Staying in North Carolina

 As many of you know we've been on a real roller coaster ride with this issue.   Its odd how life throws us a curve ball sometimes and we're force to truly decide where our priorities lie. What we Love, whats most important and what we cherish and are willing to make adjustments for.
 If I tried to explain the hundreds of details involved in this situation it might case your head to spin on your shoulders like Linda Blair's did in the Exorsist .. hahahahahaha
   Once all the lists of pro's and Con's were made and reviewed and reviewed another five thousand times, its really best for us to stay right where we are and enjoy every moment .. I could write a book about how many things we realized were important for us and to us..   I've actually been online looking for all the places in this state to see- that I havent seen.. I'm amazed at how many wonderful things I've missed.. Life gives us wake up calls and I hear this one loud an clear.. 
We'll be taking lots of day trips as time allows and I'll be bringing back photos for ya'll an stories to go with them.

here are a couple of sights on our list to visit in the next few months.
Old Salem-- my goodness, its only 11 miles from me but I havent been there in 20 years. 
Later , when the weather is warmer more consistently- we'll go up near Cherokee and stay in a small motel right on the Pisgah River..
I love this place.  I wish you could all hear the rushing water.
 I want to give my heartfelt thanks to all of you who have prayed for us and sent us good wishes... I' also like to thank those in the different states we had on our tranfer list for all their help an support..  I will not forget your kindness.. You all helped make this time in my life more bearable.. I Thank YOU~!!!
PS~ please continue to keep us on your Prayer Lists and in your Good Wishes as we have a curvy road yet ahead of us....

Aqua~ Touches of Color

  I know many of you like Aqua:)
For several of you it came up in the color quiz I posted...  For me,this represents just enough of this color without going overboard...
 Love the dining chairs ~!
I'm always amazed at what just a touch of color can do for a space. For spring this looks like just enough without being too much and of course for fall or winter a darker tone could be added for a small financial output and you'd have a whole new look..
 Knobs and pulls still need to be added.. I'm thinking pewter or stainless steel would be a nice touch..
 I really like the pale grey on the walls. These tones just might help during the summer to mentally cool the hot humid days..A few beachy items would be a great addition too.
 Can ya'll tell I'm searching for ways to beat the heat before it even gets here, giggle.

Thanks for stopping in to see me. I always enjoy your visits and appreciate your comments..
Forgive me for not posting more often and for not visiting you as I want too.. Right now is just a busy time for me but I dont want to take a real break from blogland.

Color Quiz~ what are YOU?

Hi Folks..
  I took the test and found  I was deep violet...  COLOR QUIZ 

this is meSmile

you are darkviolet

Your dominant hues are blue and magenta. You're the one who goes to all the parties but doesn't quite fit in at every one... you know what you want, but are afraid of what the world might think of it. You're a little different and that's okay with them, and if you're smart it's okay with you too.

Your saturation level is very high - you are all about getting things done. The world may think you work too hard but you have a lot to show for it, and it keeps you going. You shouldn't be afraid to lead people, because if you're doing it, it'll be done right.

Your outlook on life is brighter than most people's. You like the idea of influencing things for the better and find hope in situations where others might give up. You're not exactly a bouncy sunshine but things in your world generally look up.

It was fun and I thought I'd share it with ya'll.. have fun and do let us know your results...
Happy Sunday and Happy all week long too..

Beautiful Inspiration in Whites

As many of you know we are in limbo land as to IF we'll be moving .. So my own home is in uncluttered-very little decor staged condition right now.. We are working on the yard which needs to be done whether we stay or go..  Right now the only decorating going on is in my mind and so I thought I'd share some inspiration photos with you from my spring folder.. These photos are all compliments of Country Living magazine..
 I am living vicariously through these amazing spaces for now.. As I get information concerning our personal status , I'll keep ya'll updated... In the meantime we are praying for a miracle that allows us to stay in North Carolina, a state we truly love.. However we are prepared to go where we are lead.. Keep us in your good thoughts please... I know I can count on my blogging buddies to wish us well and I appreciate that so much..

   I wish everyone a beautiful, peaceful spring, full of lovely flowers and happy moments with friends and loved ones... Enjoy every Moment~!!!

  I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I do.. again Courtesy of Country Living magazine:::

Thanks so much for stopping by to see me.. I love having all of you visit.. There's sweet tea and cookies out on the patio. Have a seat and stay as long as you possibly can..
