Just a quickie tonight for you gorgeous Planetarians. I have been so touched by your kind comments on my last post. I’m thrilled so many of you are enjoying seeing our new home. I’m not the boastful type but aged 40, I’m so delighted to *finally* have a place which truly feels like home. We’re still in the middle of The Great Unpack and life is so bittersweet at the moment with my darling Dad’s health deteriorating rapidly. But as he always says to me “Don’t worry about me. You have your own family to look after. Enjoy settling into your new home”. So here are a few shots I’ve snapped this week.
Here are my birdies, chirping sweetly in their new home. In the absence of a window ledge, they are currently perched on the kitchen bench until I find a better spot for them.
And here is Charlotte (the birdie I thought about painting here), waiting patiently for me to sort out my *room of my own*.
Here’s something else familiar to you.
And some more hearts to add to Tina’s. Yes, this one is from Aznew Interiors, similar to those which you saw here.
And another, inscribed with ‘Love’. Hmm, it was very tricky not catching myself in the reflection ☺.
We’re starting to get the playroom organised. Hmm, Quicksilver Sam soon rips these off the door!
The pixies are really enjoying having their own nook for creating, playing, drawing and reading.
Here’s our front door knocker. I’m smitten with it. Its knock is so resounding. Forget those new-fangled electric doorbells!
Here it is, in situ. See that ghastly (broken) plastic doorbell to the left? That’s going. The electrician agreed with me on that one!
And here’s a close-up of that gorgeous glass.
To think that I was considering ditching it only a few weeks ago! Hmm, something about not judging a book by its cover springs to mind…
And here’s one of today’s touches – a lovingly purchased fleur de lis doormat. Just perfect for old Francophile me!
And a close-up to round this off. *Sigh*. I really am loving putting my stamp on this place…
Don’t worry – there are plenty more photos to come!
