OUR OFFER ON THE APPALACHIAN FARMLET WAS ACCEPTED!
Can you feel my excitement?
Soon the antiquated barn with ‘good bones‘ will be fixed and those horse shoes on the wall will be the first and easiest thing done…
I will have to nail them all facing up so all the good luck doesn’t run out. 😉
And I simply must make friends with the pygmy pony too. I think I will grow carrots just for him!

Smiles are surely ricocheting through your WordPress world! Hip-hip Hooray!!!! I love that barn, and little pony had best prepare to be the next WP star!
Congratulations! You will soon be writing from your new perch!
Now you’ll have trouble sleeping because your mind will be spinning with creative ideas!
Lisa, you know me so well…
Bask in your happiness. You’ve earned it! Z
Thank you, Lisa! I just hope I don’t look like this at three AM
When I am supposed to be sleeping! LOL!
ha! it’s three a.m and i suspect you’re sleeping! we’ve had heavy rains, and i painted then switched to online work.. no one else is using the service in town, so my speed is much faster during these hours!
i’m about to ‘turn in’ and hope that you rested well!
Looking forward to posts & photos from your new place of residence.
Argh! My comment spontaneously combusted!
Thank you, Victoria! 🙂
Thank you, Dianna! We are so excited!
I love the barn, can’t wait to see what you do with it. 🙂
It hasn’t really sunk in yet, but I am excited at the prospect of restoring it and then staining it back to its original red. I didn’t even realize it had ever been red till I started working on the photo. Looking up under the eaves, well, there it is. Red!
Lynda, that really has made my day! Deep breaths now. Lots to do but it seems you have time on your side.
Yes! Thank you, Annie, we do! The current owner needs time to empty the house of all of it’s contents… and trust me, the little house is jam packed! So, the closing won’t happen until April the 2nd. 😉
congratulations and cant wait for the updates!
Thank you, Connie, and neither can I! LOL! 😀
Hooray!! So happy for you!
Penny, thank you so much!
dowill have a guest bedroom. (hint-hint) 😉
YaHOO! CONGRATULATIONS LYNDA AND BOB!!!
I had a funny feeling in the pit of my stomach when I first “looked” out over the valley with you… Just KNEW that this was going to happen… “Whoop, whoop!” (Can you see me jumping with joy for you?:D
Oh my God, this is just wonderful!
BTW, it should be pretty easy to imagine a serene vista… You’re drifting to sleep on the hint of a breeze, listening to the buzz of the cicadas; while sprawled on the cool ground, in the dappled shade under one of those lovely old (maple?) trees this summer…
Oh! But first – although those feathery boards can wait for a bit longer, you’d better get a couple of nails into that loose piece of roofing on the (nearest?) corner of the shed (before some errant gust of wind gets under it; ) Gotta protect your investment (NOW THAT IT’S YOURS!!!! *squeals of joy*) Oh, wait, got an old movie clip running through my head… Click your heels together three times and repeat after me: “There’s no place like home…”
Deb, you are so sweet. Thank you for believing this would happen. 🙂
Yay! Looking forward to your process of moving to your new home!
Thank you, and Meeee too, Patti!
Oh my goodness. So happy for you! There’s gonna be so much room for everyone. I wonder if the feather kids can feel your excitement?
You know, Anita, I am certain that Buddy was feeling it. He ran donuts around the back yard when Bob got home tonight. He never has done that before!
YAAAY, so glad for you!!
Thank you! We appreciate it!
Oh thank goodness, now I can type with fingers uncrossed.. i am thrilled and really that barn is beautiful.. and I am so so glad that it is you getting to live your dream, you truly deserve it! wonderful wonderful news! c
I must admit, I was more worried about you walking on your crossed toes! 😉
Thank you, Celi, I’m so glad that you can see the beauty in a 70 year old barn. I am already working on a plan to fix it… Starting from the roof down. Once I get it cleaned out, making sure there are no rats in it, I intend to spend a night in the hayloft! If I like it, I may just rig up a permanent hammock and mosquito netting! 😀
Oh this is SO EXCITING! Fantastic news. Lynda – I am so happy for you guys!
Walking on air… ‘-)
Thank you, Julie!
Thank you for the cheers, Chris!
Congratulations! No one likes to move (at least no one I know does) but I’d say the excitement if where you’re going makes it well worth the effort. I’m looking forward to reading all about it.
This is such a great news Lynda, I told you it will be OK!!! I kind feel your excitement and I am very happy for you.
Congratulations, how exciting! A new adventure. 🙂
Congratulations! I’m very happy for you and can’t wait to see how you turn the new Farmlet into your home.
It was meant to be…..
I am so happy for you!
I just can’t tell you how happy I am for you. I was glad to see that April 2 date – that’s reasonable, and there’s clearly plenty for you to do between now and then. 😉
Have you ever seen any of the quilt barns? There’s a tradition around the country of women putting huge painted quilt patterns on the end of their barns. Jus’ sayin! Do a google image search for quilt barn and you’ll have enough to keep you drooling for a while!
