my house!

This here is my new house. Yep. There's the front doors. You heard me, doors. One to my studio (I can leave home and go to work!) one to the house, another to a funny little sunroom-that-we're-not-sure-what-to-do-with-yet. That's my soon-to-be bedroom, there with the green carpet. There's my studio space, with the easy-sweep-for-threads floor and sunny windows. There's the backyard. Just imagine chickens and a vege patch, k? Maybe a few chairs and fairy lanterns too, for parties. Actually, just imagine all of these things. I know I am.

It's in Sherwood. Which makes me feel a bit like Robin Hood. (And yes, the name of the suburb was a consideration. Is that crazy? My first choice was the suburb 'Sunshine'!) It is close to the train station, and a grocer, and a library, park and swimming pool. I have a lovely new housemate too, she is very nice indeed, and we share a birthday week. We have a guest room, for friends and family to stay whenever they like, and we're going to have a housewarming party.

I move in two weeks. Less than two weeks. I am freaking out, slightly, excited, mostly, worried, a fair bit. How is moving a small truck a not-so-small way so darn expensive? But things will work out. They will. Won't they? I'm trying to be all zen, and in the meantime;

just look at my house!


  1. You're going to have so much fun, what a great flat garden too, for those parties to spill out onto, love Posie

  2. Yay! Hooray! Congrats. You bought? Which city?! That garden is goona be marvelous! *s*

  3. Cute house! Love the stained glass windows! And good luck with your move..

  4. You have purple windows! LOVE purple windows.....

  5. I love that you have two doors and can leave 'home' and go to 'work'. Sometimes I secretly leave my house, drive around the block and go straight to my craftroom/studio when i get back so I can get into the right mindset of getting to work. Sounds silly right? But it works!

  6. that's a great idea cintism! it's all about the mindset. I was excited when I started to be able to wear slippers to work, but it doesn't always help productivity..
    I'm considering making an open/closed sign for myself too, is that silly?
