Unpacking and Planning for Spring

Thursday, October 18, 2012

Well, chickadees, I'm getting the rest of my moving done this weekend and since I don't have to work till Tuesday, I'm unpacking, hanging my clothes, getting situated in the new place. I just started hanging my clothes (which are currently in trash bags for easy moving) and I think if I did it non-stop with no sleep, it would take me a week to complete! I'm really excited about my new, sturdy closets and new storage/display possibilities for everything. My sister is coming tomorrow to help unpack and hang clothes and I am so thankful for her help!!

In other news, do you think it's too early for garden planning? With the amount of produce that my children consume in a week, I think growing our own really is the only way to do it. I started a Pinterest board today with some really awesome garden ideas. Victory Garden, anyone?


While I'm away, I thought I'd leave you with a few recently found blog reads that I have been enjoying a lot lately.

Lady Audley's Secrets
Evie's Tea Room

Sew a Little Love
Just Peachy, Darling

Have a lovely weekend, everyone!

  2. So excited for you. You are going to love having a garden!!!! You've got to start planning on your own little Cantina too, now that you have a basement.

  3. Ooo, thanks for the links! I haven't seen most of those. I'm excited to see your garden... I grew up in a house with a huge (and well-organized!) garden, and I miss it now that I live in a tiny apartment. It is most definitely NOT too early to start planning... if you order seed from a catalog this is probably the time to start picking things out. Once you figure out the shape of your garden and your beds (do you have driplines, or will you water by hand?) you ought to get a notebook for your gardening (or I suppose you could do it by computer) and map out where you planted everything this year. That way you can rotate your crops next year to avoid exhausting the soil, and you won't forget what you've done in years past.

  5. It's never too soon to start planning, if you ask me. I'm not a gardener (don't have a garden) myself, but I know that my paternal grandparents (who are amazing gardeners) always start planning for next spring during the (previous) summer. Everything you create is always gorgeous, so I bet your garden will be fantastic, too.

  8. Hi Brittany! There is nothing nicer than moving into a new home and feathering your nest! I loved the pictures you already shared, and I just love, love, love your new home! I think you are going to have so much fun playing house! The green chair was an amzing find too! Can't wait to see more of what you get up to. I wish you and your kidlets all the very best in your new home...may it be filled with lots of love, joy, laughter and happiness! Tania ♥

  10. What a fabulous moving image!! I may just have to steal that! ;) Good luck with the rest of the moving process. I find that moving into a new place can either be fantastic or cause you to rip out your hair.

    Thank you so much for including my blog! I feel so very loved!

    xoxo
