Precious things that make a house a HOME
With all the closets put together and the finishing details done, it was finally time to bring in the boxes of books that we had temporarily stashed in our storage locker. They almost completely filled the back of the car when I went to pick them up on Sunday.
One by one, we ripped them open, placed the books on the IKEA shelves and then flattened the box. After about 15 boxes, the shelves were near capacity and all of our books were back with us. The flattened box all went to the recycling centre.
Yesterday I dashed out to the storage unit to get our "precious" art.
The very last thing to come back will be Heather's collection of house plants. They have been lovingly cared for by Brian and Dale Fea in Okotoks these past six months. God bless them both. That final touch of having a few living, breathing, green things on table tops and counters will be the piece de resistance in turning house into home.
