New Kid on the Blog !

Monday, September 19, 2011

Hey Y'all !

This is my first blog, so here goes.......

I am new to blogging, new to Georgia, and loving it!  My initial intention for this blog was to share my ideas and discoveries on decorating, redesigning, and repurposing..  But I think it will also reflect my new life here in Canton, GA.

My husband and youngest daughter(15) and I move here 2 /12 months ago after two+ years of wishing, dreaming and planning to move.  We came from Broward County Florida, and I had lived there for 41 years.  After visiting the Smokey Mountains some 25 years ago (or more)....I knew someday I would move to this part of the country.  Some place where there are four seasons, but not a heck-of-a-lot of snow.  My husband has lived in the Atlanta area before, and has wanted to return, so that was the natural progression of things.  With the addition of better work opportunities for him kind of sealed the deal.

So, here we are!  I also have a daughter in college, senior year, in Ft. Myers, FL.  She is coming for a visit in two weeks with her boyfriend....I can't wait!!'s some pictures of the new house, which I love, love love!!!!!

                            FRONT OF THE HOUSE
                                ain't it purdy

                     FRONT PORCH  (always wanted one of these)

       so many beautiful trees, bushes and plants I've never seen before

          TERRACED BACK YARD....complete with swing :)

So.......that's the view of the outside.  I will bring you inside soon.  I have finished my fall decorations, and have gotten some tablescape ideas from some of you.  So, I have to add a few finishing touches and take some pics.  In the meantime, I would love hear from you!  I have so much to learn about the world of blogging, and it doesn't help that I'm not too computer savvy.  But with a little help from my friends...that means YOU.....I will do just fine.

First do you get on a link party?


  1. Welcome to the blogosphere. I was blog hopping and came this way from Lemon Lane Cottage. There is so much to learn and so many people to meet out here, an adventure online would be an apt description. Enjoy!

  2. Thank you for your kind words Sally, what an adventure it it! Barb

  3. Welcome,welcome! I know you will find many kindred spirits here in blogland. Your home is absolutely beautiful. I can't wait to see the inside. I am not the most computer savy person either but after a while it will all come naturally. I will email you with how I find and join linky parties tonight. Patty
