Around the house

It was all about "the house" on the weekend. I always forget to to take the "before" photos but this area around the stairs has been a storage dump for anything that we could not find a home for since we moved in! It was piled high with boxes and all sorts of crap. Since most of it has been sitting there for almost 12 months,and we clearly did not miss it or even realise that we had it, the majority of it went into the bin. This gave me a chance to create a bit of a space to display some of my favourite things. It's still a temporary space until we get the right furniture and things (I'd love a red patterned armchair in the corner!) but at least it looks a bit lived in now. Once things warm up again, I will start to put some colour on the walls and get some pictures up, but until then, at least it's tidy!

We did manage to venture out and enjoy the sunshine yesterday, which eventually lead us to Melbourne's ACMI(Australian Centre for the Moving Image) to check out their current tribute to Jim Henson. This man is one of my absolute hero's! I have several books on his amazing talent, and his natural story telling ability is an inspiration. Makes me want to get off my bum and start writing! I have drawers full of thoughts and ideas, but I need to get them into some sort of order! I really do wish we did not have to sleep! I just can't cram enough into the daylight hours!!

Type the rest here

OOOh I was there at ACMI too, looking at the correspondence exhibition!
I think I'll go to the program where the artist discusses writing love letters to his famous idols (does this sound like me??).
The house looks amazing!
PS: check out my blog for some words of wisdom :)

Really like your new corner! It's amazing what organizing can do for the soul! I left a little something for you at my blog tonight. Here is the link...

Have a great weekend!
