NOW FOR THE FUN PART





I'm in a daze this morning - tired, but giddy about having possession of the old house I love. My daughter and her family stopped by the house with supper last night and that was such a nice gesture. Glenn and I thoroughly enjoyed having them come and celebrate with us. I emailed friends who had been very supportive throughout this whole house-hunting ordeal and invited them to stop by as well. I wanted to show them there truly was a house! We had run into many obstacles along this course and at times it seemed as if we'd never be able to buy a house we wanted. It was wonderful to finally be able to share our new old home with our family and friends. Glenn and I stayed at the house until after 9:30 last night but when we arrived back here, neither of us had the energy to pack up the car for another trip out to the "farm". We'll regroup, recharge, and be back out there tonight. I'll pack up a few more things today and make more lists and phone calls. I knew there would be much to do so this isn't a surprise to me. I'm looking down the road to the day we'll have things arranged as we want them and be able to just enjoy living in our new old place. Ideas for decorating are swirling in my head and I'd like to continue a vintage theme in the kitchen. I thought I'd share some photos of my latest vintage "finds". I have GINA to thank for getting me hooked on the older Pyrex bowls. I know my mom has some too, so maybe she'll be willing to part with them. Gina, when I saw your Pyrex collection, I knew I had to find some of my own. So thank you - I think. (*v*)
