SOLD and moving!

Our house has sold, it had been listed since March and we were worried that it would never happen!

We got a new agent at the end of Sept. on a Friday and an offer was signed on Sunday.  On Tuesday we left for beautiful Prince Edward Island to find a home.

This is our new home, it's a farmhouse style, in a small town and all completely finished inside and with a new kitchen. It will be a change for us, since we now live on 7.9 acres in the country on a lake.

There is no garage nor workshop, so we hope to start building in the spring.  I won't have any place at all to do woodworking (there is not even a basement) so maybe I'll have to get out the watercolours and do some painting instead.  I also desperately need to redo my website, so that is the plan for the winter.

I do hope to keep posting on some of the things I've made but haven't had time to get here on the blog.


  1. How pretty! I love the style of this house and it's landscaped beautifully. Can't wait to see the inside - hope you post some photos of it!


  2. Congrats!!! Beautiful new home!!


  3. Congratulations! The new house is pretty. Living in town is going to be quite a change, but I think the convenience is a nice trade-off. Where are you going to put all your shop equipment for now? I hope you also have time this winter to take lots of pictures of P.E.I. I've always wanted to visit there.

  4. Wonderful news for you. I am so sorry you are losing your workshop. I hope you will find other creative outlets.

  5. wow! Congrats on the sale (I was wondering how it was going). And talk about from 0 to 60 - that is some fast house finding. Amazing what the right agent can do.
    The new place looks totally charming! Can't wait to see what you do with it.
    Happy moving!

  6. sooo happy for you Julie!

    We would love to see your new home in blog posts! That's a LOT of content!

    What a beautiful place. Best wishes to you all!


  7. Julie that house is beautiful and I hope you share the inside as well! I have to say, that although I do miss the country and our old farm, I was surprised at how happy I adjusted to our new house and move to town. I hope it's the same for you!

  8. It's soooo beautiful Julie - and in such a picturesque part of the Country - so happy for you !

  9. Such a pretty farmhouse for your new home. I look forward to seeing more of your home and PEI (also a province I hope to one day visit.) Happy Thanksgiving!

  10. Hahaha we're all screaming for a home tour! Really, I also want to see the inside of this beautiful home, even if is all empty. ;) Good agents do make things happen! I'm so happy for you!
