One of the challenging things about moving so often is that furniture you buy for one house doesn’t necessarily fit well in the next one … or the one after that! Luckily, our sleep number bed fits well and Finn feels more at home back in our bedroom rather than the guest room. This photo reminds me I need to take those pictures off the wall and put some of ours up there.
One of the pieces of furniture that I was struggling to find a place for was the quilt cabinet. We bought it for the Big Canoe condo and when we sold that, it went in the library at the Tampa house. There’s no room for it in the family room but I just couldn’t give it up – I need the storage space for my quilts! So there was a TV mounted on the wall in the corner of our bedroom that we never used and Keith agreed that we could take the TV down and put the quilt cabinet in that corner. That dresser was also from the Big Canoe condo and doesn’t match our bed but I love it and the chest of drawers that matches the bed is in the closet. It doesn’t bother me to have mismatched pieces of furniture and they all hold memories of different places we’ve lived.
Finn was tired after our unpacking so he took a nap while I sewed. I’ve got another 3 yard quilt in progress and just have to add the borders to it. And while we were unpacking and sewing, Keith was driving from Tampa and arrived in time to have dinner with us. So another new chapter in our life begins.
