If you follow me on Instagram at @LoveVintageWillTravel or @BrocanteTreasures then you have probably seen most of these photos. We have been in our house almost 2 months now. We were very fortunate to get our shipment from storage the day after we closed. That meant we had a table and chairs, beds, and basic cooking and dining utensils.
Our shipment from England moved very quickly and we had the rest of our things less than a month after moving in. Within a week of getting our second shipment I had 95% of the boxes unpacked. Can I tell you we have a lot of stuff? I didn’t realize just how efficient I had been in gathering treasures until I was starting down 30 boxes of china in the dining room alone.
I have been able to get our house mostly settled, but I did have a few good reasons. I wanted the kids as settled as possible before they started school. Jon needed the office squared away so he can do his classes each week. I have an event coming up in October, setting up at Marburger Farm during Texas Antique Week in Round Top, TX. I do have quite a bit of practice unpacking and getting us all settled.
I love how the house is turning out, but I do have plans to move a few things around already. Musical furniture is one of my favorite games. For now I am working on getting pictures hung on the walls and all the books we have sorted around the house. I will have more pictures to come as we continue to get settled.
I try to always tag photos of our house with #HappyHiltonHouse if you are interested in seeing what I am doing with our latest home. Our last house in England was #ourdowerhouse if you are interested at all.
