Today, Belle Grove was buzzing like a busy bee hive!
We had several deliveries as well as a number of visitors!
But most important we have finally received one room of curtains!
(Yes, I said CURTAINS!)
If you have been following the blog, you know we have been working on getting curtains forever! Okay not forever, but it sure feels like it! We received the Madison Master Suite curtains for the main bedroom and the Master bathroom. We didn’t get the tie backs and the canopy, but not to worry! Those will arrive on Tuesday!
Besides the curtains, we received the rug we won at the auction last week!
We also received several new pieces of furniture!
This Settee is one of two that we bought for the Grand Hallway. This one will be downstairs, When we receive the other one, it will grace the upstairs Grand Hallway!
I think it looks quite nice beside the stairs and will make a wonderful place to rest as people come to see us,
This is a mirror we received a week ago, but just got it hung today in the downstairs Grand Hallway!
The Parlor got a number of new pieces!
This is the fan we won at auction last week!
We also received two Victorian Chairs for the Parlor.
We received our other rug from the auction that is now in the Hipkins-Bernard Junior Suite Sitting Room.
We also added some items to the upstairs Grand Hallway. These are two candlesticks and hurricanes that I found on my shopping trip last week.
And this is the table we won at auction last week!
I love the feet on it!
It reminds me of the scroll work on the riverside portico stairs!
I really think it is starting to feel more like a home than every before!
One more thing!
When the ladies were hanging the curtains in the Madison Master Suite,
This needle fell out from behind one the woodwork around one of the windows!
Its about three inches long and has a large eye,
Does anyone know what it could have been used for or the time period from then it could have come?
