Dude, We Bought a House.

Life changes are afoot! Jeff and I have been in the process of buying, um, a house. We closed on it yesterday, and then we bought a car for good measure! We're moving to Beacon, NY, as of next week. I'm a little overwhelmed right now and not really in the best blogging state of mind, so things may be a bit quiet here.

My plans for the next couple weeks consist of: 1) staying sane while packing up our little Queens apartment, 2) sewing curtains and pillows with the garment fabrics I have on hand, 3) purchasing the washer/dryer of my dreams, and 4) blogging as much (or as little) as I can.

Things are changing, but not too much. I'll still be here, and I'll still be teaching at The Sewing Studio in New York City. (Want to help a girl pay her mortgage? I still offer private lessons!) When I set up my new studio in the new house, I'll be back to sewing my usual stuff.

Readers, I'm so excited. Jeff and I have wanted this for a while. And it's happening! Thank for your support; it means the world to me to get your nice comments and emails every day.

P.S. The cats have no idea what's in store for them.

  11. Congratulations! What exciting news. The house looks lovely, will miss reading your blog posts while you're busy settling in.

  12. Congratulations, it's such a cute house! Good luck with the move, and as for the washer and dryer... I bought them this year and they are amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Congratulations, hope your move goes smoothly and safely and that you soon have a lovely sewing space set up. (I agree with poppykettle - your house looks very cute and distinctively American to me too!)

  14. That's awesome. We bought our first house in 2006 and were so scared. The mortgage was huge and we were wondering how it would all work out. Well 6 years later that is the least of our worries. In time you make more money and your mortgage stays the same. It's a good thing. And it's fun decorating and renovating.

  15. Congratulations Gertie! You are an inspiration and you deserve the best in life. Anyone paying attention can see that good things happen to good people-who work their asses off!?! I can't wait to see what happens for you next. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  16. Congratulations! It's an adorable house, bound to be even more fun once you put your stamp on it. Hooray!

  20. ooo, you are moving upstate (well, it's all relative; I'll still be more upstate than you will be and anyone up in Potsdam will be more upstate than any of us!) - you and the kitties will love it.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I have two very dear friends who live in Beacon, NY! It's an adorable little town -- I'm quite jealous that I don't live there myself. Congratulations on your big move!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Aww congratulations, it looks like a lovely house! Good luck with the unpacking! XxxX http://thesecondhandrose.blogspot.com/

    ReplyDelete
  23. Congratulations, that looks like a very cute house!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Congratulations. Beacon is very hip and I believe there's an express train right into Grand Central so it's a hop, skip, and a jump into NYC. Plus Dia.

    So exciting. AND you can plant a Victory Garden!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Congratulations! Make yourself a Fabulous Sewing space!

    ReplyDelete
  26. CONGRATS!!!! Beacon, that's not far from Woodbury commons, right. :)

    Congrats!!! It's so exciting and I wish You both (and naturally the cats too...) a wonderful life in that lovely house.

    Greetings!

    ReplyDelete
  30. The cats are gonna love it! After the initial upset, that is. Congratulations to all of you!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Becoming homeowners and car owners all at once? You're dangerously close to becoming a responsible adult! What's next - news of becoming child owners - no, that's not the right term. I mean parents?!

    JUST KIDDING! It's great that you and Jeff have found a house. I look forward to reading more about it, and your home dec sewing adventures.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Congrats! That's a wonderful life development. Now I have to look up Beacon NY to see where it is :-)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Congrats on the house! I bet that the kittehs will love the new space.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I've been reading your blog for a while and finally have to comment because *I* live in Beacon. It's a great little town - I've been here about 2 years and I love it. There's a fairly substantial fiber community mixed in with all the artists and glassblowers as well. Congrats and welcome to the neighborhood!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wow what I beautiful house.
    Hope your move goes smoothly.
    Congrats to you all Gertie, Jeff and the cats. x

    ReplyDelete
  37. WOW! That's HUGE! Congratulations to you both. I'm so happy for you! (No wonder you've got the interior sewing bug. You've got a lot of curtains to sew!)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Congratulations! My boyfriend and I just bought a house, too. We close on Tuesday and I'm in much the same situation as you; a mad scramble for decent window coverings.

