ATTN---Follow Me At My New Site ---Suddenly Southern

Hello dear readers and friends....
This is a note to let you know I am no longer adding content to this site.
We sold our farmhouse a little over a month ago and have moved to Alabama.
With this move comes a new home and garden.
I wanted to start fresh and leave Creative Country Mom as it was.
So will you please join me at Suddenly Southern...

Thanks so much for following Creative Country Mom for so many years.
I am excited to begin this next chapter and it won't be the same without you!

The House is Ready To Show.... Probably the Last Home Tour

Welcome back to Creative Country Mom's!
Yes, it has been awhile since I have shared an update.
Hubby's transfer is all set up now... he will start work in early October.
We have rented a townhouse apartment in Huntsville 
and take possession on the 29th of this month.
This will just be a place to call home base until our home sells and we can buy a new home.
We have a favorite, and pray it all comes together and we can make an offer soon.

This week we signed the paperwork to list our home on the lake.
So today I will share a whole first floor tour with you....

My hubby is expecting to hear his start date later today.
I am excited and anxious and a thousand different emotions....
So I will share more pics of the house with you....
 These will the some of the photos I will use for the listing.
I have to get them down to about 20-30 for the sites.
That is hard for me!

New Light and Bright Cottage Style Wall Hutch

Hello and welcome back to Creative Country Mom's!
If you have seen me this week... I have probably had a paint brush in my hand.
I have been repairing walls and touching up trim all over the house.
No, still no news about moving.
I am hoping we hear something today and get a few things done over the weekend.
 Here is my little hutch before.
I actually loved this green for a long time.
I just thought moving forward I wanted to lighten it up a bit more.
 So here it is now, a soft cottage cream.

A Very Vintage Style Living Room

 Hello again and welcome back to Creative Country Moms!
I am so glad you stopped by today!!
No, I do not... errrrr.... no news to share yet.
Dang it, I sure hope it is soon!

We are still waiting to hear if my sweet hubby is going to be transferred to Huntsville, AL.
I have been preparing as best as I can for the possible sale of our home.
So before I tear everything apart I will be sharing each room of the house.
 Today we are enjoying our eclectic vintage style family room.
I have wanted to redo this room for quite a while, but it somehow ends up unchanged.
I think it is the homey feel and the soft colors in here.
It is a comfortable room to set in.

Cleaner, Brighter Cottage Kitchen Redo

 Welcome back to Creative Country Mom's!
No news yet... but still thinking we will be relocating to Alabama.
So here is a kitchen update since I moved the pie safe and side table out.
 I removed everything from the area above the window and the back of the cabinets.

Simplify~~~ A Little Less Might Be More...

Welcome back to Creative Country Mom's!
No, we do not have any big news to share.
But yes, I am still hoping we will be moving to Huntsville, AL.
So what am I doing.... I am simplifying my decor.
Yesterday was kind of a hard day for me.
I packed up four totes of vintage goodies, lace, trinkets and whatnots.
I am not selling them, or donating them.
I am just decluttering.

Let me just say, I am not a minimalist!
I tell friends to display what you love...
Have it where you can enjoy it!

But there is a fine line between...
"This lady likes to decorate..."
"This lady may be nuts!"
