There are still some unopened boxes tucked into the corners of the living room and our bedroom.
The garage contains other boxes.
At this point I've lost my will to open them and to organize the garage.
I should make myself start tackling that later today.
Most of the unopened boxes are filled with dishes, ironstone, and decor.
In this new to us house, we've chosen to make the small family room off of the kitchen into a large dining room, and to make the formal dining area/living room into one large living room.
That being said, the fireplace that faces the dining room is being turned around to face the living room, and all of the kitchen, dining room, living room, entry and hallway will be getting new hardwood flooring.
So, there's not a lot of seasonal decorating going on until after these huge projects are completed.
However, I had to add a simple homage to autumn's arrival on the dining table.
I used my new 1761 bread board as the base.
When we were in London I admired a breadboard just like it at Harrod's.
I was tempted to shlep it home with me on the plane until I saw the price, about $200 U.S.!
Then I noticed it was made in the U.S. A. and had to laugh at me wanting to bring home a souvenir from London and that I picked something made here!
I looked up 1761 bread boards when I got home, and used some birthday money to buy this one.
I love it, and though it was made and purchased here,
I'll always remember the trip to Harrod's in London where it first caught my eye.
