The items we had shipped were the cream of the crop, if you will, because space was a premium. We actually haven't seen these things since last fall when we were packing up and selling our house in Missouri. I had to make decisions then of "sell, store, or ship" with our entire household.
We purchased a large storage shed and have it at the house of dear friends in Cabool (thanks, we love you Nick and Faye!) and it contains all the items that were not practical to ship but yet we will not want to replace in the next 10-15 years. Things like our furniture, washer and dryer, electronic appliances, Mark's large power tools, Christmas decorations (don't get Mark started on the amount of those lovelies I have) and so forth.

Mark loved opening all his tool boxes (after being a month here without a pair of pliers!), opened his self-taxidermied turkey fan and beard mount and his fly rods and self bows. I'm excited to see my craft bins of paints and supplies as well as my knives and aprons (Mark will comment on that, because we both know full-well that those knives are his from his head-chef days in Branson!) We were also careful in packing most of the pictures from our walls as these things are familiar and comfortable to us all.
