A Tour of our Abode

Here it is, our little abode! Some of these photos are from the days after moving in, others are taken on the day of our engagement party (did I mention we got engaged recently?) but you'll get the picture. So above is the outside and the front lounge room complete with open fire place.

This is the dining and kitchen (a little blurry sorry!) complete with chalkboard wall!

This here is my sewing room which is where I'll be creating furnishings/cushions/curtains for our home.

This is the backyard. The previous owners left that swing seat which I love so I'm sure you'll see a post on here where I make a nice cushion for it.

Here's the yard from halfway down and then right down the back. It backs onto a reserve so all you see is bush which is so nice. Ocassionally I sit out on that bench just to hear the bellbirds, kookaburras and the occasional owl.

And finally this is how we dressed up our yard for our engagement party. You may be able to make out the massive amounts of fairy lights strung through the trees as well as all 130 tea light candles that lit up the pathways as it got dark.

I'm documenting this all here because these are essentially our "before" photos. We have SO many ideas on how to do this place up and make it ours so it will be fun to look back on these pictures as our home emerges.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting our house!
