As you can well imagine, the past few weeks have been quite busy for Mr. Cobblestone and me as we have been moving into our new home in Maine. It has been quite the adventure and we are both simply thrilled that we decided to take this leap into a new life.
I've decided to take a short break from unpacking boxes (and boxes and boxes) to post a few pics for you. Our home is a darling two story cape, only 1 mile from the harbor.
These pics are the ones from the real estate listing when the home was for sale. The previous owners took all their furnishings, of course, but the pics will give you some idea of what the house looks like.
We are located on a beautiful wooded lot
that measures just under 2 acres.
It has a great wrap around deck,
and a large living room and kitchen.
There are two more bedrooms upstairs.
The larger one has been turned into Mr. Cobblestone's office.
And this precious space is now being converted into my studio.
I will be sure to share pics when it is finished.
We've already been hard at work making changes to the home to make it ours. The first changes were to the family room. We removed an over sized shelving unit to give the fireplace its proper status in the room. And we removed that hideous wood-burner insert to expose the brick hearth.
Ah yes, much better!
There is still a lot of laura-ing to be done to the house
to bring it up to my decorating standards,
(hey, you saw my other house),
but I'm sure we will enjoy the process.
Stay tuned ~ I'm in the mood for a mouse giveaway!!!!
