Still working at moving!

Whew! This backwards moving is getting to me!

So far, we've got my husband's office all moved, unpacked and mostly put away. Tomorrow, the satellite internet service will be connected, so we can call his office complete. Of course, my stewdio has been done for a long time. I just haven't had much time to spend in it. I've been slowly unpacking fabrics, and putting them into clear tubs with BIG labels on them. I'll post pictures when I have that completed, too. Hubby made me some "rough" shelving to my specifications, and all we have left there is to install two more lights in the ceiling. Yesterday, we planted 7 shrub rose bushes, and our wind sculpture in the front bed at the new house. We should be able to see it from the living room, dining room, and hubby's office.

The mini-hearth room is all completed, my birdhouses atop the cupboards, and all the birds where they belong. All the china from the formal dining room is waiting in their tubs to be unpacked, and all the linens are in the linen closet, waiting for us to arrive. We've actually established an official date for the move which is Tuesday, August 6th. It will be good to have the big stuff there, so I can start putting away all of it for good. The kitchen will wait until next Monday to be packed and unpacked. The cats are the last to go - they will go with me before the movers come, so they can feel a little more comfortable in their new digs.

I went to a consignment furniture store the other day to see if I could find a small table for hubby's computer. In addition to that piece of furniture which was pretty easy - look at what else came home with me:

I'm sure it doesn't have a high monetary value, but I LOVE it! It sort of matches my Granny's Martha Washington sewing cabinet, so of course, it had to come home with me.

I'll close this post with pictures of my favorite summer flowers at the house we are selling. They are perennial hibiscus and we have them in white, pink and red. They are just gorgeous! And no, we have had no offers on this house....yet.
