one of the last posts from this house

May is my favourite month. It feels like the summer and its warm weather are stretching out indefinitely before us, many of my favourite flowers and trees are in bloom, and the daylight hours are so long. Flowering cherry trees are the highlight of the month for me - they're so delicate and ruffly, pretty and fleeting.

We're going to start packing up this house over the next month or so, and we'll be moving to our new old forever home. I can't wait, but I will miss lots of things about this house. (It's for sale, and we just lowered the price, if you're interested!) This giant cherry tree is definitely one of the things I'll miss, along with the tulips, quince, woodland hyacinths, and the big willow tree. It's the house we brought our baby boys home to - it's always going to be a special place to me.


  1. Have a good time moving house, Sherrie! I look forward to reading how you're settling into your new home :)

  2. Hi Sherrie, I just took a tour of your new old house renovation on your instagram. Fantastic. I love seeing the process of a wonderful project developing and you have so much accomplished already. We are working on an old place ourselves but we are not as far along as you. a storey and a half, balloon framed. gutted, much to fix, but as you, we find the project and the anticipation of living there very exciting. Thrilling actually! I don't have it documented on my blog yet but it will come when we make more progress.
    Congratulations on your ability to see a diamond in the rough.
    ps. The home you are selling is a jewel..

    1. Thanks, Gwen! I would love to see your place when you have it posted - it sounds similar to this house. :) I think of you whenever I see your jewelry in a shop! Hope you're well. :)

  3. What a wonderful adventure you will have in your new home! We, your readers, will also miss photos from your old home (and that lovely street name).
