Friday Smiles 196

Hello everyone.  I'm joining in with Annie to share this week's smiles.  You can check out what everyone has to be happy about HERE .

I've been busy trying to get settled into my new home.  I'm so excited that I will have my very own designated craft room!  The house is all on one level, which is the primary reason for moving.  No more stairs is a good thing!

This week I'm sharing a photo of Katie.  She usually runs out of the room when I pick up my phone to take a picture; she's just camera shy I guess.  This time she didn't see it coming!  She was so exhausted from watching the movers and me unpacking.
 The dogs love their new backyard.  It's much larger than what they had before.  Not to mention the smells of wildlife such as skunks, raccoons and deer!
In the evenings the lighting out there is terrible.  A friend told me about collars that glow in the dark.  I think I might give those a try.
 Here's one of the neighbors.  Isn't he just beautiful!

I will try to get around to see what's bringing smiles to your face, although it may not be until the weekend.  I have a load of errands to run today!

WOYWW - The Beginnings of a Good Thing!

Hello everyone.  I'm joining in with Julia for WOYWW.  Go to her blog HERE  to join in the fun or have a good snoop at craft spaces all around the world!

Since I last joined in I sold the condo, bought the house, painted the entire house and redid the hardwood floors and moved in.  I'll leave that for another post as I don't want to get out of hand!

I will show you the beginnings of my craft room.  Yep!!  A real designated craft room.  I've ordered two bookshelves, a desk and a turquoise chair on wheels.  The desk is also on wheels and will not be located right in front of the bookshelves.  I will order probably four more bookshelves to fill out the space and maybe have one bookshelf in the guest bedroom.
Most of the house is the same color of yellow.   It looks totally different in the rooms because of the lighting. 

I am so excited that this actually coming together.  The floors are original hardwood floors that were put in when the house was built (1950s).

I'm not sure where my laptop is -- hopefully I'll find it so I can visit.  (Writing this post somewhere where I shouldn't.....)  As always, I will do my best to visit those that visit me (please leave your number) and those that end in the same number as me.  It probably won't be until the weekend before I get around.
