Well, Christmas may have officially been on the 25th, but my Christmas came on the 26th. I have been waiting since September for this day and my French antiques finally arrived. If you follow me on instagram or facebook then you already know how exciting this day was.
The truck driver asked me if we had any bolt cutters? Why yes, I always carry those in my purse. Not! The bolt above had to be cut to open the container. Luckily one of the guys helping us unload went and got a pair close by.
Lots of boxes were wrapped and sitting on pallets attached to the bottom of the container.
The truck driver let us go ahead and put everything straight on a trailer instead of in the warehouse and then the trailer.
Thank goodness for these strong guys with good backs.
My huge buffet.
And I got a pair of benches.
I unpacked everything after it was in the house and it took me all day. I had to clean each piece as they were all covered in dust and grime. The farm table has replaced the yellow one and I love it, but it will take some time to adjust to the new look. I don't know about y'all but once something has been in place for years and it gets changed it looks a bit off at first. It is growing on me though. I think I may order another pair of the red buffalo check panels and replace the burlap ones. I need some more color.
Shirley and her husband came Friday night to pick up her things and on Saturday after breakfast her stuff was loaded into their van. Then we played house a bit in my house and then they were on their way home. Her hubby threatened to leave her if she didn't come on.
Now I need to put away all the Christmas decor.
Remember Monday night we will have the Wow Us Wednesdays party since it falls on New Years and it will be for y'all to share your 2013 top projects so get those ready and share them here.
I'm looking forward to it.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
