Because our home is for sale I haven’t been able to make any major changes around here.
There is nothing like being in the middle of a big project and getting a call that you have
a showing in one hour.
In other words…I am bored!
To help with the boredom I have been moving furniture around and doing some small
The French style buffet in the dining room now resides in the living room.
The urn is filled with twenty marble eggs that were found at a thrift store along
with the alabaster grapes.
The paper whites were planted before Thanksgiving and they are just now starting to bloom!
Whats up with that?
View from dining room.
The clock was also moved to the living room….
Now the antique Normandy armoire has a new home in the dining room. My
plan is to add shelving inside the two large doors to display more transferware.
Hubby hates it when I get bored because he knows there will be work involved!

Your home is just beautiful … and so clean! Isn't it amazing how just moving a few things around can make a room look so different?
I am bored too~I will come over and help some more!! I love that clock and armoire Sherry~
I have been shifting furniture around, too, getting ready to make over my family room. I love how a piece makes a new home in a different room and changes the entire look. I really love your armoire and your paper whites are so tall! I am so surprised as well that they just bloomed. They go downhill so fast after that though, so I enjoy how they look before they bloom, too!
Stay busy…and warm!
I love your house. I am so dreading putting our house on the market this Spring…really dreading all the work and keeping it "perfect" for showings. I hope yours sells soon~
You do a good job of displaying and staging and fluffing- xo Diana
Somehow I didn't remember that you were trying to sell your house, too. I feel your pain! I keep thinking of all the things I would *like* to do to this house, and then I have to remind myself that I simply can't. Your home is ALREADY gorgeous, though!
it is all looking gorgeous!
Love the changes. You have some great furniture pieces. I love that clock.
That's too funny! Good luck with your house showing. That's a good sign though. This is usually a slow time of year for house sales.
The changes and moves you have made are all just wonderful. You have so many lovely furniture pieces and accessories to "play" with.
Have a wonderful weekend!
You have a beautiful home. I hope it sells soon. Florida sounds like the perfect place to move.
Thanks to sharing a nice picture of new look of furniture. Beautiful room furniture is all about laid-back comfort. Usually in natural or light-colored wood, this no-nonsense style for the family and a no frills sensibility.
Living Room Furniture
Sherry I love love love that clock and your armoire looks beautiful in your dining room! Would love to see more of your pretty living room!
Your home is so beautiful that I'm surprised it hasn't sold already.
Of course the economy isn't helping any.
We are putting ours back on the market this spring and will try again.
Best of luck.
I know this feeling well, Sherry! It was hard to try and appease that boredom with small projects, but I found they gave me an outlet. Great clock and I love your sideboard!
How much fun to move things around and have them fit the space and give you a new, fresh look! Lucky person/s who buys your house. It's gorgeous.
Saying a prayer that your house sells soon.
Have a great weekend,
What a gorgeous home! Love that piece of furniture!
It looks fabulous! I love everything. Wish we were closer I could satisfy your boredom moving things around at my house!!!!
I have a white urn like yours and just love it.
I know what you mean, where my house is not for sale, I get calls out of the blue wanting to take a tour. I try and keep it ready. Richard from My Old Historic House.
Sherry, at least you have beautiful furniture to shop from and move around. I especially like the clock. hugs, olive
I am having the bug to move things around, too. We had our house on the market for a year and a half and finally took it off the market this November. Just tired of it! Will probably try again. It is so nice to leave the house "not quite perfect" and not worry that someone will come while you are gone. Linda p.s. Love the changes!
I'm bored too, would you come to my house and swap some of MY furniture?!!
Hi Sherry, moving things around is always fun!
Your house looks wonderfula nd I'm sure it will have a SOLD sign out front soon!
Sherry this is a perfect example of shopping your own home and seeing things from a new point of view. It is not an easy thing for most homeowners to do on their own, but you my dear have mastered this task.Love all of your changes! Happy weekend,
Our home is on the market too and it's difficult. How long has your home been for sale?
I love that white and clean look of your beautiful house. All your moves are great, they make your home look so new and fresh, I love moving around things, or artwork too. Have a nice Sunday.
Light is the key to paperwhites. Once they sprout they need to be in the brightest light you can provide.
Everything is so beautiful. I love your furniture and your style. Everything is always done to perfection. Hope you get to move to your new home soon. Hugs, Marty
Your home is looking so beautiful…I love all of your blue and white…I wouldn't be surprised if your buyer asks you to leave everything just like it is…love the idea of displaying transfer ware in that gorgeous French cabinet. Hope you are feeling well.
That sounds like a new reality show, you bring your furniture to my house and I'll bring mine to yours! You have some great furniture pieces. At least you don't eat when you're bored!
Your home is fabulous, I covet the armoire!
I love to swap furniture from room to room like you did!! It always is a lot of work but so much satisfaction with no $$ spent. I love the urn with the glass float and sea items on your table… and your floor clock is AMAZING. what a treasure!
You certainly have some beautiful things. That clock is fabulous. I wish you luck with you house sale.
All the best…Victoria
I have armoire envy. That Normandy piece is to-die for! Gorgeous home.
I was just wondering if you home was still for sale…now I know 🙂
LOVE the Normandy armoire.
Great moves!..Moving things around are a great outlet for your constant need to satisfy your beautiful creativeness.
You have a very beautiful home, Sherry!
It all looks great. I'm one to move stuff around all the time but since I started work I don't have the time to do it at home….so I do it at my store. Oh well better there than no where. It's still fun.
I love the armoire – beautiful! Good luck selling your home – it's lovely!
Sherry your home is so so beautiful!! I love what a difference just moving our special pieces about makes!

