Home. My home.

My home.

After the ordeals of this weekend's move, the unexpected sadness... I thought I was supposed to feel good about being by myself, after all it's all I wished for these last months. But no. Thankfully I'm not the kind to gravel, so I built furniture and started (and got quite far in) making this MY home. Most of the things my ex took with him when he moved out were in the living room, guest room and "office". I focused on getting the living room and the office in order. One great thing is that the new office/work room has a very long desk where I can fit in both computer and sewing machine. Hello creativity! And speaking of creativity, the living room corner below is my inspiration corner. It makes me happy just looking at the picture.

Fashion magazine stacking NYC style, my easel, a camel saddle that my grandfather got on one of his business trips decades ago, and my dads old banjo (in it's case). (And Totoro!) I love this corner. The only change I'll make here is put a very colorful painting where the ships are now. Something Chagall-style. I just need to find me a very very big canvas.
Finally two bookshelves! I do need to get the art up on the walls though.
The sewing corner of the office. Pattern collection sorted by decade, and loads of pattern magazines.
 My office/sewing room. This used to be the darkest room of the apartment, so you can imagine how happy I am about this solution!

So, just a small update, but I'm so happy with the results so far, I really wanted to share :)

Have a great week everyone!
