MOVING


This looks like a great place to plop down for a break and close your eyes for a few minutes.
 Can you tell I am moving and up for a little r and r? I have been going through so many items, organizing, throwing away, giving away and "Craigslisting". My muscles are pumped, my back sore and I am becoming more ruthless by the moment as I prioritize and cut out non-essentials and the excess baggage that tends to accumulate when you've lived in the same place for a while. I may not be as "up" on responding to comments for a while, so I apologize in advance!
All whining aside, I think the DeGournay wallpaper is so beautiful. What a perfect, sunny shade of yellow, too.
Now, back to the grindstone.....

Good for you. Hope you saw my post, perhaps it will inspire a remedy for clutter and tossing out what you will never need, want nor miss.

My heart goes out to you. We just completed a big move. Hopefully our last one. I would have a hard time leaving that beautiful wallpaper.

Beach House Living said...

An extreme discard, donate, needs to occur here as well. I'm not sure where to begin.

Kwana said...

Good luck with your move. It's such hard work. Love this image.

MrsLittleJeans said...

love the wall paper...so wish I could be doing the same, ruthless cleaning, simplifying, throwing away the nonessentials...good idea to take a break though and to celebrate your accomplishments, right?

Have a great day Anne,

xx

Moving can be so stressful but I actually think unpacking is a ton of fun! Assuming of course, you've been good about not packing everything and it sounds like you have! Some times it's nice to start off fresh and re-collect. Good luck :)

Oh, Anne! I wish I could help you. I would come over in an instant. I'm pretty much a professional mover right now (in the last 2 and 1/2 years I've moved from Idaho, to Alaska, to Washington and now to Texas)! Throw out what you can, and enjoy the process of "new". My thoughts are with you!!

Debra said...

What a bright and beautiful corner~ I would love to be right there. I too have been cleaning, editting, purging all sorts of things. It feels so good. One mans trash is another mans treasure...

Jacqueline said...

Dear Anne,
How exciting but, a lot of hard work. It will be worth it when you are sitting in your new home knowing that you have de-cluttered. XXXX

Moving is so much work and it is overwhelming. The good news is that a new home is very exciting - good luck.
Best,
Colleen

Jo said...

We *need* to move so I am forced to clean out, giveaway, toss a few of our so called treasures.

Where is this moving taking you ~ hope it's somewhere wonderful.

Beatriz said...

Ugh, I am so feeling for you! I'm next. I move in Texas in June. Nothing like moving in 500 degree weather! Woohoo!

Kate Coveny Hood said...

I'm in love with that image. Googling it right now.

Hope the move goes smoothly!

Melanie said...

Good luck with the move. I have just done it and it is a lot of work.

Laura Casey Interiors said...

Good luck with the move! love the paper.

Renee Finberg said...

the paper is beautiful.
the ground in the paper is the exact color of my kitchen walls.

go easy on yourself...

hey anne, was going to leave a comment on the punchy pieces post, but for some reason i cant find the link for comments. maybe my pc is fritzing, seems to be a fair bit of it going round!

when i saw the green chest of drawers in the preview windowe, i thought 'man that new painting is GORGEOUS' - {just an idea :) }

good luck with the unpacking - i'll be thinking of you, its complicated has finally come out on dvd here, so a glass of red and the sofa are calling me! julesx

Kerri said...

Love any De Gournay wallpaper, and this one is just delicious! Good luck with your move, it's always a huge job but just think of the new blank canvas waiting for you at the other end! K xx

rosiecampbell said...

Doesn't it feel a bit cathartic to shed some of your stuff? Good luck! Have a great weekend.

La Petite Gallery said...

Dear Anne, its not so easy to move, I know... but think of the joy of your new home and placing your treasures in it. Take care!

Catherine said...

Great wallpaper.

Tonia of Chic Modern Vintage said...

Not moving, but doing the exact same thing, craiglisting, etsying, giving away, putting out on the street, Freecycling, you name it. I'm getting rid of anything that is not needed in my house.
