I always have to mend my clothing the morning I want to wear it. Do any of you other vintage lovers find this to be true? Little holes are always popping up in clothing that is 50-60 years old. This particular sweater tends to get small holes around the neck. My grandmother wore it in the early 60's and it is one of my most favorite sweaters. It is so light and perfect for summer. I've always loved the combination of red and mint. I kind of want this to be my kitchen color scheme someday in our home- wouldn't that just be the bees knees? I have all these retro decorating ideas for our home that will probably never come to fruition-but it's fun to dream right?
We closed on our house on Friday! It is officially our home :) We had our realtor and friend take some pics of us on Friday to commemorate the occasion. The closing actually took a really long time. We were supposed to close at 2 pm and didn't end up leaving the office until around 5 pm. We gave our banker a pretty short time frame so they were still getting papers and such ready with the underwriters. It was a close call! In the end though all of the papers were signed and we had the keys to our home.
We spent some time Friday evening at the house cleaning and getting prepped to move this week. The house was actually ridiculously clean-the previous owners left it in wonderful condition which is always such a blessing! We just basically wiped down everything and vacuumed so it could be ready for when we move in.
Another exciting thing happened too. On our way to do a final walk-through on the home we stopped at a garage sale just down the street from our new place and found something we had been looking into buying for a while-a new couch! It is one of those huge L-shaped couches that will go in our basement and will be perfect for company! It was totally a fun surprise. We got a great deal on it and we only have to move it down the street! I love that God likes to bless us with little happy things like that :)
Today will be packing like mad and preparing for a family gathering on Sunday. My sister who has been gone for nearly a year on a mission trip is coming home on Sunday! I absolutely cannot wait to see her and it will be great to have everyone together again for the first time in a year :)
Feeling blessed :D
My mouth is filled with thy praise, and with thy glory all the day.
