Settling In

 Well, we made it through the first leg of our moving marathon and have finally found all the power cords to get back up-and-running. Before we did anything else, we set up the kitty tower and Franny and Lou are pretty happy with their new view. They've settled in just fine and are on "chipmunk watch" every day.
As we were gathering the few remaining belongings from our house before closing the door behind us for the last time, i snapped a picture of this sweet wall hanging that was there when we moved in. We left it for the new owner who will surely make it a happy home of her own. (Click on the image to make it bigger and easier to read)

  1. Hooray for getting unpacked and making your house homey! I bet your kiddos are having a great time exploring. :)

  2. Wow, that cat tower is amazing - I'd best not show Archie, he just has a bed on the floor *wink*

  3. Those look like two happy cats! Glad you're getting settled in.....

  4. I am glad that you are in your new home. I am sure the kitties are too!! It was so sweet of you to leave the wall hanging!!!

  5. We are so far behind in reading. My goodness you have already moved and we did not even realize you were moving. The kitties look very content in their new home:) Hope you are able to get settled in quickly and back to your drawing board:)

  6. I'm so happy to see that Franny and Lou are enjoying their new "big screen TV" and chipmunk shows are always fun.

  7. I love Franny & Lou's apartment. My kitties would not share as nicely. Hope you get settled soon. Take care.

  8. Glad to see you are starting to settle in. And of course, isn't the kitty tower always most important?

    I love that Happy Home Recipe and that you left it for the new owner. Did you leave them a nice little note too? Those are always fun for a new owner to find.

    Good luck getting everything into its new place.

  9. The holiday stocking looks so so cute. Looks like fun projects for the holidays in the Sew Merry book.
