I’m sure you all are wondering about the move and how things are going. The move went really well. It was a lot of work but things went really smoothly and now, although we still have more to do, we are feeling quite settled and can begin enjoying this beautiful house.
Here are a few pictures I snapped today revealing a few areas and items in the house I am enjoying.
Now that we have bookshelves I am able to display favourite Martha Stewart and Real Simple magazines; this is also thanks to handy plastic magazine holders I found at the Habitat for Humanity Restore for 75¢ each.
One of the rare pleasures of unpacking in a move is “rediscovering” things you own and using them in new or different ways. I’d picked up this vintage, gold-rimmed rose plate at a thrift store over a year ago, but never had a place to display it. Now, with a new (to me) night stand, I have the perfect way to use it: a spot to drop my jewelry at the end of the night.
Bar stools! You may recognize these from pictures I shared on saverqueen in earlier days. In my last apartment, where I lived for newly two years, there was no bar, so these 1960′s stools spent lonesome time down in the storage locker. Now, they’ve made an appearance again at our breakfast bar, and I get to enjoy them all over again.
