Moving....One Box at a Time
One of the many upsides of moving, is finding treasures in the storage room. I bought this vintage telephone many years ago at an estate sale. In all my years of collecting, it is the only item I have ever bid on. Most of my finds come from "junk stores".
The telephone is in exceptional condition and still contains the original workings inside it.
It has finally found a home in Das Kleine Haus, on the prairie.
This is an arrow back bench that has also been tucked away in the storage building. It is not vintage, but I bought it when my children were just babies. It is now, sitting in the dining room of my new home.
A vintage desk chair is waiting for the desk to arrive later in the week. The desk chair, is the actual chair I sit on when writing my blog and adding chapters to my novel.
Looks like Circa late 1800's.......
Plans for the Reading Nook, on the top landing of the stairs, are already spinning around in my head. I've brought an over-stuffed chair and ottoman from the farm. My writing desk will be in the space where the desk chair is sitting.
Boxes are filling up spaces in every room. More boxes and "odds and ends" furniture will be arriving this week.
This enough to keep me busy until the sale is final on the farm.....
