Giveaway And Apology

by Sherry

First,  I owe those of you that joined my Open House party or left comments a big apology!   I have been swamped this week and I have not had time to respond to your comments.  Please forgive me and I will try to do better next week.

Our son flew here from Orlando to pack up his home and finish the move to Florida.   Hubby and I went to help him pack.  The three of us packed a 7000 square foot house in two days!!  The third day was spent cleaning the house and garage and getting some things ready to go to auction.   Every muscle in my body aches but I made him promise to remember this when it’s time for me to go to a assisted living home.  I expect one with a pool, tennis courts, room service…first class all the way!

I have also been busy opening my new Etsy shop and  I should have quite a few more items posted next week.  Please stop by and take a look.

If you haven’t enter my Bella Inspirations giveaway for a fabulous vintage style runner you can still enter HERE.


Thank you for visiting.

Sherry that is a gorgeous home!

I bet you're tired!! I cannot imagine packing up that big a house in such a short time! We had movers pack up our last house and it wasn't anywhere close to 7000 square feet. It still took a lot of them over 2 days! (Yes, we have a lot of stuff!) haha.

Happy Mother's Day!

Forgiven! You sure never need to apologize to me! I'm in awe of all you intrepid hostesses out there! When it's time to retire just move into that fabulous HOUSE your son lives in! Happy Mom's Day!

No wonder you haven't had time for responding to blog comments! That is one impressive home you helped pack up. I know it was hard for your son and daughter to leave it. Good luck with your Etsy Shop! I have lots of fun with mine and know you will too. I'm off now to visit it!

Hi Sherry!
Such a beautiful home! I love the exterior and the interior has so much charm, so many great detail in the moldings and windows and LOVE the kitchen!
Happy Mother's Day!

Never a need to apologize. Life takes us all away, more often than not. LOL

What a gorgeous home. Is this the new one? Beautiful interiors!

Happy Mother's Day to you. ~ Sarah

Hi Sherry,
You do not need to apologize. We all get busy at times and can't get around to seeing everyone. We bloggers understand each other.

Your son and his wife have a lovely home. They are quite a handsome couple too.

hugs and Happy Mother's Day.

Hi Sherry,
Beautiful home, inside and out. I hope we get to see pics of the one they are moving in to.

Well, Sherry! What did you do in all your spare time though?;>) I'd say when you go to "the home" you should get an in-ground swimming pool IN your room!!

Where did the kids move to? I'll be tthey hated giving up their gorgeous home! But how wonderful that they had to call their own while in Orlando!

Get some rest…you deserve it! xxoo Diana

I don't think you ever need to apologize to those of us out here in blogland. As much as we all love blogging, we all (or at least most) have a life beyond the computer. It sounds like you have way more on your plate than any one normal woman should have, so just hang in there. We will welcome you back with open-arms whenever you are ready. Good luck on everything.

Wowzers Sherry! That's quite a house. I love the style of decorating too – absolute perfection. I got lots of inspiration.

Whoa, big house to pack you must be given a medal for that one, so pretty too! Glad I popped in from Kims, love your blog

Erin May 12, 2011 - 12:29 pm

That is a gorgeous house Sherry! And no need to fret, you are only human and there are other priorities in life:)

Now that was a huge undertaking. I'm sure the help was apprecitated.
