I hope that you enjoyed your weekend. Thanks to all of you for the comments and well wishes for my move. All went well and I am still recuperating and getting things organized. I apologize for being a bit MIA, but will be able to catch up on correspondence and comments this week.

It's amazing how some people have the innate ability to even make a catch-all console in a hall appealing. There's something so "fetching" about this table arrangement in Sabrina Linn's home.
I think that the color from the roses and the green boxes have a lot to do with it (although the retro phone, mismatched frames and seagrass baskets don't exactly hurt, either)
Excuse me for now, as I have to get back to my own arranging. Right now I need to make room in the garage amongst the boxes just to park my car!

You're already better off than us!! 6 weeks later, and we're still parking outside. ...but, our task for this week is box removal. Do you have any suggestions for getting rid of them? I was thinking to post them for free on Craigslist. Have fun arranging!

What a lovely collection of things. I really like the old phone, flowers and green boxes. A great combo!

Eat the elephant one bite at a time! I'm sure that's what your days feel like. Before you know it, you'll have your life back. Can't wait for a new post!

Good luck unpacking! Ugh! I think that is worse than packing! Going from Michigan to Australia to Florida and back to Michigan in the past 4 years, yeah I'm done moving for a bit! ;)

I feel for you. You will be settled in now time. I know that it feels like you are drowning but you will get there!

I wish I was moving back to Florida:)
