A new canvas on which to paint??

Well, I've been a little busy this past week.  I have mentioned in my earlier posts that our house is on the market....well, this past week we got an offer!!  And after a couple of counters to get those eager buyers back in line with our asking price - (as much as we can in this market) we have a deal!  OH - YEA - and we have to be out in little more than three weeks!!  WHUT?

So - needless to say - we have been fast and furious to find our next house!  Today we went through a record number of 11 houses in a four hour period - and found ourselves frantically making an offer on one that really shines.  This offer is still in progress - so no popping the bubbly yet....but I have to say that amidst all this hustle, I almost forgot what this means:  I GET TO MOVE IN TO A NEW HOUSE AND DECORATE AGAIN!  I know - Pottery Barn corporate has gotten the press release - and they are licking their chops!  Behind Decorated Doors may make their quarter yet!  

More soon - cannot wait to share pics of whatever house we end up getting....let the "before" and "after" comparisons begin!

I say crack the bubbly.. I mean, you sold your house is a sh%!!y market... and that is a reason to celebrate. You should give yourself a pat on the back, as I am sure that you can attribute a lot of the house's allure to the fact that it is immaculately staged by YOU!!! YAY! Can't wait to see the new res, wherever it may be.

Hi, I came across your blog from the material girl site. It looks like we are in the same boat. I am also transiting from corporate to follow my passion in decorating. We should definitely connect and share our journey. Best of luck to you with your new home and new business!
