As a sort of belated housewarming/”you’re-going-to-inherit-it-anyway” present, my Grandma sent us some antique family furniture from New England. It arrived this morning. We’re beyond thrilled and, as Aaron said: “This is so great that nobody had to die for us to get all this!”
Here are some pictures for the three of you I’ve been texting this morning:
My great-great aunt was the Miss (Lila) Wright in question; her brother Guier Scott Wright, my great-grandfather, was the headmaster. My great-grandmother, Dorothy Francelia Battles, was the Latin teacher. Amo, amas, amat, and all that.
This chair is just place-holding in the nursery right now. A rocker from the Bailey family will eventually go there (still with the footstool).
Aaron also said, “Now we really need hardwood floors and throw rugs.” So ripping up carpet is definitely in our future. Just not the immediate future, as Aaron’s been busy shoring up security due to a recent burglary, and after that he will get back on digging and building in the garden. Speaking of which, I need to go transplant some seedlings.