    Your house is gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Congrats! Happy home sewing...need to make some curtains too.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wow! How thrilling. Have fun with it, even amongst the chaos. And cats typically do not like change. Good luck with that. But the extra space to rule over will make up for it in the long run. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  41. That's wonderful news, congratulations to you both. Your new house looks splendid and so picturesque! x

    ReplyDelete
  42. Congratulations! What a lovely, quaint little home; it looks friendly :) All the best for your move :)

  44. You bought a house AND a car? How awesomely grown-up of y'all! Congratulations :) The house look super adorable :D

    ReplyDelete
  45. Congrats on the new house! There's nothing like having your own place. My favorite moment when we first moved in was banging in a nail at 1 a.m. cuz I didn't have to worry about bothering the neighbors. ;-)

    The cats will enjoy exploring all the new spaces and playing in the boxes.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Congratulations! What made you guys decide to buy in Beacon?

    ReplyDelete
  63. Congratulations! It is so beautiful up around the Beacon area; you are going to love it. I used to live in Upper Westchester County and still miss it. You'll have to get used to driving everywhere, though; it takes a bit of adjustment!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Congratulations! This sounds very exciting for you and Jeff, and I'm sure that having a little more space for your sewing can only mean good things for you, and for all of us that you share it with!

    ReplyDelete
  65. How exciting for you! Will you have your own sewing room? Just must.

    Looks cute, too. Congrats!

    ReplyDelete
  66. Congratulations! It looks beautiful. Good job on the washer/dryer too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Congratulations! The kitties will be fine. Just put some of their familiar-smelling (to them) things around. Plus regularity in their feeding- same food, same time- can go a long ways. They'll probably enjoy exploring the new digs. Enjoy feathering your new nest! (Oops; sorry, Kitties!)

    ReplyDelete
  68. Congratulations! It's a beautiful house!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Wow! Congratulations! I look forward to seeing your new sewing space :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  74. Well done, and all best wishes for your life in your new home. It looks so cosy.
    Such a contrast from Queens, I should imagine.
    But you take my breath away with all you fit into your life!

    ReplyDelete
  78. Congratulations! Do you already have your new sewing room picked out? Best of luck with the move!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  79. Wonderful, wishing you every happiness in your very own home!!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I am BEYOND excited for you that closing went well and you're on the move!! Can't wait to see the new sewing space--nothing like vicarious decoration and equipment arranging from a distance, am I right? GET THAT WASHER. You're going to need it, what with the new dog and all. Also: GET THE WASHER. Because it's awesome (and totally worth the price of the house). Yay!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Congratulations! Beacon is such a cute town, and the Dia is amazing. Beacon is close to NYC, so it's convenient too. Have fun! I'm just a little bit jealous. :)

    ReplyDelete
  82. Congrats on the purchase, we bought our first house last year and moved a week after having our baby. I've only just gotten around to sewing the curtains! It's so much fun to be able to put your own touches on a place. Beats renting that's for sure :)

  86. Wow!! Congratulations! It is a luxury to do your own laundry in your own house! BTW, I have the electrolux front loader, which I love. I only wish I had gotten the tropical blue version... The cats will love sitting on a warm dryer - at least mine do.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Congratulations! My husband and I have put an offer on a house that's become my "Tara", heh. Have fun and we're looking forward to seeing pictures of your new sewing room!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Congratulations! It makes me ridiculously happy to see good things happening for you and Jeff.

