The door is open...welcome in.
Our first meal in the new home was Thursday night, and we had an extra guest - a friend of Slicer's. Freshly made lasagne, salad and garlic bread on the back verandah, surrounded by the trees....beautiful.
Having that verandah, and being blessed with trees on all sides, brings a soothing calm to the house...
We're still putting things in their right place. When Mr Elefantz and Slicer go back to work tomorrow Blossom and I will begin the real indoor transformation - laying out quilts, runners, and generally adding that feminine touch.
The sewing room was the last room to be unpacked and is almost finished...it leads into the main bedroom through one set of double French doors, and on to the front verandah through another set of French doors. If you look at the front of the house my sewing room is on the right.
This is the view from my bed...pressed tin ceilings all through the house, with gorgeous ceiling roses under vintage styled fans...
Above the doors are fretwork inserts...
...and on top of the bedroom walls are more fretwork, much simpler though. This means there is virtually no sound-proofing throughout the house, but the purpose is to allow cool air flow all through the house during the very hot tropical summers.
I'll share more internal photos tomorrow, or the day after...so I'll close today with Blossom's door. She is safe behind it resting from all the hard work of the last week.
