We're painting, spackling, cleaning, sweating, laughing & crying...
we're almost ready to start moving boxes into Jo's new little house!!!

In the pictures above, you can see the pretty greens they picked out for their bedrooms...peaceful & serene.
the stairs need to be repainted, whoever painted the walls before us must have used a spray can 'cause they got paint all over the stairs, but we'll be repainting them, too.

there were two fridges left in the house, only one works, so we have to get the other out...
I now have muscles where I shouldn't....LOL!

and, you can see Jo in her little hat, Emily in the middle and Josh next to Em...on their cute little front porch...

I'm going over today to finish painting, hang blinds & curtains and scrub floors...
this aft we'll start on the boxes!
Jo's truck decided to konk out on her monday...so it's in the shop now..
...When it rains it pours I guess, but everything always works out for the best, no?
I'll be calling the mechanic in a little bit to find out what the $$ damage is...*sigh*
we're in need of area rugs, & a used (or new?) washer & dryer
if you know of anyone willing to donate?
Thanks for all of the emails of support & encouragement, and for the monetary 'gifts' for Jo...
she can't believe the outpouring of help we've been receiving from you all...
I told her that my Dearest Treasures are my Friends...
and you've proved again & again that is true.

Our love to you all, and I'll be taking 'after' pictures of Jo's little house soon!!!!

Blessed be everyone~

It really looks like the house is coming together! It will be so nice to have your sister close. Glad it is all working out.

It looks like that little house must have good bones. I love the stairway, the moldings around the windows, and the clapboard walls. I just love painting walls... oh, how I wish I could help out!

I love old houses, sometimes this one seems like a total wreck but I do love it. I love the wood walls!The green color is so pleasant and peaceful. Some of these rooms had that but it's been coverd over in most of them and I plan to uncover it bit by bit. I know you will enjoy that porch; there is just nothing like a porch in the summer. I'm so glad things are working out for Joe and her family. This looks like a happy home. You are such a good sister. If I lived near I would be right there helping. Moving is a chore but you guys are so talented and I can tell already that you are going to fill this place with love.
