The house we are living in is very big. The ground floor has a large lounge room when you walk in, then a dining area, then another large dining area, then another lounge room, and the kitchen. The reason there are two living areas like this is because the front lounge is for men, and the other one further back is for women. Since we don’t have the need to keep the men and women apart, we have changed it around a little to suit us. We have made the back lounge room for women, our main lounge. We managed to find some second hand furniture… throw a few quilts over it and it looks like this:
This room actually has curtains that you can draw across for privacy, not that we have used them yet, but you never know, they may come in handy 🙂
The small dining area we have turned into a tv room:
This room is actually a walk through to the other living area, and since we don’t need two dining tables… well, I think this is a good solution. And this furniture sort of matches well 🙂 Also second hand. I think now we have found all the furniture we need… phew… shopping here takes a lot of time! I’ll explain that a bit better another day!
I’ll also show you photos what I have done with the front lounge room another day… and keep going with this little tour of the house….
The other thing that has been taking up a bit of my time and a LOT of Elizabeth’s is:
Yep – a little ball of black fur, rescued from a friend’s backyard. Its eyes were completely infected, and when we took it to the vet he thought she would lose one of her eyes. But he gave us some ointment, and with a lot of TLC and prayers, both eyes have completly cleared up!! She is quite a cutie. Her name is Ameera – Arabic for princess, and she already behaves like one 🙂
I have done a bit of sewing but I will save that for another post 🙂 It is Thursday morning, weekend for us. Cameron has gone off with his mates dune bashing and I am going to head to the sewing room…. happy weekend everyone!