    The house is adorable and I can't wait to see how you deck it out. Maybe you'll inspire me to actually care about home dec sewing the way you've inspired me to start sewing clothing for myself again.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Congratulations! Home ownership is such a beautiful thing.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Wow. Congratulations!!! Are you going to give us a peek once you set up your home sewing studio? I'm really happy for you and Jeff..and the cats :)

    ReplyDelete
  105. That's wonderful news! Funny, we've done just the opposite: left the house and sold the car for an apartment in the city :) In fact, I saw you leaving the subway station a few weeks back! You were wearing your lovely turquoise coat, but I didn't notice until we were going in opposite directions and it just didn't seem like the right time to say hi. Anyway, good luck to you, Jeff and the kitties! I've been to Dia, that part of NY is so charming.

    ReplyDelete
  106. That is so awesome. I am so happy for you both.

    ReplyDelete

  116. The cats are going to love the new washer and dryer. Ours still sit transfixed by the washer while it runs. Congrats on the house! Hopefully you have plenty of room for sewing, cooking, gardening to display more of your domestic goddess-ness.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Congrats! We are under contract for a house as of this past Sunday - but ours has yet to be built, so we don't move until this summer. I'm envious of your laundry room-to-be, because I'm still trying to convince my husband that our 12 year-old set needs to be replaced, but since we have to buy a new refrigerator (the house doesn't come with one) I'll have to wait. Can't wait to see how you decorate - make sure you post pics for us, please!

    ReplyDelete

  131. Congratulations! It looks like a fantastic little place. It really is amazing to own your own home.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Congrats, Gertie! Now you're in my neck of the woods (I'm in Pleasant Valley). Commuting to the city can be fun--hope you have lots of portable sewing projects or sewing books to read on the train. I did it for 8 years before settling once again in my childhood home of Dutchess County full time. Best of luck to you and Jeff (and the cats).

    ReplyDelete
  133. What an exciting milestone! There is nothing like having your own nest to feather. I know the area- I had relatives in Dutchess county nearby. Very pretty place! So happy for you!

    ReplyDelete
  134. Congratulations!! So excited for you. What a cute house!!

    ReplyDelete
  135. CONGRATS on the house!! But I am SO VERY SAD that you are moving to Beacon, NY. I just moved from Poughkeepsie,NY to Phoenix, AZ and I would have loved to take a sewing lesson from you. Congrats again and I hope all will be well with the new house!!

    Machila ;p

    ReplyDelete
  136. Congratulations to you both ( and of course the kitties). Of course I'm totally green with envy. It's gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Congratulations, Gertie!
    WOW, I can imagine how excited and happy you must be. A whole house for you to decorate! and it looks wonderful, I hope the area is also nice.
    I can't wait to see it inside, and your new studio!

    ReplyDelete
  138. What a pretty house. That would be my dream home!
    Good luck with everything.

    ReplyDelete
  139. The new house looks roomy and cute. I know you will like it. I have an older Kenmore Elite front loader and dryer. No steam.. I love it anyway. I recently washed custom printed fabric from Spoonflower with Sun and Earth no phosphate cleaner on the delicate cycle and the results were great.
    Regarding the kitties, I have read that one thing you can do is take them to the new house a couple of times before you move to give them a chance to get used to the house before you move.

    ReplyDelete
  140. Oooh, Congratulations! The house is adorable! I remember buying our first house and I loved every second of home ownership. Being able to make all of these decisions on your own was so fun! (OK, so maybe it's not all fun, but most of it was :) )

    The picture of your cat made me laugh. It reminded me of moving with out cats. I used to find them hiding out in boxes or perched atop a giant, wobbling stack of them.

    ReplyDelete
  141. How lovely...wishing you well in this latest adventure in your life! Now Jeff will have all sorts of "Honey-Do" projects heading his way.

    ReplyDelete
  146. Yay!! I just moved from my little apartment in Brooklyn to a house (far, far away. I moved back home to Georgia). Culture shock aside, having space to stretch and sew is a DREAM. Oh, and my cat has never been happier! Congrats.

    Wanted to also say congrats on your new house!! We also just bought a house and will move in May (Boston area). Moved from NJ/NY in Sept. So missing NY! Enjoy your new home!
