Washer and dryer, you say? Well, this morning, I woke up in my 1890s Victorian era farmhouse to hear the sound of my cats going after the tube leading out to the dryer vent. Yes, the birds have once again loosened the cage over the vent to come in from the cold.
Congratulations on your home ownership and welcome to the wonderful world of old houses!
February 06, 2009 at 11:33 AM
Greeeeen Acres is the place to be...
...and you're going to love it!
I made the move from the city to the country 15 yrs. ago and have never looked back.
I'm excited for you, and cannot wait to see what you'll do, to turn that house into a home.
But, I guess you're entitled to a few more days to lollop around the proverbial cloud nine before the magic begins.
February 06, 2009 at 12:23 AM
OH MY STARS! That picture is hysterical! Happy Move!

Wow! Your home is great can't wait to follow you guys with all the decorating. I am a new blogger but have been enjoying yours for sometime and you have inspired me. Thanks Guys
January 30, 2009 at 07:38 PM

January 30, 2009 at 05:25 PM
LOL, love your curls! You're too much!!
January 30, 2009 at 05:05 PM
This photo had me laughing out loud at work. Hysterical! I am going to miss your nyc apartment but can't wait to see more of your new digs.
January 30, 2009 at 04:22 PM
Congrats to you both. Boy, Obama saving the country, you two making a new life and I can't even find time to get the laundry done. Time management is the key and you two having it going on. Enjoy each and every moment.

January 30, 2009 at 04:01 PM
Congrats! Can't wait to see how you decorate! Now you'll have room for all your tableware - sheesh - I always wondered where you put it!
January 30, 2009 at 03:22 PM
You guys are having too much fun. So, stop and get packing. Ok, I'll put my whip back in the closet.
I can't wait to have you guys back on the 9th. Good luck moving.

January 30, 2009 at 03:05 PM
Oh my God. When I read about your move I was so happy for you but I will admit I did have a "Green Acres" moment of panic. I didn't want to mention it because I thought it might be rude. It is so weird and now you have addressed the issue with such a hilarious photo. Good Luck and can't wait to hear more once you get settled. Penny

hahahaha! good luck with the move :)
January 30, 2009 at 01:40 PM
Congratulations on the house, I am so jealous. I cannot wait to see what you gents come up with on decorating, this is so thrilling. I am living vicariously through you and I know you won't disappoint. Is that too much pressure?
January 30, 2009 at 01:33 PM
January 30, 2009 at 01:20 PM
Wow..the house looks great. I can't wait to see the rehab..I hope it is a tv show/book or at least LOTS of pictures here.
I've been reading for some time, but never have commented. I love your style. This is generally the first thing I read so I'll miss your blog.
Millerton looks like a nice little town (I goggled), bet you could set up a shop.
Come to DC and flea market. My husband has a weekly route, but he could use your upscale taste. We moved 2 years ago for space issues and then inherited lots of family stuff from my mom. Moving is a chore, but well worth it. We back to parkland and even in the city of Alexandria we have deer and fox in the back yard. You'll love the country. Looks like good neighbors...how can you not love the sheep!

Omg....you guys are hilarious. "Green Acres is the place for me..."
January 30, 2009 at 01:04 PM
so excited for you both...looking forward to living the adventure with you.
January 30, 2009 at 12:55 PM
silly me, I just read your previous post and answered my question about the animals. Even better, you can enjoy them w/o all the work. Hopefully you can have your own flock of chickens if you want them, of course. Best wishes.
January 30, 2009 at 12:38 PM
Your blog is just going to be better than ever! How far away from the city is your home?
January 30, 2009 at 12:33 PM
Hi, a few questions....is it the house w/ the complete acreage? Are the animals included? I can't wait to read about it in your future blogs. Best of luck to you both! 70acres is a lot of elbow room.
January 30, 2009 at 12:28 PM
Congratulations on your new home . . . the photos of it ~ and your new "neighbors" are wonderful! Am looking forward to more details as you settle in.

January 30, 2009 at 11:38 AM

January 30, 2009 at 11:28 AM
That picture is hilarious! Can't wait to see the new house! Here's to a smooth move!
January 30, 2009 at 11:27 AM
You'll never regret your move to the country, fresh air, nature, slower paced life. Freedom!
January 30, 2009 at 11:09 AM
That's it? One day we get an email with photos of your new house and the next day you are moving!!! Your timing is good Eddie. . . when I saw those emails I wondered how long it would take to start seeing the transformation of that house! This will be fun!
Maria Killam |
January 30, 2009 at 11:02 AM
haha, love the picture! Good luck with the move, I cant wait to see the place once everything is in- yeah!!!

January 30, 2009 at 10:17 AM
I hope that you will be hanging this over your fireplace!!
January 30, 2009 at 09:51 AM
Hi Eddie. Congratulations on your move. We spend the weekends across the river in West Camp near Saugerties. Ifyour ever around our parts, email me andI'll show you around. Good luck to you and Jaithan. Priscilla

You made me smile, this morning, Eddie! Thanks!
Have a great move! I'm looking forward to reading about this wonderful adventure!
January 30, 2009 at 09:33 AM
What an exciting adventure for the two of you. Can't wait to see what magic you make there. (Although all of New York mourns losing you)
January 30, 2009 at 09:28 AM
What you can't pack......leave.....and have fun rebuying it at the local flea market !!!

