I'm In!

Wednesday, 12 November 2014


I finally moved house!

Now you might be expecting lots of beautiful interior pictures but you'll have to make do with some arty closeups instead.  The house is still in quite the state of chaos and mostly looks like this:


However, those cardboard boxes contain four shiny new Billy bookcases and once I've got them finangled together, I can actually start to make the house take shape. Oh my, I have a lot of books. This is about half the collection still waiting to be moved in.



The carpet fitters did their thing last week and everywhere looks super lovely, but there's still one room to finish so currently there are bits of bed frame and other assorted stuff everywhere. Carpets though: yoicks!



It'll all come together over the weekend, I'm sure. For now there are small pockets of loveliness dotted around the place and that's keeping me going.

  2. Aw I'm so happy for you! You'll have a lot of fun organising all your books, and now a lot of the big jobs have been done it won't take long until it feels like home. Can't wait to see more interior pictures as it all comes together. Have a sudden urge to send a housewarming gift.
