So it's been exactly a week since we've officially moved in. While life feels unsettled and unorganized, it's been mostly good. It's super quiet out here. I didn't really realize exactly how much background noise there was at the other house. I was right off a main street so there were lots of cars, sirens, the TRAIN! and there's a little park across the street. I didn't know how much I was blocking out till I didn't need to.
There hasn't been much time for knitting. I feel that I should be unpacking or cleaning or painting before I do fun stuff. But, mornings I let myself knit for about a half an hour. This sock is coming along nicely. I'm sort of following the Bickersstraat pattern except not doing the purl rows in between the eyelet rows. This yarn is so super soft and I am loving the speckles!
Instead I could put books on there and my scrapbooks? Then I can get rid of one of the bookshelves in the spare room and make room to put the dresser in there. Hmmmm.
Here's the view looking in from the open door. I am thinking my sewing table will go there and maybe have the design wall next to it. You can see it's still kind of a mess. And the boxes with fabric all in the closets :)
So here's the living room coming from the hallway. On the left there you can see the bathroom sink :) Doesn't everyone have one of those in the living room??? ha! I haven't put up curtains yet. I am seriously loving all the light. I haven't put up pictures or art yet. I'm getting a feel for where I might want them to go.
So, this is the bathroom cabinet/vanity. See the wood color on the inside? That is the color that the whole thing used to be. But I decided I wanted white. Well, the color is actually called "polar bear". It was worn and dingy looking and I'm trying to save a little moolah since the whole re-do the bathroom thing was a surprise! I really like it though. I'm going to put a 'satin nickel' pull on the front of the door and the drawers I might do this green glass I found. Unless it looks weird to have different colors then I'll find silver pulls.
Oh! I almost forgot!!! The shower. So much progress has been made but it's not quite done yet. Karla's husband Aaron has been working on it and it looks amazing! I am very blessed that he offered to help. I wasn't sure about the large tile at first - it's 12' x 24'. But, I really do like it. It's bold and I think it makes the shower area look bigger.
