Liberate Your Art!

What a great year at Liberate Your Art!
The postcards kept my mailbox happy week after week! 
Here are the wonders I received....

The first card is from Andrea. What a lovely scene!

I love this one with the chairs! I am not sure of the name of the artist---I hope to find out through the blog hop! It's amazing!

This sweet honey bear is from another artist I hope to find! Isn't he great! 

Hey--- I know the amazing talent who did this---my friend, JoAnna from Fiddlesnips! She is lovely, Jo!

This one is of the benches at the pentagon Memorial by Karen Walker. Such interesting lines--Amazing!!

Last, but not least, our fearless leader's card! Kat, this is great! I love it!

Thank you, Everyone for all the amazing art! I also had a great time checking out cards people received on the facebook event, and look forward to blog hopping this weekend to see more!

ps. If you received one of mine, I'd love to hear from you. :0)

The Dream Home!

Here it is! 
It was built in 1922 by a company that provided most of the brick for Franklin's downtown buildings. The last of the bricks were used to build this house. It has had some changes over the years. The kitchen was made bigger by converting what was the "morning room", and the back porch was turned into an enclosed sunroom ( my favorite room!). What was a garage in the 1950s is now going to be the "music room" for us.

It is just 7 blocks from downtown Franklin. We'll be able to walk to the farmers market, shops, restaurants and bars, and coffee shops. We'll also be able to walk to the grocery store and Post Office ( handy for me!).

( By the way, all the pictures have the current owners stuff. We don't move in until June!)

 I love the backyard. It even has a koi pond with fish in there! You can't tell from the pictures but it's a big lot. There will be plenty of room for gardening.

 The sunroom! I love the white painted brick in here.

 The formal living room. There is a working fireplace here. The family room has one that's filled in.

All the upstairs bedrooms have transoms. I love all the little details.

An old switch they left for decoration in the living room

One of the 2 stained glass.

Remodeled bathroom. I love the all white! 

This upstairs window is where my studio will be! I'm taking the biggest room! Besides, another bedroom has a walk in closet! There is a surprising amount of storage and closet space for a house this old.

We are excited to get moved in! 

It has been a whirlwind of appointments, packing, cleaning, and stuff. Also, I'm feeling hopeful about a job. I'm hoping to have it all put together by July and I can relax.
