After not blogging for a month it feels kind of strange to be back?! I feel a bit alienated from the blog world. But I'm sure I'll pick up my old blog addiction soon enough. And I look forward to catching up on all of your lovely blogs!
'I don't mind moving' I said a few weeks ago. And actually I didn't back then. Hmm... I should have realised we never owned that much stuff before! Pfff!
Anyway, the new house is great and everything is unpacked by now. That means I can start on the best part of moving to a new house; furnishing and decorating (although it probably takes a few more months for me to realise all my ideas)!
This is the first little project I finished. I painted a few vintage doilies and stiffened them. As you can see in the next picture, they make a lovely room decoration I think.
This is one of my favourites parts of the new house. The dining room. I love the skirting on the left wall and the little vintage gas heater.
Remember my Hyacinths? They are getting there.
Hopefully they'll show their nice, purple flowers before we are flying to Europe for our family visit/ holiday in a few weeks time.
The dining and living room.
You might think we eat heaps of lemons, but although we don't mind lemons, we are not able to finish them all! They are just for decoration...
...because the tree in our garden has hundreds of them!!!
Have a look at the garden... it's massive. In a couple of years one or two new houses will be built here. By that time we will be long gone. But for now we'll try to make the best of it (the garden has been neglected for a while). We're already enjoying the space and freedom this house offers. Compared to the previous apartments we lived in (both with tiny balconies) this is heaven!
Now we just have to wait for the summer to come.
I can picture myself sitting here in a few months time, surrounded by lovely flowers, sipping a glass of wine and feeling absolutely happy!
