I often read your blog and always find it very interesting. Thought it was about time i let you know...Keep up the great work

Dear A-M, I can imagine how hard it is! Your house is very nice, and I admire every bit of it, the outside and inside, the way you placed the garage and the stairway to the door. I thought your creativity was amazing, building on a slop and placing a pool on he backyard. Whoever got it, is a lucky person. But your knowledge can create another dream again. We will be here to see it! Take care.

Oh my. This post brought back some memories. First, I have never posted here before but I need to tell you that I admire the work you have done very much. The house is beautiful - and it is your eye and attention to detail that makes it so.

Two years ago July we left the house in the country we though we would never leave. I wept. A lot.We had poured so much of ourselves into that house. Both my babies came home to that house. On the last day I cleaned and scrubbed one last time. Thought about my strong mother a lot. I finished what I could and left the last floor washing to the lovely woman who had helped keep our house clean for 10 years. I handed her the mop and the pail. I opened the door and walked out. I did not look back.

It has been a two year process. We lived in the "wee house" for 18 months. A family of four in 500 sq feet. (Down from 4000) Just a bit of downsizing. We rebuilt (we are still rebuilding) our arts and crafts city house. But we are now living in it and we love it.

We left our home for many many good reasons. Complicated reasons. Lots to do with the children and where they were going to finish their growing up.

I do understand how hard it is.(I did some of the same:) I packed the hidden stuff and then set aside a room in the house that no one went in as the box room. It helped.

I have no doubt that you will pack all the love you have for each other in the top of the bags where it is easily got at and move on to the next adventure.

It must be hard..just gotta take time to soak up your last moments there. Thinking about the new adventure is great, because I'm sure a lovely, wonderful adventure is waiting for you! I wish you all the best!!

2010-05-13T23:33:45.331+10:00

yes, you'll have to rename this blog "the house that A-M sold", and then start another for the new place - can't wait to hear what your plans are!

2010-05-13T22:54:04.356+10:00

Oh I feel for you dearest, but I am sure you'll create something equally fabulous again, stay strong!

2010-05-13T22:35:13.102+10:00

If I have learned nothing else over the past two years, I have learned this. A house is just a building. It's the people inside that are most important. Our emotions get tied up in the home aspect of the house, I admit. But you're right - you're in for an amazing adventure!

2010-05-13T21:03:48.149+10:00

What a great time you ladies must have had reliving the journey you have been on together. Did you sign each others copy of Home Beautiful!! Bring on the next house!!

2010-05-13T20:31:26.602+10:00

I like the sound of your mission brown rental. Sounds like my kind of place, particularly if it has saloon doors to the kitchen. But I'd cry too if I had to pack a whole house again. Can't wait to see where you land next after your stint in mission brown land.x

2010-05-13T19:52:53.515+10:00

I like your thoughts on change and the unknown A-M....the only way to think. Congratulations on the magazine article, the house looks so wonderful. xv

2010-05-13T17:58:21.382+10:00

A-M it's normal to be sad after all the heart and soul you've put into this gorgeous home....but just think about what you will do better/differently next time!!! All the excitement of another project...can't wait to see what you do with the rental.All that family love will go with you no matter where you live.
Just recieved the parcel that I purchased from your sale and absolutely love it ..Thank you so much and take care...more cake to mop up the tears???? Kym X

2010-05-13T17:40:40.933+10:00

I'm a big fan of the swift move. There's something about a totally empty house - when it doesn't look like your home any more - that helps with that final detaching process. It's all very well for moving day but not before! Enjoy the beautiful home while you can x

2010-05-13T16:51:14.481+10:00

Sorry if I have missed the obvious but why did you sell? What a beautiful home! Is the plan to go on creating beautiful homes for all of us to enjoy? I will be keeping an eye on your next wonderful project. Best wishes!

2010-05-13T15:47:48.129+10:00

My heart bleeds for you A-M but keep a hold of the fact that it's bricks and mortar and you have so much more to protect and hold dear. Life goes on and there will be new beginnings. But keep on scheming as it is the only way to stay sane. Plus we all look forward to the next chapter even if you are filled with trepidation at the moment.

I can not believe how much I have missed while I have been sick. I cant believe you are selling the house!!! I know I am slow. I have just finished looking through HB and loving your story and the photos. It looks fantastic...and now you are leaving!!! Snifff! I am sad to see you go, but know you will do something fantastic with your new digs and I cant wait to see.

2010-05-13T13:40:34.194+10:00

I am sending you a super sympathetic hug... I can totally understand your mixed emotions, and the tears must fall as it is all part of the detaching process. I am a schemer too, and it is absolutely the way to be!

2010-05-13T12:16:34.831+10:00

I really, really, really hope that whoever bought your house knows how lucky they are. And I don't just mean the house itself, but the spirit and love that is built into it as well. Cry as much as you need to I reckon!

2010-05-13T11:22:47.928+10:00

Dear A-M
I guess you know you've done well when the thought of leaving brings tears.. heck I'd cry to leave your beautiful home.... I'm so glad that you are full of excitement for your next adventure....

PS... opened the parcel and it was like xmas instead of birthday.. haha.. those knobs are big.. but beautiful!!! [that didn't sound right!]... have a great day and keep enjoying the moment... xxx Julie

2010-05-13T11:21:32.230+10:00

I feel the same way but on a less intense note I'm sure. I didn't even know what to comment because I didn't know if I was happy for you but sad that you're selling and it is over or excited that your creation is featured in an awesome magazine, maybe even a little worried about your sweet boys and their feelings? Mixed emotions is the perfect description. This has been a roller coster ride, which can be both scary and make you sick but also exciting and fun. What ever you do I will be there to watch and support. Love, Heidi



This time of heightened emotions is your house'...

2010-05-13T11:12:47.379+10:00

This time of heightened emotions is your house's last gift to you - it would be such a shame to be numb! You done good, why not swan a little, enjoy what you have created. In a way, like an old lover, it will always be part of your life.

2010-05-13T09:16:44.191+10:00

I always feel sad each time we sell up and move. We all put so much of ourselves into creating our own little pieces of heaven.
Ooh what a yummy morning tea.
Off to buy the magazine tonight when I shop.

2010-05-13T09:07:18.349+10:00

I seriously don't know how you are doing it, so cry away my friend! - I'm not sure i'm going to cope with no more of this lovely house anymore - but that is when I remember how exciting the next adventure will be - can't wait x

2010-05-13T09:03:56.141+10:00

you are an inspiration! really has been wonderful watching this journey unfold. can't wait to see what the next chapter brings. the best is yet to come i'm sure! xxx

Atleast you've got that wonderful magazine to remind you of your home always! And I think you're going to have a blast decorating and designing in your new home on a fresh palette!
