Saturday shopping

Today was a good day.
This morning we braved the cold wind, grabbed ourselves some coffees, and bought .....


... a new house! Hooray!


Well, it's not exactly new - it's a little cottage built in the 1920s, in a leafy, quiet street. Here is my new sewing room:

our new bedroom:


and the bright and sunny sitting area:


We're looking forward to having more space - it's been quite a while since we've been able to host dinner parties or lazy lunches for our friends. Our new house has room for entertaining, three bedrooms, a decent bathroom, and quite a bit of space outside. We're planning to renovate the kitchen and maybe add a couple of rooms in a (non-obtrusive) second storey. Godfrey has lofty ideas for his new shed, and I've already planned the garden in great detail.....

The next step is to sell our current house - anyone looking for a Victorian terrace in Brunswick?

Gorgeous house, congratulations!

It looks quite small and cute from the outside yet there's tonnes of space inside...

I don't quite know how to tell you this Juddie, but I think your new house might actually be a Tardis. :)

Gasp :o
Congratulations! What an adorable house! So bright and airy looking with the whitewashed floors, and the lovely stained glass windows. I also love how the living space is half tile where it leads outside.
Can't wait to see more. Happy decorating and entertaining! Makes me wish I didn't live on the other side of the globe!
