The big day finally arrived. Everything in the old house was finally packed up.
We’d labeled all the boxes with which room they should go to. Then we labeled the rooms in the new house, so the movers would know where to place things. There’s my studio on the right.
And here comes the furniture. The men are moving my beloved printers cabinet into my studio and I am hovering around making sure that they baby it, (They did. They were awesome).
Carefully putting the cabinet in place.
My studio at the end of the day. Lots of work still to be done!
If you look at the second picture in this post, you’ll see an empty bookshelf. We had many of these shelving units in our old living room, because we’re both avid readers. However our new, much smaller living room will only hold one tall bookshelf and one that is half that tall. So we donated probably two thirds of our books to the library and then placed all the extra bookshelves in my studio! I had long dreamed of having a whole wall of shelves to contain all my supplies!
On the second day in the new house we started re-assembling the shelves in my studio. You can see that one tall bookshelf is already in place and one short shelf unit has been assembled. A screw driver lies atop the shelf, ready for assembling the remaining shelves. Altogether, I now have 3 tall units and 2 short ones. A dream come true!
Here’s what the other side of the studio looked like at that point.
More progress has been made over the past week, but I’m not quite ready to show it off yet. Perhaps I’ll turn the tables on the idea of a house warming gift. Instead, I think that I’ll have a giveaway with my next blog post. We could have 2 winners. One person could win a pair of earrings and one person could win a ceramic pendant. What do you think? I’ll mull over this idea (which just now occurred to me!) a bit and see what I can come up with before my next post. Stay tuned!
I am always delighted to read your comments! Hope to hear from you.