Your home is so pretty…I'm sure it will sell soon. Good luck.
I love the clock…if you don't have room for it in your new house let me know. 🙂
Sherry, I love the changes! Your home always looks gorgeous, and I'm sure it will sell in no time … you'll be decorating your new "abode" before you know it!
So pretty! I don't know why your home hasn't sold already. I'm about to be in the same boat. Such a pain to keep everything show ready.
Love all your inspiration for your new home. I'm a huge fan of blue of course!
Oh it is gorgeous! I can't believe it has not sold yet. My house is so small I have tried, but there is no way to rearrange and I am bored stiff! Maybe you could visit your son when the Fancy Flea is on!
Hey Sherry, I have some furniture sliders I just bought. Shall I bring them with me on Wednesday? 🙂 When you finish at your house you are so welcome to come to mine to help switch things around. 🙂 xo
What a great buffet! I'm a new blogger and now a new follower!
Love it Sherry..that clock is to just die 4 girl..beautiful as everything you do my dear friend..Hope you have the BEST Tuesday ever girl..Hugs and smiles Gloria
Beautiful home! Thanks for sharing your great style.JoAnn
Your home is gorgeous! Everything looks lovely! Great changes!
My friend, your home is looking gorgeous as usual! I love all the changes that you've made. Love the beautiful vignette with the urn and marble eggs and grapes…sooo pretty! Ohh my…the french armoire that you placed in the dining room is "frenchy fabulous"!!! I also love that beautiful clock! You have so many pretty things, dear friend…thanks for sharing them with us!
Your decor and photos are truly evolving!! You have a lovely French inspired home.
Gorgeous spaces, Sherry! Love the changes.
Little changes can make a world of difference and make us feel better, too!! Your home always looks wonderful. best of luck on the house sale.
Everything looks so clean and fresh. The perfect look to be selling. The top of your buffet looks great too. Hope you sell soon so you can relax and make a mess!
Sherry, thanks so much for joining TTT. YOur vignettes are always so beautiful and I love this one with the lovely blue and white. Love the marble fruit. Hugs, Marty
All so pretty staging. I especially like the marble eggs and urn.
Maybe the paper white blooms are waiting until the future homeowner comes to view your home. Best wishes in selling.
Love your changes. I didn't know you were changing homes. I just got done with that. Now, we're living in chaos and slowly but surely getting organized in our new house.
Cannot wait to see all the projects you will come up with in your new home.

Sherry, that was too funny, but it looks gorgeous!! Love the French armoire in the dining room and that clock is amazing. We are moving but not for two years. I am so itching for a new house, since we have been here for 22 years. But I have to wait until the baby graduates from high school. wait, wait, wait……
Love the changes Sherry! You have such fabulous pieces in your home. I can relate with you on the waiting and moving. It is NOT fun. I am praying we get to stay put here. If not there are so many projects to get done before June.
Our husband's must be related b/c my husband hates hearing me say, "I've been thinking". ;O) Your home is gorgeous. You should have no problems selling it.
Sherry love the changes you've made. I'm getting a good look at the armoire, I think we have similar pieces. I really love the vignette with the white urn and white eggs. Fabulous!
The French Hutch
First of all… I have always loved that clock. Your home is so beautiful yet very comfortable looking. I love how you are able to use classic pieces yet keep a since of casual living.

Everything looks so fabulous. You have so many gorgeous decorative pieces and I love your sideboard, it is beautiful. I am now a follower of your blog and look forward to return visits. I invite you to join me as well on my blog at http://atastefultouch.blogspot.com
I have several projects – you can come and be bored with me here! I was wondering if you moved those things yourself – I have 'found a way' when I move things around – but I gathered you had your Dear Husband's help 🙂
It is fun to change things around and they look great! Thank you for sharing with Home and Garden Thursday!
I hear you on shifting furniture around- your house looks wonderful! I love your beautiful pieces- gorgeous. Thanks for linking up!
Love these glimpses of your home….maybe it is a good thing that things are in order…instead of always in a state of being changed like mine!!!
