It seems that I’ve been very absent from this space for a while now. Not with intention. Life has a way of throwing up a surprise or two. A change of direction. A new path.
As everyone else dives headlong into Christmas, with shopping, and home decorating and parties. We here have been packing boxes in preparation to move from our home.
I have loved this home probably more than any other we have owned. It is the smallest and oldest home we have ever lived in. But it’s filled with amazing character and I have loved decorating this space with vintage finds and unusual pieces, it’s taken me 5 years. We have laughed and danced, in this home. We have also faced many a challenge. We will miss it. But look forward to what lies ahead.
Here is a little peak into what we created in this beautiful 80 year old home.
I really wish now I had *before* photo’s. We have re-done every surface, painted, patched and repaired. It became apparent very quickly that my new favourite shop would be my local op shop (which made me super happy as I have been op shopping since I was in highschool) and the challenge would be to collect individual pieces that supported the age of the home without being “old and granny”. It’s comfortable, warm and so easy to live in.
I am looking forward to the challenge of decorating a newer home with all these collected pieces.
So with that, I hope that you will excuse the quietness and I look forward to chatting about renting, furniture challenges, decorating on a budget as well as the usual crafty/family chat.
If you have any questions about renovating/collecting/furniture choices etc please leave a message I’d only be too happy to answer.
