Keeping busy.

Hello everyone.
We've had two showings here at the Lakehouse. No offers.
I've packed some things, hoping for the best.
I'm trying to stay positive about selling this place.

The results of the six month CT scans, and chest xrays came back good.
I can now start going once a year!
On my way home from the physical (6 month), I stopped at one of my favorite vintage shops.

I found this wonderful mirror!
It's all chippy, and worn...perfect for the shabby mantle at the old Lakehouse.

I'm having fun with the old chairs we re-did.

I put two of the extra chairs over by the fireplace for a cozy little corner in the dining room.
I finished painting the stairway the other day. It's white, of course.
The next room I plan to do a little freshening up is one of the bathrooms.
I hope you are enjoying the weekend.
It's sunny here..but quite chilly.


  1. How wonderful that your scans came back clean! That's great news:) I love your new mirror and those little bird cloches beside it are amazing!

    Hopefully your house sells soon so you can be closer to your family:)

  2. Dear Debbie, Good news..I am happy for you. I know someone will buy the lakehouse and truly enjoy living there. It's so sweet and there's the gardens too. Blessings to you will always be special to me your own time of stress, you sent prayers to my daughter and me. You are a good soul. xoxo, Susie

  15. Hi glad about your good news from the doctors ! lovely photos...hang in there I'm sure you will find the right buyer when the time is right...have a lovely autumn weekend....Gail x

  16. Hi Debbie.....good news on your test results....Now just don't overdo with the house and moving....Our old house just got put on the market after delaying it for 15 months....We just couldn't get motivated to clean it out and throw out 26 years of stuff and the hassle of a garage sale and all the rest....and then in 2 days we found a contractor to completely gut it and re-model from inside to out....took out what we wanted and sold him the rest of the contents and in two weeks the house is almost ready to go....Listed last weekend with a realtor who claims he can sell it in a month....Sure he can.... :) I hear you about missing the kids and wanting to be closer...We would have moved back north to be near daughter and grandaughter but decided to stay in the South and God works in strange ways....We were going to buy a home on Long Beach Island in NJ.....that took the worst hit from the hurricane....our lifelong dream house would be no longer....
    Take care and good luck with the sale...Hope you sell it soon....Sue in Atlanta

  17. The mirror looks perfect on your beautiful mantle Debbie. It is a lovely mirror for sure. I also love how your new(old) chairs look in the room.
    I hope you have great luck finding someone who will fall hard for your lakehouse and take care of it as you have. I know you have loved it.
    Have a great weekend Debbie...and stay warm!

  18. I'm so glad to hear that things are going well and that you are staying healthy Debbie! What a blessing!

  19. So happy your tests came back with good news but I haven't seen you post for a while. Hope all is going well...maybe you sold your house and are moving!
