Right before I moved, my Grandmother moved into an independent living apartment. She has had her own house for many years, but she felt like it was really time to go to a place that provided some meals and on-site medical care if necessary.

As part of her moving process, she gave up a lot of her furniture and other things that would not fit in her new apartment. I got these two great pieces of furniture and the crystal and china that now fills the china hutch. It is really important to me to have family legacy and I have loved these pieces of my grandmother's furniture for many years. I love having them in my new house and carrying on tradition.

The hutch needed a little work, so my dad fixed it and then my parents brought it over this week, but I didn't have a chance to unpack all of the china and crystal until today. This unpacking brings me to the dreaded "almost" finished state. Everything I have left to unpack is stuff I don't want to deal with. All of the little things. Therefore, because it is hot and I have done some work today I am going to go camp out on the couch in the basement where it is cool. Many happy weekends!

Wow! The armoire looks fabulous and it is all done. Nice work. I take it you don't need anymore shelves?
Have fun tonight!

I would like to come over and share a bottle of some nice Russian River Pinot Noir...served up in your crystal glasses.

You are so grown up now! :)
