Our new leather couch arrived on Tuesday. It is an ivory colour and blends in beautifully in the kitchen/family room. Today our new high back leather chairs were delivered, same colour as the couch, and they really look good surrounding the smaller antique table in the kitchen dining area. A good blend of old with modern.
It is fun settling in, and buying ourselves these treats. This will all have to end soon. Then reality will hit, and we will close the wallets and put away the cards, and begin to live here normally. But this part I knew would be fun, and well - I think I am just going to love it all!
I think we both feel that we are still on holidays - especially after all the hard work we had to go through to get here! It's like the wonderful enjoyment of waking up each morning on an extended holiday without having to leave home. Only this time, I am unpacking things, rather than packing them! (I hate packing suitcases- would just about do anything else but that!)
Stay tuned - who knows what tomorrow will bring!!
I think I'll go sit on our new couch, and just smell the leather - sometimes it seems I may never grow up--it's the little things in life that give me so much fun!!
