Boxes and boxes and boxes.... :)

It's on.
Whyyyyy didn't I plan better???
Like sell my house in December??
It's honestly hotter that Hades here.
I sweat just looking at what has to go in these boxes....

Like SOMEBODY'S topiary hoard.
Honestly Dorie. How many topiaries do  you need?
All of them.

So quit yer complainin' and git 'em in that box!

It's about this time in every move where discouragement always 
sets in with me. I can't see the end of all the endless packing,
and I just want to cry:(

And then I say to myself,
Suck it up buttercup!
Remember where you're going....????

Ohhhh yeeeeah!!! That dreamy little town called Carpinteria:)
And then I'm all better.... :)

Hope to see you all this weekend where I'll be 
selling the stuff that doesn't make it into
those boxes.... 
Saturday 7am-10am


  1. So excited for your new adventure!!

  2. I am so sorry you are having to work on the boxes for moving! You must be a pro by now! Since I have been reading your blog you have moved 3 times! All the best as you move to a cute little town! I happen to love the cute little town I live in! Coastal Florida is my true love for a place to live!

  3. I could help! :) I would just buy everything, and you wouldn't have to pack, especially those topiaries. So I sense that they wont be up for sale Saturday. Could you tell me if your kitchen curtains will be. Thanks, I can't wait! Since your open house I have painted my living room, and repainted it, and my kitchen, hallway, and working on the guest bathroom! You've inspired me and I'm hoping to have a little Dorie in my home. :)

  4. that looks like a great place for a fresh start!!!!! Taking debit cards again at this sale????

  5. Oh, I feel your pain. I HATE packing. I don't even like to pack for a vacation! But, you have a lot of experience doing it, so I bet you have a system in place. I will have to ask you for advice the next time we move (which won't be any time soon). Can't wait to follow you to your new town.

  6. Where did you buy your topiaries?

    1. I bought most all of them at FOUND:)

    2. Oh. :( thanks. I do love them. :) Happy packing.

  7. Welcome to California! You will love Carp, and then there is Santa Barbara right next door. We'll be neighbors!

  8. Are you going to be selling any of your cow prints? Also, where did you get the cute trees on your front steps?

    1. Hi Megan!
      Yes, I'm thinking of letting go of some of my cows:(
      the trees on the front steps are from Home Depot, but I have no idea what kind the are?? Sorry:(

  9. Dorie....please send me your address, I think I am about 3 minutes from you!

  10. You'll love Carp! It's kinda cold there in the summer. :). Something to look forward to. Mimi

  11. Hi Dorie. Could I get your address for Saturday? Txbriarrose@yahoo.com

  12. I love Carpinteria - hope you are moving to the ocean side of the freeway where are the cute little cottages are. Or maybe you will be living on Padaro Lane. Then I would be truly jealous!

  13. Hi Dorie, It has been too long since we have heard from you-I hope all is well and you are enjoying your new town! Any chance you will post a short update soon? It would be great to see where you landed! Wishing you all the best as you settle in to your new home. Thanks!
