The picture and the post go together, I promise.

Okay.  I’ve got some major updates to give you.
Our house sold.
It took about two weeks at the super-duper low, low, low, price that we reduced it to.
Imagine me screaming YIPPEE in my best Jessie the cowgirl voice.
Love that it sold..Hate that we lost all of our equity.
But, totally trusting God.
He is such a wonderful provider. 
For real.
So, remember, we’ve been living in another family’s house for the past 5 weeks.
We are totally inspired by this sweet family and their generosity. 
Their openness to share their home has been contagious in our hearts.
Kingdom Living at it’s best.
But, we’re ready to…
sit on our sofas.
eat on our dishes.
play our boardgames.
get our clothes out of our closets.
eat dinner at our kitchen table.
watch tv again.

We found a rental house that we are moving into on Friday.
We’re painting every night this week so that we can be finished by move in day.
We’re covering up the…
pink living room.
two shades of orange dining room.
yellow kitchen.
mint green half bath.
bright yellow master bedroom & bathroom.
darker mint green kids bathroom.
pink kids bedroom with teal green trim.
white kids bedroom with a huge purple wave around the center of the room.
{purple wave that was painted with puff paint, and I’m not kidding.}
My motto.
“Too much of a good thing is not a good thing!”
This house has way too much color.
So, out with the color and in with the neutral.
Clean and crisp works for me.

I look forward to showing you pictures of the before and afters.
I’m determined to enjoy renting.

Oh! The picture in the post….
I am sooooooo adding collections of things to the tops of my armoirs.
Love that look.
It feels warm and cozy and inviting.

If you want to see how others have added some warm and cozy to their homes,
go here and here.
