Just a quick update...

Monday, the movers came by on their way to Leanne's new place to pick up the dining room furniture, the china and crystal, and a few other odds and ends.

On Tuesday, I went over and spent the day at Leanne's. While she did a few on-site visits, I unpacked the china and crystal and got her dining room done and dealt with the Shaw hookup. When she returned with take-out, we unpacked the kitchen items. Her real estate agent has 100 large Rubbermaid totes that you can borrow so they had to be unpacked so they can be returned for the next client to borrow. Great idea!

Our building handyman came over in the afternoon and rekeyed her locks and her friend Marly came over and they did a lot of work in the basement organizing the family room.

This morning (Wednesday), my sister Carol and BIL Fred stopped by Mom's on their way home from Arizona. Shirley and I joined them for a good visit.

Then I set about getting my house back in order.

Sorted and priced items from Lorry's estate

Some of the roomboxes, etc., plus all the wallpaper.

The front opening dollhouse, the storage cabinet, and in the red box, an incredible collections of Renwal and other early dollhouse furniture.

Eight more boxes of fabric, ribbon and trims to be sorted, bagged and priced. This is something I can do while I watch TV.
I have some condo business to take care of tomorrow then I'm spending a long weekend rabbit-sitting for Leanne while she gets away for a couple days.

I'll be home Monday but probably won't post till sometime near the end of next week.

  1. Oh my goodness, Maureen! What a pile of work! You must be exhausted. I wish I could be there for that estate sale. I bet there are some incredible finds there. Instead - I'm heading out tomorrow morning for the Montreal show. It's a long drive but so enjoyable at the end of the journey!
