we've moved into our new little cottage.
the vintage sheets are bursting out of their cases (the thrifting search begins for more vintage cases).
with one less bedroom and short a sun room this house is certainly more cosy than our last. but i like it cosy and my thrifted vintage pieces look more at home here.
i'm busy displaying the collections. the milk glass has a new spot as does the Pyrex. i'm trying new little vignettes on nearly every flat surface: counter top, book shelf, timber ladder. bringing pieces that have been stored away out to be enjoyed.
i'm keen for new ideas.. i would love to see & hear about how you display collections throughout your home
the mantel is bare. the picture hooks hold no art. the kitchen dresser shelves once sagging under the weight of crockery are temporarily relieved of their contents.
yes it's happening. we are moving. it all happened pretty quickly once we made our minds up.
the collections are wrapped in vintage sheets and tucked snugly into boxes. the other half has done all of the packing so far. while i've been working. making the most of the last of my new grad year and full-time pay.
we have a new little cottage to call home in the southern tablelands of NSW. there's a verandah out the back overlooking the apple tree laden with fruit.
a new home for a new year. i'm looking forward to the change.

it's been a busy and stressful few days. there's been plenty of umming and ahhing deciding where we will call home this year. a move may be on the cards. maybe soon or maybe later on. it is out of our hands at the moment. just a matter of waiting now.
