I just wanted to show a few (not great) photos of my house and the little bit of decorating I have done
I leave tomorrow for the US, so didn’t want to put too many things out, since I won’t actually see them
this is the scene outside my front window-
I live in a tiny little alleyway......so quite a few people walk by right outside the window
at night there are little crazy blinking blue lights
I spent most of the day at home - it has been raining all day.
so I made a litte fire in our "rustic” fireplace
it was a lot more glowy and sweet in real life
the opposite wall is one of my husband’s chilli plants drying
when we lived in Germany, and he was able to grow many, many chillies in the hot summer sun,
our ceiling beams would be covered in hanging chili plants!
here in England, in our sad little north-facing postage stamp-sized garden......this is all we managed
the fireplace mantle has a few birds and a garland on it -
very toned down compared to the last two years
and......the most exciting of all:
we finally got the shelf up in the kitchen!
was so exciting unpacking things I haven't seen in years!
still no place for the cookbooks tho
we have another single shelf, but didn’t measure it......
and it is too long to fit anywhere! oops
well, that’s about it
see you in the States!
I hope everyone has a lovely holiday.......
thanks to everyone who has come to my blog and commented on what I have been doing -
or to just have a look
I appreciate it so much
