What's new


   This weekend we rambled through northwest Arkansas and into southwest Missouri to visit my husband's family. It's so pretty this time of year in the Ozarks, with everything greening up and turning into spring!
   On our way home we stopped at Perennials, Etc. in Arkansas and I was so inspired by all the beautiful gardens and statuary! I can't wait to start planting! I'm so excited about hostas and hydrangeas and hellibores....oh my! ;)


   And speaking of fun things for when we move, I got one awesome thing early--- this beautiful cream colored bike! It came shipped to us in pieces and Will and I put it together in the living room last night. We actually worked well as a team! I guess that's what nearly 10 years together will do for you! 
   It was nearly dark when we got it completed and I was a bit wobbly on my first go on it. It's been a long time since I've been on a bike! But I'm scheming to add a basket to the front and a crate on the back so that I can go to the post office and the grocery store and on other errands with my bike and not have to use my car. I'm excited about the prospect!

  Of course now, just about 3 weeks til we close on the new house, my house here is a complete wreck. I'm going to start packing up the nonessentials of my studio and then on to the nightmare of our garage ;) I'm really looking forward to getting settled and reorganized and ready to paint though. It's never too early to start on Christmas art, you know! ;)

  Hope you have a good week!~

  1. What a cool bike!! Your idea of getting it outfitted for errand running is a really good idea. You can get great exercise as well as save on gas during the months of good weather. The next 3 weeks are going to fly by. I don't envy you having to pack up the house!! It is a great time , however, to cull out stuff to take to the thrift store!!

    1. Yes, packing the house is really no fun. It's a cluttered mess and i feel like my mind is a cluttered mess because of it! Cant wait to be settled again, and peddling through town! Most of all, I just feel so blessed that we're able to do this at all. I'm trying to be grateful and just take life as it comes!

  3. What a fabulous bike! You definitely need a floral basket for it. I can just picture you riding through town. I know you must be so excited about the move. What fun you will have decorating your new home and making it "Audrey Eclectic" style!

  4. I'm jealous of your bike! Takes me back to summer days when I was young and would ride across town on my bicycle to my best friend's house. Too bad we don't live closer - I'd love to go for a bike ride with you (or just run errands!) FUN. :)

  5. What a beautiful garden store - tis the season to dream about flowers for sure! I love your new bike, too, Heather. It will feel so nice to run errands with a cute basket in tow. Although the moving part is not fun, it will be so exciting for you to settle in your new homestead. I can't wait to see what you do with it!
