And She Was

How did I get here?
Well, our move to the new house was a success. It wasn't quite as stressful as I had imagined thanks to those little pink pills that the doctor gave me "for emergencies."
So what is the first thing that you should unpack when you move to a new place?
That's correct: The Wine Glasses!
Would you like a glass of white or red?
The chives found a new hangout.
They really like it here.
Gawd, I have a Lot of STUFF!!
Unpacked this cute little trio of bird doorstops.
Here's a pretty purple tree in my new neighborhood. It's not in my yard, unfortunately, but it is close to the take-out taco place. So I will get to visit it frequently...very frequently.
It is Agapanthus season. Lovely.
Here is my Teapot Collection.
It was all wrapped up in newspaper for years and years with only a few casualties.
Some of these things have not seen the light of day since 1998!
Here's a real antique.
 Most kids get trophies for something impressive like swimming or soccer or tennis. I got one for dressing up and acting silly. Some things never change. 
Isn't this a scary plant? I'm not sure what it is but it's in my backyard. I think it might be a Blackbird of Paradise.
Here is Pancake standing guard over the laundry. We don't have a washer or dryer hooked up yet so I'm doing laundry by hand like a good pioneer woman. It really does smell nice when you hang it outside though, doesn't it?
Here's the living room so far. I think it has lots of potential, don't you? I'm taking decorating tips from this blog mainly because I just love the name:
What a long day. Wheh!  Soaking my tired wonky feet to test out the new bathtub.
I'm going to sit up a little bit so you can check out my bib overalls. They are vintage just like me. I bought them in the 1980's at the Gap on Broadway in New York City. They have seen me through two pregnancies, many moves, several beer parties and numerous "fat days." I just Love them.
In fact this whole outfit is exactly something I wore in the 80's including the bandana.
(I know I look like a hillbilly but I don't play the banjo. It belongs to my son.)
Isn't this bandana cute? London, Paris, New York, Tokyo and Rome! Hmmm... I can't remember where I got it. That's what happens when you get old. You forget stuff.
Did you know that overalls are trending? It's true! Check it out HERE.
See? If you keep things long enough....
This is probably what I was listening to when I first wore these overalls.
Thank you so much for coming along on the tour of my new house!
Please Stop by Again SOON!!
