Today was really a day of ups and downs. After hearing yesterday that the bank had rejected the offer for the house, and being despondent about that, I heard today that they’d resurrected it from the grave and presented a counter-offer. Because the timing is so essential on this, every single minute counts!I love the thoughts and suggestions that everyone is offering and each and every one is being carefully considered. Once again, I’ve tweaked the schematic and added a few items. I am trying to work up an inventory of what I have and what I need. That’s a lot harder than I thought it would be!
Here are some pix of my current house. Bedroom: keep the bed and two dressers. The new house has three windows! Living room: keep the sofa and two ottomans (ottomen?) and a small chair. Slipcover sofa. Figure out where to hang the Chinese silk painting. Book case (if not this one, another one) in the library/dining room.Guest room: keep bed, but make a day bed? Even though most friends are polite enough to stay in hotels, I think that it’s good to have a spare bed at the house.
Maybe use the barrister’s bookcase for fabrics? Where does the sweater collection go? Use table in workroom. I love this chest of drawers and mirror, so maybe in the library/dining room? But where? Suggestions and all good wishes are welcome!
