… or day 3 if you count the day that I posted the pictures from the outside of the house.
today we’re sliding through the big room, which – as I say pretty much every year – the architect mistakenly thought was the lounge/living room and the dining room. Silly him. I use the dominant end as my sewing room and the other as an ancillary living room. You’ll see that bit tomorrow.
For the moment we’re in what is normally my ‘studio’ space.
Because of the small peeps in my life, the main Christmas tree, which is sitting where my permanently-up ironing board normally resides ,
is currently corralled inside a fence made of two elderly wooden playpens on loan from friends.
Hiding behind this tree and virtually unseen – as well as being slightly out of focus – is a bookcase with quilts and some vintage Christmas postcards
More postcards and also part of my collection of nativity sets including the English paper one in the middle from my parent’s first year as a married couple, 1950.
and this year’s acquisition-that-I-couldn’t-resist: an aussie nativity with the cutest round wee koalas.
and to round off today’s visit Chez-Catsmum, this year’s finished queen-size Christmas quilt, which is currently covering my design wall
[ that’s the gridded white batting that you can see peaking out at the sides -
and random animals, on my sewing table, provided purely for scale
Come back tomorrow if you’d like to see the rest of this room.
There may well be shortbread!!
