Pink Saturday – Totem on the Walking Path

 

016

Taken Friday evening on our daily walk in our village of Stowe, home of the 2011 HGTV Dream Home.

Be sure to visit Beverly, our host,  at How Sweet the Sound.

Vanity Card:

With the imminent closing of my husband’s company in Vermont, we are savoring the summer outdoors here with our walks. However, on a daily basis as we deal with negotiations required for a transfer to California and the sale of the house, we are constantly on guard. The loss of integrity and prevalence of deception in both areas is astounding. I look forward to surrounding our little empty nest family with good people in a new location and relaxing. Off Guard! :-)

Happy Pink Saturday, Nancy! The grass there is so beautiful. I keep hearing that the St. Augustine grass we have is scratchy, but I've just never thought about it having lived in the South my entire existence. But that looks like a lovely spot.

XO,

Sheila :-)

Happy PiNk, Nancy...

Now that's one neat totem. I'm so out of the loop with the dream home..used to always keep up with it. That's pretty neat that Stowe is where the next one is being built.

Have a wonderful day,
Stephanie ♥

That's very interesting. Looks just like something you'd find in the art district where I used to live.

Nancy, thanks for stopping by. I'm surprised to see your life is changing and a big move is projected soon - hope so much all goes well. Your home is gorgeous, I know someone special will eventually care for it as you have.
Good luck dear - you will be in my thoughts.

I have been thinking of you getting ready for your move and new adventure....while we never met, it will be lonely knowing you are gone...does that make sense??

I always enter those darn Dream Home contests...why I bother I have no idea, but that is so neat that the next one is being built there....Have you seen it? I have always wanted a home in islands of Lake Champlain...
Hugs,

I love your Totem. Wow, you live in my favorite town in Vermont. My mom lives in South Burlington, and I always stop by in Stowe on my way up. I didn't know that the 2011 HGTV dream home was there. How lovely, I hope they chose a place to enjoy the gorgeous view of the mountains.

Ok Nan, that is just the best. Love all the colors. Sounds like you won't be there for the unveiling of the new home. I am happy you are moving on girlfriend and leaving all this behind. Happy Pink Saturday sweetie, Char

Love the totem. Sorry to hear of the closing of your DHs company. We have family and friends in Cali and all seem to love it there.

Meg said...

Nancy,
Last time I visited you were getting ready for putting the house on the market. I guess it sold.
I so agree with your statement about integrity.Hope it is not a luxury of the past. Will you still have you business in CA? If you have a bunch of inventory to get rid of I would be interested, let me know. I am beginning to sew again and opening my shop again this month.Thank you for stopping by my blog. Blessing and strength to you as you begin your new life with all the challenges and transitions that will entail.Meg

Meg said...

Nancy
I will get back to you on Tuesday after I find out about a job coming through. Yes, I think I live only about an hour away since I am 1/2 hour from Montpelier.We will talk again soon. I would email you but my email will not connect to the blogs. It is pegsownmail@gmail.com
Thanks Meg

I think your showing for today is very good. That is a neat totem pole. Regardless of where you go, just keep us blogging friends informed. We would miss you.

You must have some stunning scenery there in Vermont. It sounds like you have a lot going on right now. I hope the move to California is a great change for you and I am sure you will love the weather! Happy Pink and take care!

Maggie said...

What a neat find on your walk!

And what a shame with it all regarding the business issues... I hope you have a great time when you finally get where you're going!

Happy PS!

Hi Nancy! Isn't that something! Quite interesting looking! I'm sorry to hear about your husband's company closing down. I do wish you and your family the best!

Lisa McDonald said...

How fun is that!

Best of luck to you in your new venture.

Couture de Papier said...

Thank you Nan...I hope to go down this winter and check it out alot of scams down there? Are you moving to Cal or Cananda? VT is the number 1 place to live now because residents have learned how to be self sufficient with food,crops etc....
Isn't Cal bankrupt? LOL denise

Mary said...

What a perfect picture for Pink Saturday. Don't let the move put you at sixes and sevens. Everything will eventually get done. It always does. I'm sending you wishes for a smooth move. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Lisa West said...

Oh, how I wish I could go to your sale next weekend. Good Luck. Maybe you will have supplies you don't sell on your Etsy after the sale?! Found you through NE Bloggers. Hugs from Maine. Lisa

Hi, Nancy,
Very colorful totem and beautiful green countryside there where you live. I am glad you are able to enjoy the out of doors with your family. I pray for a quick sell for your home and a pleasant move. Change can be very hard but you are keeping it all in perspective. Lots of love and hugs being sent your way~ Vicki
