Today...

I'm suppose to be taking down all the pictures in the house. We need to fill all the nail holes.....I'm excited to move omg...you know it....but I hate a bare house. The next time I will see these pictures is in several months, once our sea container arrives and we make a house a home again. It's bitter sweet really but ...this chair is so comfy!




Joining my "girls" over at Communal Global

I like that - my walls are kind of bare. I never am able to achieve a nice Pottery Barn effect so I don't even try.

May said...

WOW!!! Love that wall with pictures!! I am getting some ideas now seeing your wall!!:-) We haven't put up anything as yet, for the same reason of filling up the holes and repainting when we leave. But what the heck!!! I wish you all the best on your move!!

Lisa said...

We are moving too! I am really excited actually...but a move across town will obviously be a bit easier than the move you are embarking on...where exactly are you guys headed? Are you moving to New York? (Like I said, I haven't been around in awhile... ;))

Buckeroomama said...

I love your wall and your sofa cover. Hmmm, maybe if I get a floral print, the smudges and pen marks won't be as obvious...?

All the best with your move!

Follygirl said...

What a lovely sitting area, very comfortable
Yes, it certainly is not nice when your things are now on a long way ... but then again you will feel yourself quite at home.

Liebe Grüße, Petra

i love all your pictures! i enlarged it and saw many familiar ones...i love the spring, winter, fall road in the woods shots...and the grouping of two people walking away from the camera..hard to believe the time has really come! so excited for you...soon the move will be over and then getting organized in a new home...have you gone back in your posts and relived moving in to this house? i think i will...
today is my first yoga fusion class...it started last week but as you know i was in KC...sounds like a fun class to me and not so hard like my other workouts! :)
have a productive tuesday!!

What a wonderful wall of memories! I so dislike moving-I hope I never have to do it again...unless it's something totally fabulous!!! And, I'd say this is pretty fabulous for you! Will you be staying in a hotel until your things arrive?

Boy that is going to be a big job! You have so many great pictures there. Good luck!

Must go back and check where you are moving to...

Best wishes for a happy day,
Natasha, Stacey and Holly.

Debbie said...

Life with Kaishon said...

I would totally like to sit in that pretty couch. It looks super comfortable!

Laurie said...

I sigh with you.I moved from New Orleans to Honduras. I loved my blue and white striped sofa and the bookshelves and mementos in that room. And the piano. However, my new orange/brown striped sofa and rustic wooden armoire of books are pretty cool too. You will overcome! Get packing!

preppyplayer said...

I am going to miss that room... lots of memories of our times there- I am not being sarcastic!
I loved the morning light and how comfy it was. I especially loved how you decorated it :)
Houzzzzzzzz!

A Day That is Dessert said...

That's always the hardest part of moving for me... good luck my friend! xoxo

Kristina P. said...

It will be all cozy and worth it.

blueviolet said...

Won't it be so fun to put them back up when you get over here?!! Yippee!

Matty said...

The best part will be when you get to decorate all over again.

lisaroy said...

I love your gallery wall! I'm sure it is bitter sweet to be leaving, as anxious as you are to move, you've been able to experience something that so few get to do. Try to soak it all in before you go! : )

Sonya said...

Im so excited for you:) Love that wall! I havent hung up any family photos yet..I've been here 3 years and I still dont feel at home yet..maybe I need to take the plunge and hang up some photos..lol

Dita said...

Back after a long vacation and re-entry into blogland (partial, actually since I still have my Dutch houseguest for a week more)...I was wondering if my favorite Frau moved yet.

I see you are in the thick of things....yes, before you know it you'll be "home"...where the "heart" is.

Tezzie said...

A fabulous wall...just think how exciting it'll be to create it (or something like it) all over again :D

Thanks for joining us...commenting on our pictures...visiting our blogs and becoming a friend. A true Communal Global 'girl' ;D

Ina in Alaska said...

You need to get crack-a-lacking girlfriend!! That couch is so pretty...xoxo

pve design said...

Wow, good you have an image of all this to follow up when all arrives state-side!
wishing you a happy move....love to help you with a raw cleanse when you land...it is so invigorating and you will have tons of energy...know you will need that to make your house a home ---in the good ole USA~

Purple Flowers said...

Glad you're returning home, but I'm sure not as much as you are glad. X off the days on the calendar. I'm sure you know them by heart! Congrats!

rachel... said...

I kind of like bare walls. I've been contemplating removing all of my pictures and knick knacks just for a cleaner look.

Good luck with your move, Frau!!!

the Lola Letters said...

What a lovely collection on your wall! You have a gift for arranging your pictures! Love, love.

Good luck with the move!

I don't love the process of moving, but definitely enjoy living somewhere new and different when all is said and done!

Joanna Jenkins said...

What an inviting spot. TIme is really flying by Frau. It won't be long now.

And can we still call you Frau when you're back in America?
