What's Up!

Hi there!  I know I've been a bit absent on the blog lately, so I thought I'd let you know what's up!  What's up is that we are in the beginning stages of moving (just in-town, not across the country!).  We've been looking at houses, making offers on houses, and finally are in the process of buying a new house.  And what that means is that I'm now beginning to pack up our old house, so that we can list it.  And what that looks like is this:
 I think I should be a bit embarrassed, don't you?  That is all of my dollhouses (and yes, my husband's pinball machine!), all in the same room, and ready to move to storage.  While they make me happy, I don't know that potential buyers of my house would quite agree with the need to have 20 or so dollhouses (I don't even know the exact number!) displayed throughout the house!
 Here they are, organized a little more neatly at my mother-in-law's house, where I will store them until we move.
Look at all those pretty roofs!  It's like a really close-knit neighborhood!
 And this is what my studio looked like about a week ago!
 But this is what it looks like now.  I displayed the doll dressers in my shelves, just so that it doesn't look completely empty!
I left a few art supplies out that I'll need until we move, but this is about all that's in the room now.
As I'm going around packing and staging the house, and simplifying a ton, I almost wish that we could live this way all the time!  So nice and sparse and uncluttered!  But, I know I'd start to miss all my STUFF before too long!
I'll keep you all updated on what's happening.  At this stage, we're waiting for an appraisal on our new house, and then will hopefully close in two months and move right before Christmas.  Wish me luck!!

Congratulations on finding a new home, Corey! I hope yours sells fast so you can close the door on that chapter and start a new one with no worries. I'm glad your dollhouses are gathered together like a small town to await the move to their new location. What an exciting time to be moving into a new home just in time for Christmas!

My last move was so hard! I hope you have a good move. It's hard with kids and also when you have lots of stuff like you and I do! Good luck! Your dolly dressers look so pretty and cheerful on the shelves! Can't wait to see you decorate in your new home.
