Wasn't this just incredible ???
I have really been swamped this past week! I'm getting e-mails asking what's up? Where are you? Are you alright? I'm fine, just got several irons in the fire lately! One thing that got almost completed, was that I got my Peacock Bookends so I could finish out my shelves!
I am THRILLED over these bookends. They are gorgeous! Very heavy! I got them from Amazon for $ 8.41 plus shipping which brought them to $ 12.46 !! The Collector Set of plates I got did not have a plate of "Melanie" by herself ,which I want. I found one on Ebay and I'm waiting for it. I will take one of these down and replace it with " Melanie"! :)
When I moved in here all of Hubby's deceased wife's things had to go somewhere so I could put my dishes, pans, small appliances and such in the kitchen cabinets. We had gotten the storage shed for my extra stuff but it was in such disarray after the kids unloaded the stuff in it, there was no room to walk! So all that stuff that was in the kitchen, is piled on the dining table and floors to be packed up and go in the store room that is in the garage. So the project has been that besides our normal workload around here, we are trying to get the outside shed organized so the stuff in the garage store room can fit in there. Then we will pack up the dining room contents and put it in the garage store room to be saved for Hubby's granddaughter Anna. Did you get all that?? So we are just overwhelmed as we want to get the dining ready BEFORE THANKS GIVING !!!!
No one has even so much as eaten a cracker or had a glass of water in this room! Even before I came here. No decorating had been done except for putting dishes in the China Hutch. The furniture is brand new. so I'll be scarce around the blog world till we make some serious progress! I'll be back with pics soon! Have a great week everyone!!
