|They were a dingy almond. Now they look like frosting!|
(It's amazing to discover what creatures of habit we are simply by putting everything in our kitchens somewhere else temporarily.)
Wedding dress completed. √
(Except for the hem. I can't finish that until the bride tries the dress on with her footwear of the day. And I can't post a photo until she sees the dress first!)
Wedding gifts wrapped. √
(Both of my sisters in Oregon and my daughter in Florida sent their gifts ahead of their arrival to be wrapped and delivered so they didn't have to bring heavy extras on their flights. My sofa is covered with wrapped delights.)
Still left to do:
*Load the pots and pans and silverware and sundries back into the painted cabinets.
*Paint the remaining kitchen cabinet (there was nowhere to unload what was in it).
*Calligrapher guest names on the place cards.
*Create a wedding card for my youngest daughter and her husband-to-be. It has to be as special as they are.
*Collect all the items still needed for the wedding (blankets to cover the hay bales, tablecloths and napkins for the dinner tables, coffeepot, canning jars (for candles), etc.
*Clean cottage before leaving so when I return with my sisters in tow we won't all gasp when we open the door.
I'm off and running!
