Hey! I’m here. Moved into our "new" house last week. I’ve been up to my elbows assembling furniture and cleaning the place. Then decided that we needed to pay to have the interior painted. So within the next month we’ll have freshly painted walls, ceilings, doors and skirtings. The walls, "Harlem", the ceilings "White on White" and a couple of feature walls, one called "Venus Flytrap" and I can’t remember the other right now. I’d love some wallpaper in our bedroom but will sit on that for the moment.
Also in the midst of choosing light fittings. I’ll try and get some before shots so you can see the before and after, for those of you that are interested. It’s an interesting process to go through "styling" your own home. Choosing where you’ll spend money, what can wait and what you absolutely couldn’t live with. What I do know is whilst we have the momentum and enthusiasm it’s worth being a little tired and feeling slightly overwhelmed by painters, electrician and wardrobe refitters. But dang, not such an unfortunate position considering I’m making these choices for my OWN HOME. Quite exciting.
After a stroll in the yard the other morning I discovered a lemon, apple and pomegranate tree and a few herbs. Very nice surprises. I have plans and visions for a compost heap, worm farm, vegie patch and potentially a rainwater tank for watering the garden. Future considerations, recycling our grey water.
So, no pics for now, but I’m out there reading you all. Crafting wise, little quiet at the moment, but I have a stack of things I’d like to make for home, table runners, napkins, coasters, a quilt for our bed to name just a few.
