My husband and I have been talking for years about moving to Kentucky close to my family. Living in Texas has its ups and downs like anywhere. The heat is unbearable at times. One day a cousin put post on facebook about a house for sale.. It was so grand with elegance and details that you don't ever see on new house. We decided to go for it. We put a bid on the house and drove up to Kentucky. When we got there, it was nothing like it was advertised and would need so much work. The same cousin told us about another house that was a historical home. She knew the lady well that once lived there. Since she passed the family was going to part everything out and put it up for auction. This broke my cousins heart. So we agreed to go see it... We pulled up and first thing I saw was 2 really old Victorian style homes, one more finished looking- at least on the outside.. The one we looked at was a big white Victorian home. It was full of antiques and in very good condition considering it was 150 years old. We decided almost within that day we were going to buy it..I didn't even know it had a Gazebo on the side.. I always wanted one of those...Now I have one. I have my dreams come true. I go outside and take my coffee and think about all the things I want to do when we retire and live there full time. So here's to my cup of happy.. I feel very blessed.
I hope you enjoy this layout. Some of my favorite things to add to a layout are Translucent items such as Ranger glossy accents or Crackle accents, acetates, translucent acrylic items, stickles, rhinestones and anything shiny like epoxy. I love to take older items and jazz them up to fit my layout. I would love to see how you mix up or the items above or jazz up older product and mix with new product. Let me know what you think.
