For Sale on Feb 25th

Well, we've been working on our Honeymoon Cottage...aka...Beagle Run Cottage for 6 months solid to get her market ready.  3 of those months were during the Holidays and with us living at Beagle Run Way.  Wow, it has been quite the job to join my Hubby in his dream and vision for our family!!  Almost more than I could bear up under.  We have expanded our Faith...gotten our feathers ruffled but kept smiling...finished all our dream projects for this home.  We were there for 17 years so I'm really attached!!

This is the new roof, painted trimwork, new columns, shutters and black landscape mulch my Real Estate Agent asked us to put out.  None of it has been any small feat.

We have felt that we need to get our best foot forward.  The scripture about doing unto the Lord to give your best comes to mind.  It is in God's hands now.  We had a box of wood laminate flooring left over so we used it to make the stair landing sing. :)  I can't get started about how much it took to do all the trim painting the way we always intended it to be.   The entire upstairs got new carpeting.

Our son's dinosaur room is looking so good!  That volcano and Triceratops might look un-assuming but we had to call our dear friend back out that painted it all in 2004 to fix that area where the 3 palm trees are.  We had a speaker box removed from every bedroom and had to patch and paint to look like nothing ever happened.  She did an amazing job!

This was my craft room and it is staged and ready for showings and an open house on Sunday.  We have a set of wingback chairs near the front window there and this piece Hubby got me that is staged and looking pretty...not full of all my junk. lol

Blogging Buddy Love to any who will join us in our Faith and prayer for the Lord's blessing on our effort!!  My birthday was Friday, February 25th and I've felt we should have her on the market that day and I'm calling for it to blow a young family away and it will be sold by March 15th....20 day turn-around..against all odds.  Today is our open house and she is shining like a diamond!!

Well, that is how we have been using our Texas Sunshine. 
Happy Seasonal Sunday, let's go see what else is going on in other blog spots.
