House of Fifty...

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter with friends and family.  Just a reminder about a new e magazine that is launching on Monday. 
 
Janell Beals from Isabella and Max is the founding editor.  I am sure you have all been to her blog and seen the wonderful ideas she shares on a daily basis.  Janell is also the queen of tutorials!
Expect to see not only great design, but topics such as what books to read....food, entertaining and fashion.  Inspiration for the everyday!  I promise you will not be disappointed.

On another note I did go back to the flea market and get these items...

It is going in one of my guest rooms...
And this....which is going in my den.

But....remember the picture I showed you of my floors?  The leak from the DW.  Well listen to this.....they can not be matched.  When we added on to this house we poured a slab so they had to use engineered floors because the boards are shorter and they won't warp.  The old floors in the rest of the house are 3/4 inch hardwoods.  After they were all finished together you could not tell at all. 


SO.....We have to MOVE out...[they are moving us out] EVERYTHING in the whole house.  Yes you read that right.  They are replacing all the engineered  floors [the den and kitchen area] and then are going to refinish ALL the floors in the whole house.  AYFKM?????

They also have to take up the granite, kitchen cabinets....holy crap.  I am freaking out but of course my head is spinning.  White floors like my master............everywhere?  WHOA NELLIE......

There's more....so much more....but I won't go into that right now.  This Monday starts the Nicholas House installation.  All week.  And the movers are coming May 2.  I am feeling wound up a little tight right now....

Just talking about it is frightening.....10 days in a hotel with my dogs.

On another note, I wish I could figure out how to get the BH&G magazine shots on my blog without them turning into ? [question marks].  Geez.

Sherry- So sad on the floors! Have a good hotel vacation!

Do you have a Mac? Have you tried the Grab application? It grabs images right off the screen.

Happy Easter!

...then I turn them from the larger .tiff file into a smaller .jpeg file in Photoshop. My version of Grab only seems to capture images as .tiff

OH. My. God!

You poor thing! I can't imagine how upset you must be about having to move out.

My brother, sister in law, and their SIX kids lived in an extended stay hotel for 4 MONTHS while they were renovating. They survived and you will too!

Knowing you, you will make this all work for the best, and your house will get an amazing makeover in the process.

Cheer up, Sherry. You will be fine. After 10 days at the hotel, your home will have a beautiful makeover.

Holy Crapcakes!!! I'm so sorry you have to go through this!!! But on the bright side, you will LOVE your new (and old) floors once you return.

Cathy Wall said...

That is sure a good news/bad news story... Think of all of the great blogging mileage you'll get with your tales of a hotel stay with your pups and your beautiful new floors! I can't wait to hear... Happy Easter!

what hotel takes those sheepdogs?! very funny. I think, though, that you need to have a girls day out by the hotel pool...hint hint.

We are getting new floors soon also. I have been putting it off because of the upheavel it's going to cause. Kitchen & foyer tile needs to be ripped up. Old carpet removed. Dust EVERYWHERE! But we aren't moving out. It will be done one room at a time with all the furnishing moved to other rooms. I'm dreading it. No wonder your back hurts.
Loved your spread in BHG by the way. So pretty!

Janell @ Isabella and Max said...

Sherry, unbelievable! Hang in there, good luck on your install this week and thanks not only for the shout out, but for working with us on featuring one of your room designs!! Janell

Whew! My head would be spinning, too! But I must admit that I would be pretty darn excited about having my floors refinished.

About the photos - do you have SnagIt? Sometimes re-saving them through that works for me ...

Love the paintings!!

Tessa said...

xo,
Tessa

quintessence said...

On the other hand, congrats on the BH&G and House of Fifty articles. Just wonderful! I love, love the premiere issue of House of Fifty!!

First BH&G and now House of Fifty?? Girl you're good. Good and famous!! I saw the BH&G article while I was at the dentist and I showed everyone my friend in the magazine. They were most impressed, as was I!!

Tiffany @ Savor Home said...

Oh my! I didn't realize! But you get all new floors that will be GORGEOUS right?

It was so great to meet you today! I truly had a great time. I came home, showered, and have been curled up with House of Fifty. Loving it...

Oh wow, that is crummy! But I guess out with the old and in with the fabulous?
Congrats on BH&G feature - love your home! And your House of Fifty feature. Still love that nursery!

Who knew a little dishwasher could wreak such havoc on a house. Just enjoy the room service, having your bed made every day and the spa services at the hotel:)

Privet and Holly said...

great when it is
all done!!!
Remember to breathe.
Sounds like you have
A LOT on your plate!
