It's been a bit quiet on the blog recently, but for good reason - we're moving! In just a couple of weeks time we are vacating our tiny 1 bedroom unit by the sea, to set up home and studio in a lovely 2 bedroom cottage with wood floors, an open fire place, and a big garden filled with old trees (one of them has a rope ladder hanging from it - I can't wait to give it a try!). We're only moving to the next suburb so I'm really excited that I'll still be near the beach, and not too far from my favourite op shop : )
In the meantime, I am trying to sew surrounded by half packed boxes and piles of random things that I would like to sort out before the move. I'm also secretly pleased that my growing collection of vintage suitcases (7 of them, at last count) will finally be put to good use : )
In some ways I get really excited about the thought of moving - a new neighbourhood to explore, new rooms to decorate, and a chance to clear out all those things I no longer need. I just keep trying to remind myself of those things when I trip over a box, or look at the very long list of things to do before the move.
If anyone has any moving tips I would love to read them : )
