~ my parents moved!


After moving my son into his dorm at Stetson University, I flew straight to Chicago to help Hillary move to a new apartment in Lincoln Park... Next, I flew straight to Florida to help my parents get settled into their new home in Fort Myers. I am basically a professional mover. Hillary's apartment post is coming up next, but first, here's a look at the new home of my parents. 



Can you tell this is my favorite vignette? I took a million pics!

Lucky for me, my brother and sister-in-law arrived before me, and set the stage for easy decorating. Literally, the dining room table was a store, full of beautiful, previously owned items, ready for placement. 

We became vignette-creating masters...







Give me a hammer and a nail, a tape measure and a pencil, and I can hang just about anything.

The plate wall was especially fun...

My mom has an amazing majolica collection...




I'm pretty sure we wiped out the plate hanger supply in Fort Myers.



The dining room...




 Master... The sconces are crooked below but have been straightened!


More vignettes and favorite things around the house...



















Did not get to spend much time in the pool this time, but will be excited to go back!



My parents act like I'm some sort of superhero because I helped them move. I mean, I am their daughter!? I could not be happier to do it! Any chance I can get to spend time with M and D is treasured ~ even if I'm on a ladder ordering people around!

Hillary's new crib coming up next...


Here are past posts featuring last home of my mom and dad...

Hi Jan,
WOW your mom and Dad's home is so lovely, all the beautiful furnishings they have look so perfectly put together. I bet they love all the styling you did. Such a beautiful home. You have been so busy you are a professional mover and decorator.
Have a sweet day, Elizabeth

I love your parents (and of course you own) taste!! We have a lot of the same books and collections! Moving is so much work and it looks like you make it fun!

Jan, I know you love helping your mom and dad and also know that it means a lot to them for you to be there offering your expertise. The rooms and shelves are stunning. Your mom does have an amazing majolica collection as well as gorgeous boxes. Thanks for sharing. I'm going to add some pins to bookshelf board!

What a gorgeous home! All the majolica is amazing and looks great in the niche.

What a warm and inviting home. I love the colors. I have so many of the same items...majolica (although not nearly this wonderful of a collection), the toile fabric on the chairs and many of the décor books. So very nice of you to help your parents get settled.
