Nadiah Alwi

Oh, what a beautiful house...
So happy for you :D


It's going to be just gorgeous . . . . I bet you can hardly wait@


I have to ask, did you all build the desk that is in that first photo? I so want something like that for my craft room! Please share the details with me!


You're ahhhhlive!!! I was starting to get worried, but I know you're been really busy. I'm getting SO excited for you -- it all looks so pretty -- I can't wait to see the finished rooms -- especially that sewing room, which is looking just fantastic! And of course, I'm drooling over your pretty new shingles too LOL!


What an absolutely gorgeous home Karen! Thanks for the little tour - I can just imagine how excited you are to move in.

First of all, please do not forget how to do a post!! If you need help, e-mail me!!;-)

As usual, these peeks at your new home are fabulous! I love the red island!

I dread the day we put our house on the market! That picking up and cleaning up can't be fun!!


Oh YIPPEEE you're in today...I came by yesterday to check on you, didn't want to bother you cuz I know it's a BUSY time for you !! Things look great Karen...

All the best,
Kathy :)


You must be over the moon excited! I don't blame you for not wanting to mess anything up. When we sold one of our houses, I used some kind of product on the door knob of the front door that kept tarnishing within a day or so. I had to run home from work at lunch time and polish the door knob in case a realtor stopped by!
Your new front porch makes me green with envy! Even more than the fantastic sewing room!

Kris Grover

It all looks wonderful! I am especially fond of that red island! I love, love, love red! And your new sewing room looks divine!


Love the red island! All those big windows at the back of the house are just awesome. Your yellow farmhouse is incredible.
I agree that who ever buys your
farmhouse will have a very lovely
home! This is a great time of the
year to sell a house.
Hubby and I have been living in our
dream house for 10 years and we
could not be happier!

Hi Karen! I have been released from the hospital and back home. I am tired but so glad to be home. I was not allowed to sew while in the hospital and boy did I suffer withdraw. I loved your old sewing room and cannot even believe the new one. Hey! I thought you were supposed to be downsizing? The house is just gorgeous. I love the colors you choose for outside as well as the to die for wrap around porch. I really miss porches in Holland. Of course, I think I could fit my house in your garage...lol!

Hugs ~


I am ready to move in there with you after seeing all those nice photos! I think your sewing studio will be big enough for two!


Oh, Karen, everything is looking so amazing! I bet you can't hardly wait. I am looking forward to more and more pictures!

Have a great day, Denise

Very nice. Thanks for the tour. I love the pop of red for the island with the white cabinets. But then red & white are favorites of mine.
Have fun packing!
