Good Afternoon Girls,
Is it snowing again?!?!?! The snow flakes look to be about the size of dinner plates! One of the little neighbor kids built a snow man a few days ago. It's about the size of a rabbit, no, I'm not kidding. It just about drives Jingle crazy 'cause he is certain it IS a rabbit!!!
Well, the REAL reason I am writing is to give an update on our joint studio status. So far so...sew good. Things are still in transition & will be for some time, but all in all, the merger has been going better than I expected. I sewed today!!! - downstairs, in the "new" studio space!!! : ) And, Scott has been playing on his computer since Friday evening. : ) Shelby is not as put out about the transition as I feared she would be & Jingle has been permitted to come in & check things out, under supervision, & all has gone smoothly. : ) Relief!
Our "new" living room is livable. That's nice. : ) We have music playing & the TV/VCR/DVD techno-stuff is all working too, thanks to Scott!!! We will be auditioning furniture, curtains & "home goods" for a while until we have made a new nest. But, for now it's ALL good!
We also survived my brother & his girlfriend's visit. : ) We had a marvelous dinner @ Fayette Street Grille last evening. That just "made it" quite nearly as perfect as possible. Good food & a couple bottles of wine can make ALL the difference!?
Mare - I have dishes packed up for Joanna, if she's interested...?! I did have a few casualties, 2 cups & 1 bowl. Everything is waiting for pick up in our potting shed... It's a place setting for 12 with a couple serving pieces too. The dishes are by Johnson Brothers in their Snow White Regency pattern. They are just simple ironstone dishes with swirled edges. Plain, but nice, & functional.
I also have up for dibs, if anyone is interested, assorted other dishes, bowls, glasses, & stemware, & I have a complete set of dining room furniture...4 chairs, a table with a leaf & a china cupboard. If there are no takers, things will be going to a thrift shop. The dining room furniture can go piece meal, it does not have to go as a whole set. Let me know - anyone!!!
I think that's about it for now. Time to heat some soup & then tuck in for a nap. Enjoy your evening.
Cath - thanks for offering to host on Tuesday. I think I can be there. Scott has an AM appointment on Tuesday & we'll see what this white weather brings.. But, I am planning on being there & looking forward to it!!! ; )
