I am spending my days tackling boxes. Here are some sneak peaks. We didn’t get the trim around the doors and windows up before we moved…It will all look better once that’s in place. I just took some as is pictures. You can see I have LOTS to do. The tool box has a semi permanent location on the island as we’re constantly needing it for something and we don’t dare put it in the garage for the fear that the vortex of STUFF out there will suck it up into oblivion.
I was hoping the dining room would be big enough to allow us to keep all the leaves in the table at all times with all the chairs gathered round and it does. That makes me so happy. The rug is a $50 thrift store find that I am super happy about. I love it!
This is in the kitchen looking towards the back entry door from the garage. STUFF is lined up needing to here or there. I am sorting as I go. Some has already been thrown and some has already been taken to the Goodwill store. Over the years I’ve never know where my permanent home was going to be. It’s lead me to pick up things here and there thinking one day I’d have a home for them. Some things I do and some I don’t. Some things I had at the farm house don’t fit in here. The Goodwill is the lucky recipient of some of it.
I haven’t really done any decorating…there are still too many boxes to sort through. I did find one box that was labeled “Chickens from Ila”. I grabbed that box out as I immediately knew where I wanted to put them. My blog reader Ila sent the chickens to me and I just love them!!
That’s the house update for now. More will follow. I promise!!
Right now I am off to keep the laundry moving along. We had friends borrow us a bunch of moving blankets and many of them got dirty in the move. I am washing those up so we can return them…and of course….more unpacking.
