My New House And A Give Away!

Ta-da!  Here's my new little house!  Isn't it cute?  It can't help that it's not yellow like the other house I wanted...  ☺  Our offer was accepted and the inspection passed! We've still had plenty of red-tape/hoops to jump through but we're almost done.  Whew!  I'll show more pics in the days to come. 

Thank you all so much for your love and support during this heart breaking/ house hunting phase of my life!  As a tangible way of saying thanks, I'm giving away a button- ball garland!  (I hope you're not tired of them because I still love making them!)  Just leave a comment on this post telling me you *WANT* one.  You may chose a Fall colored garland similar to the one above or pick your own color combos- as long as I have them on hand.  I will chose the winner Nov. 1rst!  Good luck!

Congratulations on the new house, it's beautiful! Aren't you glad you found out the problems of the other house"before" you bought it? There's always a silver lining even when we don't see it.

I would love to win one of your beautiful garlands! Pink and red is my newest favorite color combination.

Your new house is as cute as a button! Love that front porch. You are going to be able to think of so many cute things to do with it. On my computer your new house looks like it is a creamy yellow color. It was probably the house that your were "meant" to have.

PS - I'd love to be in the drawing for one of your pretty garlands.

Congratulations on getting the house, Holly! It looks like it has a really lovely yard and nice big trees. Color is easily fixed with a few cans of paint. :-) I hope you and your family have many, many happy years there. The button ball garlands that you make are so cute. I'd love to have a chance to win one. My favorite colors are blues and greens and yellows.

Linda Ruthie said...

Hi Holly,
Congratulations! I'm glad to hear that you have found a house to make your own.
Sixteen years ago, when hubby and I were househunting, we also had our hearts broken when the adorable, old house we thought we were getting (our offer had been verbally accepted by the seller) was suddenly sold to someone else. We had a short time to find another house or have to begin all over again getting a mortgage approval. Well, we were running out of houses in our price range and took a chance looking at a one that was a bit over our budget. As it turned out we got that house and it really has been wonderful. I guess my point is that even though I still look longingly at the house we didn't get (it's across from our bank) I know that we ended up getting the house that was right for us. Things happen for a reason.
Since I have one of your cute garlands from our swap, don't put my name in for your giveaway.

Carrie @ Cottage Cozy said...

I would adore to have one of your creative garlands, holly...I love your new home!

Kim K. said...

Congratulations on your yellow home! Imagine the possibilities of decorating that sweet porch. I'm so happy for you. House shopping is stressful. I hope the next few weeks sail along with paperwork and packing.

I'd be honored to own one of our sweet garlands.

Creative Breathing said...

Elizabeth and Gary said...

Hi Holly,

I love your new home! the porch is wonderful. I love a porch we are thinking of addeding a white fence to our little porch. I can't wait to see more of your new lovely home. I am so happy for you!

Plese drop my name into the hat.

Sending hugs, Elizabeth

Dorothy Prudie Vintage said...

Oh wow....love this house. It is so darling. I know what you mean about it being yellow. Mine is all white and I hope it can be yellow some day. I am so happy for you and I know you will love the garage and the big front porch. I think in the long run you are going to be much happier in this one even though it is newer and maybe not in the country as much. Can't wait to see the pictures.

Happy Holiday Girl said...

Holly that huge front porch is so Awesome! I can just imagine all of the fun things you can do to decorate all year round! Seriously great for holiday decorating! I love your garlands! I already feel so lucky enough to have won a prize before on your blog so would feel guilty winning again but that fall colored one is really fantastic! Hope you have a great Halloween Holly!

Jacqueline said...

Do you see me waving from Washington through the raindrops and wind storms of life? I want to enter in the drawing pretty please.

I am totally overjoyed for you and your family Holly. God is so good! Sometimes the storms we pass through seem so heavy and we are confused and bewildered, and then he turns the tides of time, and gives us just what we need in this moment and time.

Your heart must be soaring! Let's go fly a kite, up to the highest height and send it soaring in celebration!

Love you much!
