Sort of Moved In ... and a Christmas Present

Hello my Lovelies.  Nice to see you here.
What can I say.  ... I've 'sort of' moved in.  Basics only as renos are not complete.  Living room absolutely filled with Ray's boy toys.  I have my bed, night table, chair and small table for the computer.  That's about it.  We will finish after Christmas.
After hauling all my bits and pieces over here the other night, I found a lovely lamp sitting on my night table.  I had been drooling over it at Ray's shop.  There she sat with a card taped to her.  A lovely Christmas gift from Ray.  Absolutely adore her.  She will eventually look smashing in my living room.  What do you think?

That's all for now.  Trying to get a little bit settled.  Feels quite odd.  Thanks for dropping by.  Enjoy the moment.

“I give you this to take with you:
Nothing remains as it was. If you know this, you can
begin again, with pure joy in the uprooting.”
