First of all I'd like to say a great big
to all the awesome folks who stopped by my blog last week and left comments.
I hope you know I don't blog for sympathy, but for understanding.
I blog about the whole earthquake thing
hoping that I can give a voice to what others are thinking.
I kinda figure if I feel like this others may too.
If you don't mind I'm pretty sure there will be more posts this week too
it's just so raw feeling at the moment.
But today here's something a bit light-hearted....
When you walk in the back door of our house (we don't have a front door)
you walk into a room we call the sitting room,
although weirdly there is nothing to sit on in there
apart from Annie and Archie's tiny little chairs.
Anyway it had become a bit of a dumping ground
and as I accidentally brought another tea-trolley off trademe,
I thought this room could have three!!
and moved the play oven (which we used as a cupboard) out of the house.
I got rid of the box of Christmas decorations (ahem)
and the box of food from the caravan out to the
disaster zone garage.
I got rid of the little book case which sat on the table
and moved all the little dogs (with their blu-tacked bottoms) to the windowsill.
Ta-da! doesn't that look like an inviting art department for the smalls??
Also here's the "on my wall" bit.
I love the game boards on the wall (an idea I borrowed from Pip Lincoln)
Doesn't that look cool?? It's my favourite part of this room.
I like all the pens in the milk bottle crate,
mixture of jam jars and a spaghetti tin!
Annie is so happy with her tidied up space
and has been sitting down every now and again to do some "writing"
Pop over to Vic's and see some more walls!
