Feels like Fall today

We are having a cold and rainy day today here in Colorado.  Here are a couple of pictures from my deck today.  You can't see much of the foothills because of the fog.

Projects in the new home and new blog name

I thought I would share some pictures of my projects in our new home.  I am still unpacking and trying to figure out where to put stuff.    I decided to change my blog name just a bit as the neighborhood we moved to is called The North Ranch.  I love the sign they have here when you enter the area.

This is what we get in our yard a lot.

Here is my first project, the laundry room.  I will be painting the cabinets plus installing a new sink, counter top and light. This room is much smaller than my last one.

The reason for the white above the cabinets is the previous owners raised the cabinets and we lowered them so I can reach the bottom shelf.

I have a lot of painting to do but it will have to wait until after we move in.  My goal was to get the master bedroom, laundry room and my hubby's office painted before we move in but I just didn't have the time.

The dining room is the next room to be painted.  I will also be changing out the curtains down the road.  For now they have been taken down.  I will re-cover the cornice board and add new panels.

Fall front door

I come home in the afternoon to let my dog out so I thought I would take a little time to decorate.  Ok I know that I should be working on the inside of the house but I am about to burst if I don't get some kind of Fall decor going on the front porch.  Since I don't have much time I concentrated on the front door area only.

I made the topiaries myself with faux pumpkins from Hobby Lobby and I got the urns at Home Depot.  They were white so I painted them black.  The wreath is from Goodwill and it originally had green apples and berries.  They are still there underneath the fall picks and bow that I added.

Well that was all I could get done today.  If I didn't need to get back to work I would have added some of my faux pumpkins and mums.   Maybe another day.

Moving is hectic

We moved into our new home this past weekend.  I normally wouldn't share these pictures with anyone but am I the only one that has this mess when moving?

I couldn't bring myself to show anymore rooms that are a mess (which is about every room).    This is the formal living room area which I don't know what I am going to put in here yet so it is now the catch all room.  It will be awhile before I will posting again.  I am hoping to most of this done (except the basement) within a few weeks if all goes well.
