I started this wrap last August at Myrtle Beach and was getting near the end this year in Gulf Shores... It pretty much marks the beginning of the decision to sell our Bungalow and move...
Its finish marks FINALLY beginning to make this new house home... That has not come easily to me this time. When we moved in the Bungalow on the 21st of December 2004, we had a tree up by bedtime on the 23rd. That has been the way I nest... until this time.
The breakfast nook... that's my spot, my moment, of finally starting to nest inside this house (the porch had been my refuge/nest/homing spot). This rustic little table was at an antique store in Tyler called Silver Lining. The owner, Carla, said people often asked her if there was an "s" on the end of Lining and she always was happy to respond, "No, there is only one Savior and He is the Silver Lining." I loved that... and I love this little table. Makes me smile.
I've left areas in the hutch for my silver domes... for when I ever get to the boxes they are still packed inside. The two yellow chairs were up-cycled by my daughter-in-law, mother of the Viking Princess, Candice.
It is good to finally get one spot to feel like home. I hope to share some more spots soon. ;)
And, I finished this sweater, Hitofude, last night. I can't wait for it to dry!
