We’re now in the United States! I’m loving Vermont, especially at this time of year, with all the gorgeous colors that are surrounding us… Denise and I fell in love with a charming house that was built around 1880 and we moved into our new home in Winooski on October 1st.
This place is so big! A couple is renting the basement, but the rest of the space is ours.
Louis-Justin loves his room, and we have a big office, a TV room, an enclosed porch
and even a guest bedroom! Who wants to visit?!
The area we live in is wonderful – everyone is friendly and we couldn’t ask for more diversity, as Winooski is considered the most ethnically diverse city in Vermont. I’ve never lived in such a small town (7000 inhabitants – so tiny!), but I never want to leave. Burlington is 5 minutes away, so we can go to the city whenever we want. There are so many great things to see and do around here! I already feel more at home here than I ever did in Québec.
The owner lived here and decorated everything so nicely…
She’s a great landlord (Hi Jessica!) and she left us many things.
Once we’re completely settled, I’ll take pictures of the rooms with our things in it.
I’ll write more about life in the United States when I have more time (I do have one complaint though – why is there high fructose corn syrup in everything here?!), but I need to wrap things up for now because I’m hungry.
I have not one, not two but THREE pieces of great news for anyone who reads this blog and loves stationery (everyone, right?) and loves Halloween (everyone, right?) :

2) I just listed some stationery on Etsy that would be perfect for Halloween letters! The 2 following designs were included in the August & September SSS bundles, and they’re now for sale – just in time for Halloween. Click on the photos to see the full listings!
3) We’re doing a giveaway and will send the Creepy Doll notepad to FIVE lucky blog readers! Just leave a comment on this post and you’ll automatically be entered to win. Great Halloween stationery too!
