Okay, maybe the earth didn’t stand still, but I swear I heard a choir sing “Hallelujah “when I got finished. If you’re a regular blog fan here then you know that for the last couple of weeks I have been saying and
swearing that I would accomplish some things on my “to do list”. The main one on that list was putting together my new bookcase. I can happily say that I got this DONE. I promise after I got finished I done a happy dance around my living room. I was that thrilled about it.
|It sorta resembles a coffin at this point.|
|TADA, all finished and placed in it's place of honor.|
|My Angel that watched over me patiently waiting.|
I must also let you know that it is very important to read and follow directions. Yup, I learned this
after years of preaching to my husband to do the same exact thing. I attempted to follow those directions, but you can see from the pictures that the second piece that was put together didn’t go quite like the pictures shown. It is the main top part of my bookcase. I put it on upside down, but I will paint it and leave it. I was just so happy to finally be doing this that I didn’t care if it was upside or not.
Not only did I accomplish 1 item on my list, but I got a 2nd one done as well. Now you know how truly excited I was and am. I also managed to get my table top cleaned, everything put away and organized and I even got it decorated. WooHoo for me.
I wasn’t sure whether to put any decorations on my bookcase but eventually decided it needed a little something. I remembered I had my birdhouses packed away and decided to use a few of those as accessories. The 3 that you see on the top of the case were given to me from a dear sweet friend before moving here. She knows my love of birds and how I had once collected bird houses. The Lord has truly blessed me with dear friends through the years and for this I am ever grateful.
