Home Sweet Home!

I only just realized that in all of the frenzy of the past few months, I had all but forgotten to post a few quick snapshots of our new place! Still very much a work in progress, originally dating from the 1800s and heretoforth known affectionately as the shed, it's an adorable outbuilding in a super central semi-historic neighborhood, a stable turned laundrette turned cute baby loft space and my new favorite thing ever... I secretly want to buy it and transform it into the vintage Disney set designer turned Storybook architect style faux English cottage of my dreams, half-timbering and all, but in the meantime:

Here is a beloved Princess Tina folkface pillow surveying its new surroundings...


The polished concrete floors still festooned with piles of winter rugs...


White stucco vintage brickwork and whitewashed original shingles...


Which are going to serve as perfect backdrops for all of our super colorful collections...


One of our favorite features is a row of skylights that extends through the living room and office areas...

I would love to rewire this area with all vintage globe lights, but alas, renting!

Oh, guess who else loves the skylights?


More to come as everything starts to come together, for now we're still unpacking, living in a sea of boxes, and considering a couple of summer garage sales when the sun finally comes out for good here!
