|Morning Sunlite Across My Headboard|
You know how it is, when you are on vacation and first wake in the morning. For a split second you are not sure where you are. That is how I felt waking up the first morning at Das Kleine Haus.
It didn't take long before I saw all my clothes packed in plastic containers...and remembered, I have moved.
Taking the first peek downstairs...yes, it is my furniture, just re-arranged somewhat. The big pieces of furniture are in place with everything else lined up against each wall.
|The artwork in containers|
Lamps. baskets and chairs, organized by categories, just waiting to be chosen for a new spot in the Haus.
It will take time to sort through it all. I'm hoping you will enjoy watching as I take on my new life at Das Kleine Haus on the Prairie.
Dear Meggie, I wish you a very happy life in your '' Das Kleine Haus '' ..:))ReplyDelete
Your home seems so cute.. Really cute and warm...
Be very happy...:))
Thank you Beck.....Delete
Wishing you lots of happy times in 'Das Kleine Haus'. I'm sure that it will soon start to feel more familiar. JxReplyDelete
Hello Jan...I think when I cook my first meal there, it will all change.Delete
Oh, Meggie, it takes a LOOOONG time to feel like where you are is HOME. Knowing you, that will be sooner rather than later - you'll have it whipped into shape in no time. I always end up changing things around a lot in the first year as we get to know the house and the way that we live in it.ReplyDelete
I think that is why it was important for me to first place the big pieces of furniture. All the rest will take more time to think about.Delete
I'm nearing the third year in my house, and still moving stuff around! And don't even ask about the painting that still needs to be done ;) I need superpowers like you, Meggie!Delete
You have a baby to take care of...that makes a big difference.Delete
We had two cats...they travelled all over with us when hubby was in the Royal Navy,then emigrated to Canada with us. A bed,food bowls, a litter tray, and us was all they ever needed to feel at home.We have moved a lot but each time I remember the cat's attitude. 'Home' is a choice,I think.ReplyDelete
I like that line...."Home is a choice". Now, if only I can find my food bowl...laughing.Delete
Take it from someone who has moved a lot...Home is where You make it and just looking at your beloved pieces of furniture, baskets, etc., I know it won't take you long to nestle in. Remember, a new chapter awaits you with all it's marvels. I know I can't wait to see it unfold, dearest friend, XOXOReplyDelete
Thank you Susan....for your thoughtful reminder. I still have three more days for removing a few more items from the farm.Delete
Glad the move went smoothly. I always take a long time to decide where to hang the pictures. Everything else seems to fall into place but pictures take forethought and commitment!ReplyDelete
Hello Ms Sparrow....I like those two words, "forethought and commitment". Let the fun begin!Delete
Meggie I'm glad you are there in the new house! It will be 'home' before you know it! hugs, LindaReplyDelete
Meggie would you think about disabling the word verification....it took me four times on the comment above and no telling how many for this comment. Please! thanks, LindaReplyDelete
Thanks Linda....I will take care of it before tomorrow. Thanks for letting me know.Delete
I've only moved a few times in my 41 year marriage, but I remember it takes time to make a house feel like home. Our present house took a while to feel like home. It was after painting some rooms and redoing a few things myself, getting my things on the walls, etc, then it started to feel like mine and home. Yours will be home in no time. It's looks charming already! Best of luck to you!!ReplyDelete
Thanks Cheryl....The good news is I am ready to start my new life in this haus.Delete
You have a lovely bedroom and I'm sure everything are going to be very nice.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Elna. I continue to enjoy your blog...and beautiful cat.Delete
Das Kleine Haus looks warm and inviting! Enjoy putting everything in it's place and making it your own! We have moved into a small one-bedroom apartment with most of our stuff in storage. We have been looking at land and looking at houses for weeks on end, and we have decided that it's time to stop looking and make a decision or we'll be looking foreover! I'm ready to be in a home of our own with all of my things around me!ReplyDelete
Hello Jan....I guess you know how I am feeling with so much packed away in containers. At least, I do have my own bed set up...the rest will take time. Keep me posted on your next move.ReplyDelete
When ever we have moved which isn't too many times, but the first thing we always put up is the bed and the second is sort the kitchen cupboards out. After that you can take your time.ReplyDelete

Thanks Christy...I totally agree with you. And that is what I have done. The bed is made, the kitchen cupboards are organized, and the fridge has food in it. The rest will just take time.Delete
I am glad to see that you are moved in the new "old" house. I'm sure it was a lot of work but will be so worth it, in the end. The house looks lovely and I look forward to seeing more of it as you get settled. I hope you have time to check my blog today and find the Award that I have given you..ReplyDelete
Thanks for the award ! I will read more about it later this evening...Delete
Ditto what Christy said (and I have moved too many times to count), only to add that I really know I'm home when my "special" pieces either get hung on the walls or placed on shelves.ReplyDelete
My special piece is the "Blue Bell Ice Cream" in the fridge.Delete
