Finally! The long weekend here gave me the chance to make some finishing touches to the house and I wanted to share a few progress pics. Lovely to actually move into a house in the US with furniture as opposed to last time when we had two suitcases and an air mattress! The above is my favorite wall - finally, a gallery wall after years of blogging about other peoples'! I'll take some more up-close pics at some point if you're interested, but it's a refreshing feel after a pale wall of nothing these past few weeks. And yes, these photos are terrible, but perhaps better than nothing? One day I'll get a camera and not a phone...
This is to the left of the wall, computer cords just to keep it real. We get really nice light through this window and a lovely breeze from the front door, too. It makes me unspeakably happy.
And the right of the wall - you can see the fireplace in the corner, which I'm still really working out what to do with.
Here's our gold-toothed walrus, our house spirit who keeps watch for us. Those are badly lit fairy lights in the hearth which we light at night.
Our drinks table, and a very special sculpture to me by our good friend Oliver Tanner.
The lounge room. Much smaller than our old one, but cosy and sweet to me. Sorry - this one is a little blurry.
Hope you enjoyed a mini-tour! More to come in the coming weeks when I can work out how to photograph a bedroom :)
