This is where I get to say anything I feel like saying and you get to agree with me.
We will also share stories and chocolate if you have any.
Naps are also encouraged, if shopping is out of the question.

A House is not a Home

While we wait for the day to come when we will hop on an airplane and fly to the United States, to find a new home ... I look at online real estate websites.

I found a house.
It has everything I want. 
It also has too much loud wallpaper and some rooms are painted hideous loud colors.. purple. Yes, purple!
But aside from the shiny silver and white kitchen wallpaper, there is a fabulous living room with bookcases and a big fireplace and French doors to the gardens.
There are bathrooms galore and a bedroom with built-ins and an en suite bath which would be perfect for guests.
And there are no neighbors.
I like it.

I hope it is there when we get back ..

Short ? Long ? Age related ?

So how long is your hair and do you think older women should cut their hair short ?

Add this to the list

We are counting down to 2 weeks,4 at the most until we move back to the US and find a house in the country to live in.
I am going from living in the heart of a huge noisy crowded city to a home that will have acres and woods and fields  and perhaps a  forest nearby.
And this house will be the total opposite of the home we now have.
We live in a 100 year old apartment building, that was originally a private home .. a petit hotel.
It has only 2 apartments to a floor , balconies, french doors and 15 foot high ceilings and molding ... everywhere !
I have a "modern" kitchen and bath but the rest of the house is as it was , with new paint and sanded, polished floors.

Now I am going to go to the total opposite.
I will live (probably) in an old house. Farmhouse ? Chalet ? Mid-Century Modern ? 
We are being open-minded, we will see everything and the one that clicks will be The One.

So for now I wait for the time to pass, everything is scheduled, people will pack, people will ship and people will store our things.
We just have to pack our bags , get on the plane and find a hotel when we get there .
Then from there on - it is an adventure.

Everyone should have adventures.
As often as possible.
It keeps you young and interested .... and some might say, interesting.

Except when you go on and on about decorating and colors and kitchens.
That is where it can get sticky.
But we won't worry about that now.

This is a kitchen I love. It has gone into my file of Kitchens that I Love.
It will be interesting to see , when all is said and done, what we end up with.

Notes from a Fashion Victim

Nothing like a little Chanel shopping ~
 Little baubles to add some  colour would be nice.
My favourite colour.