January 30, 2009 at 09:27 AM
First and foremost, I am SO happy for you both.
That said, what about me? Waaaaaaaaaaaaa - no posts until February 9th? I guess I will survive somehow :-)
Looking forward to seeing all the creative things you will do with your new home.
January 30, 2009 at 09:20 AM
Okay...that picture is slightly disturbing...can't say I'll sleep well tonight after that visual Eddie :) Congrats on the new home and you must be a whirl with ideas for it I'm sure. It will be so much fun for you guys to shop for your new place...no more storage issues...no more stacking things for space...lots of room to entertain now :) Have a safe move and don't lift things that might yank a ham string...one word "Advil" take care and Whahoo on the new digs. It's so exciting to buy your first home, I remember hugging the wall when I walked into my first place. Yes I hugged the wall!!! I highly recommend it, very bonding with the structure. Tee Hee!

Pink is definitely your color! Enjoy the move -- use it as an excuse to repurpose and reinvent all your decorative goodies. And, of course, an excuse to go looking for just the right thing for that little nook in .... Ah, but I doubt you need an excuse!

January 30, 2009 at 08:52 AM
Good luck to you both. Green Acres indeed! I can't believe you kept this a secret like this!!!
January 30, 2009 at 08:49 AM
Wishing you a safe and problem-free move.
January 30, 2009 at 08:37 AM
Love your humor :)
Have fun, looking forward to your return.
January 30, 2009 at 08:31 AM
I can only image the what you will experience during the summer. Sitting outside, listening to the country sounds and enjoying each other and your surroundings. I am so excited for both of you.
January 30, 2009 at 08:15 AM
The picture is hysterical!!! Have a great move!!!!
January 30, 2009 at 08:01 AM
Congrats on the new home - it's puurrrfect for you and Jaithan!
Can't wait to see it come to life.
xoxo all the best.........
January 30, 2009 at 07:55 AM
if i were lucky enough to be your neighbor i would bring you a fresh baked pie in a vintage pie tin (that i happen to have picked up from an estate sale) wrapped in some kooky 1960's linen dish towel to welcome you two to your new home!
all the best, your devoted fan.

January 30, 2009 at 07:53 AM
Too funny. I did not realize this was happening so quickly! You must have been packing all of your collectibles for weeks!
January 30, 2009 at 07:13 AM
What a pic! lmao...
Wish you all luck in the new lovely house! I love those old houses with "soul". :)
January 30, 2009 at 07:01 AM
Bless you both,moving is so not fun.Of course looking to a new place and all that you can imagine to do is the fun part.
Bad weather to be moving.What about that Apartment moving sale? I would love the b and W prints....
January 30, 2009 at 06:45 AM
Move in safely and well wrap and bubble wrap your most precious items and mark the boxes clearly on all sides ---in your pre-determined code FM= family room how simple was that??? Please take my suggestions as mere suggestions for you or others that read this comment zone . These are comments and I hope they are seen as comments not something mean spirited.

January 30, 2009 at 06:20 AM
I love the photo but that house is fantastic!!! So much of the original charm...lucky, lucky you!!! I see alot of great posts on the way with your new adventure of city boys to countygentlemen!!!! I can't wait...
I wish you were on my side of the River so I could bump into you at the shops!
January 30, 2009 at 06:13 AM
OOOh I am so excited for you. I know you and Jaithan have been looking so good luck! I hate the actual moving part of moving but having the opportunity to make a fresh start in a new place is always refreshing. PS What do you think about what happened to Domino!
January 30, 2009 at 06:05 AM
I love your house!!! How fun will that be to decorate. I can't wait to see what you do. You two are so lucky! Keep the pics coming.
January 30, 2009 at 04:12 AM
I cannot wait to see what you do with your new home. Does your neighbor have an Arnold the Pig?
As a military spouse I have moved so many times (even trans-atlantic moves) it's not funny. I love to move though because it give me a chance to mix it up. Have fun with your move!

I just saw your new home. I can't believe how dreamy it all is, especially the four legged neighbors! Thanks for sharing all the pics. My gosh how exciting! Congratulations you two.
(P.S. Please think about setting up an owl box on one of those trees. Wouldn't that be awesome!)
January 30, 2009 at 02:12 AM

You too guys are 'hysterical' but alas 'Great Minds' think alike -- the same thought occurred to me was "Green Acres Show- well maybe not exactly, "Great Minds" ..... the thought that flashed through my mind of the late & beloved "Tasha Tudor" at her beautiful homestead I think it was in Vermont? --with her Corgie dogs.. Wishing you both Smooth Sailing" and throw in a couple of Alpaca's and you are set to go!
January 30, 2009 at 12:51 AM
I have to say I was quite moved this morning when I opened up my email account and found you had replied to my comment in an email. How classy is that! May you be blessed with a lifetime of happiness in your new home! Can't wait to see all of your new updates and pictures.
January 30, 2009 at 12:40 AM
Have a safe journey, Eddie and Jaithan. I am in love with your new house and excited to see how you work your magic.
January 30, 2009 at 12:37 AM
Well good luck with that! Moving is no fun, but you must be excited to have more space. I know I would need more space to house my collections in I were in NY. Love the picture...funny!
January 30, 2009 at 12:23 AM
Best wishes . . . looking forward to seeing how things come out on the other end.
January 30, 2009 at 12:17 AM

Your 'Dah-ling' photo made me smile profusely, as I too this weekend take possession of my country place. It's not so rich in character and history as yours, unless you call stuck-in-the-70s-bad-rusted-harvest-gold fixtures & appliances character!! As an interior designer in Vancouver, I plan to escape to my seaside shack up the coast where I will be in renovation heaven, all the while checking your blog for terrific inspiration. All my best on your new home and cheers to country living!
