Home Sweet Home

Joined a hiking club. Met some good, fun people from the club and from work. I like where I live, alot. Like my students and my coworkers. Still love being a speech therapist but feeling the need for some inspiration. Hopefully I'll get that at our annual conference next month in San Diego. Work has been taxing, tiring and trying but really I just need to kick it in gear.
Here are the long ago promised photos of my cute little cottage. Decorations, curtains, basically everything you see by Older sister.
Love my Wedgewood stove and vintage sink. Still love my Alaskan brewery pint glass collection.
Love my bargain living room. Love my couch and extra storage coffee table. Everything bought second hand for $145. Top that.
Love my Formica table and the pink chairs Sister just happened to have sitting at her house. Don't love the ladder but getting used to it. Love the butcher block with drawers in the kitchen.
Love all the windows. Love that my dresser from my SF apartment makes a nice entry with more storage. And that it was free. Love Hieronymus Bosch painting in my old art book.
Love my Ball Jars as a solution for food storage. Love my tobacco tin as spice storage. Love my antique yellow fruit bowl. Love how my handmade by The Sister curtains let the light in. Love the view from that window. Deer, ravens, blue jays and squirrels like to hang out there. LOVE the stackable washer and dryer on the back porch.Love my split personality home. My pink alarm clock and my "side table." Don't really love the air mattress but a rug under and a memory foam topper were a big help.Love that my down comforter was retired and has been camping all through Alaska but made the perfect comeback in my tiny bedroom.
Love the view out the back row of windows. Love thinking that I'll have a fire with family around it at some point. But most of all, love that the beach is two blocks away and the sibs are two hours away.

But, don't go getting any ideas. I'm here for a good time, not a long time.

I love it, too! HOw is the bathroom? And, what are those 2 random faucets leading to a countertop doing in the kitchen?
This is an awesome place, Deb. Waaay bigger than a camper. Clean and cute. Nice work.

Thanks for posting! I've been missing you a. lot.

You're so observant. There's actually a sink under that countertop that the washer runs into. The bathroom is pretty awesome. Nice and big with a huge closet. But, of course the shower is 2.5 ft square and the showerhead is at about 5.5 ft. It's full of laundry right now or I would've included it.

AHA the laundry is in the bathroom. I was getting concerned b/c the place was so clean I thought you couldn't live there.
It is really cute. I can't wait to come visit!
I was wondering about those faucets too

Well you know I cleaned just for the post. Don't worry, it's a disaster again. You would think that without a lot of stuff, I could keep it tidy, but no.

Don't worry my place is an absolute disaster too. I wanted to clean it today but fell asleep w/ a baby on my chest

How did I manage to miss this post! I love your new place. It has such character and really not much to just "deal with" which can be the draw back of little old places with character.
