The house is pretty well set up now. We've hung blinds, bought a TV, security system etc. and are starting to feel quite at home. We had supper out on the weekend with people the Raz Man does business with here, and they have invited us to their favourite Italian joint on Wednesday night. Lat night we met some great neighbours who have offered to keep an eye on the place while we are gone, which makes me feel much better. You feel a bit vulnerable in a new city with no contacts.
What I love about this house are the window sills...still with original tile from 1936 when the home was built. Perfect for all my bits. This large bottle is a Jumbo the Elephant Orange soda bottle. Marbles I picked up in the UK shopping with my Grandad. Baby cups from Mexico.
The guest room. We removed a shelf from behind where the daybed is. I HATE when people don't paint behind things!. This room is quite large and has a window seat (not shown) with a built in cedar lined blanket box. This house is 2 bedrooms. We need places for people to sleep. Hence the daybed in this room. If my kids come and bring friends, it's a good place to extra people to sleep.
Master bedroom....this room is more shaded as there is a covered porch off the french door that is screened in. It has been too hot to open these doors so far, but in cooler months it will be lovely to sleep with them open.
To the left is where we hope to put a pool.........It is very pretty, but quite dark.......
The crew hired to trim back the massive trees and limbs that were overhanging the house......a full day's work for 4 men. The picture above from the balcony was taken AFTER the trimming....you can imagine how full it was before.
