The New Place-- Before and After

Life has been full of all kinds of excitement. This week I had Lasik surgery on my eyes. What a miracle!  I had such a great experience. The good folks at Hoopes Vision in Sandy, Utah were remarkable.  It has been 28 years that I have been wearing contacts and now I can see the alarm clock in the morning without asking my husband what time it is---he is happy! 
But really I am thrilled!! Now on the the good stuff.

Finally --- a few photos of my new home!

I have to say this has been such a fun experience.  Starting with a fresh canvas!

This is the BEFORE lots of white walls!  Now, I moved from a home that had all kinds of color on the walls, so this time I decided to go more neutral and see how it felt.  We painted three different colors of taupe throughout the house.

AFTER - A little warm paint on the walls and some furniture.  Notice the lamps, yes - I do love lamps!

So--- these are a few different spaces in my new home.
  I will be sharing some tips and ideas with you on what was new and what was old and some shots of my other house so you can see how we can use the original items in the new space.

It will be fun---so come on back!!

I am joining Transformation Thursday --- see what's happening over there.

    Your new home is gorgeous. I love the light color of the walls. I have all my walls and carpet a light shade of tan and it just allows me to use every color in the rainbow. I love how pretty your rooms are decorated. It is lovely. Hugs, Marty
