It’s Official

Well, it’s official! We signed the paperwork and closed on the land last Friday, so as Andy says, we now own some gorgeous dirt and trees! At least we’ve completed the first step in this long journey! In some ways, things are moving really fast, and other ways, not very much. Our architect has completed our site plan and exterior elevations in record time. He’s going to start work on the construction documents next. We go up to the property once a week now, and fall in love with it…

You may remember the Winter cross stitch project I made for our mountain house. I’m now working on a companion cross stitch project piece to go with it called Spring Dance. When I was designing our house, I did interior elevations of all the walls so I know exactly where everything is going. It’s actually the best…

Summer Mountain Picnic

Last Saturday, we had 3 showings at our house so we had to leave for most of the day. We decided to go up to our property and spend some time there. A few years ago, I made a patriotic picnic blanket. Since the weather has finally started to warm up, we decided to put the blanket to good use and have a Summer mountain picnic. There’s nothing more rejuvenating than being in nature As John Burroughs says, “I go to nature to be soothed and healed, and to have…
