The Realtors are Coming….


We are moving!

Since our home is going up for sale I made a few changes.

My office is actually our formal dining room so I brought my picnic table out away from the wall and put a bench and a couple of slip covered chairs around it.  I bought some natural burlap for a table cloth (in the garden section at Ace) and lit a few candles in recycled jars.

This looks kind of like a shabby board room…..


A multi-purpose room…..
(drop your junk, work, craft, blog  and now even EAT & DRINK)

I’m trying to scale back my decor a bit but I just can’t make it “generic”….
I’ll take down those family photos soon.
(my dog looks dead but she is just really lazy)

 I took the big picture of my boys out and replaced it with a white framed mirror.
If you want this house…I will sell it to you –  =)
I will even leave it furnished & decorated so sweet for you!
We are moving to Virginia….
We are excited for the change…. new job for the hubby and looking forward to a fresh start!

Its so beautiful, I am sure you will have a buyer in no time. Becky from \”Farmgirl Paints\” moved to Virginia not to long ago..must be a happenin' place. Hope your house sells quick and can't wait to see what you do with your new one!

Well…if I went to your house with a realtor my big question would be can I buy the furnishings too?!! It looks great. We have to move in a year (my husband is commuting until our youngest graduates). So I really feel what you are going through.

I'm so excited for you! I think your house looks amazing. I love how you put the picnic table in the dining room/office to show how one would fit in there. I know that's what realtors like. They want the rooms to reflect their purpose for the buyers. Your home has so much charm and style that I can't imagine that it will sit too long. I think your house is worth ALOT! That's alot more than what we could ever get for our house. Good luck with the moving process.

I don't know why I feel so stunned, and I was wondering where you were lately. So selfishly I'm thinking….\”gee just think of all the NEW amazing decorating Holly can do to a new place\”, and secretly wonder if you knew the realtors were coming for a while now?I'm already sad I'll miss your moving sale.~Bliss~

You whole home looks beautiful as always! I can never understand how it can be a bad thing to have a home decorated with all of the personal touches when trying to sell? For me it easier to see the potential with furniture in a home as opposed to big empty rooms. Good luck with selling your home! I don't think it will take long at all with how nice and beautifully decorated it is! The economy and selling homes is a lot worse here in Michigan so at least you don't live here! 🙂 ~ Jamie

Good luck selling your house, I actually live in Madison but we have 2 daughters who live in Richmond and they love it If you move around there you are going to love all the thrifting places,my daughters blog is The Richmond Thrifter. I mentioned it on your Noisy Goose blog because she goes there when she comes to visit and loves the store too. Again, good luck with your house!! Paddy37855@aol.com.

We have sold houses and never did I make it look \”generic\” even though realtors think everything should be cleared and depersonalized. Your lovely home decor will help to sell your house. Can't imagine it won't sell quickly. I'm curious where in Virginia you're moving since we live in northern Virginia.Mary Alice

That must make you so sad! It makes me sad because your house is so \”you\” and you've put so much love into it. Can you move it here to Canada? I'll take it! hahaha! I'm sure your new house will inspire you to make an even more beautiful home…if that's possible! xo wendy

Congratulations Holly…how exciting for you! I would love to live in VA…so my style. Even paired down your home is amazing…I hope you will continue to blog and share what you do with your new home. I would love to buy your house…fully decorated of course, but that isn't in the cards. If you do need to sell anything…like maybe the door that goes to your basement in the kitchen…please feel free to contact me…I will make the drive!
