It’s been a while since I’ve done a house tour post. The past few months have been all sorts of crazy, trying to balance full-time parenting with full-time work and trying to keep some semblance of a clean house. Needless to say I get way too little sleep, my house is definitely not clean 99% of the time, we eat way too much take-out, and I haven’t touched a house project in months. Oh and my caffeine addiction has reached a whole new level. But Christmas is less than 6 weeks away and – gosh darn it – I’m going to have my house look finished, oh you know, 14 months after we moved in.
So this week I started with the office. It’s become the room where we throw things that ( a ) we don’t know where to put, and ( b ) we don’t feel like tidying up at the moment. So, basically, one giant dumping ground. Which is a shame because it’s actually one of my favourite rooms in the house. It gets a lot of natural light and looks out onto some beautiful trees and greenery. Plus it’d be nice to actually, you know, work in there from time to time.
But enough with the rambling and onto the good stuff: pictures!
I painted / sketched all the artwork (this ballerina and the various portraits). It’s been years since I’ve picked up a paintbrush or a charcoal pencil and, as I was putting this room together, I was reminded how much I miss that. The “do more of what makes you happy” poster as well as all the little pieces of art I created are a reminder to myself to bring back a little part of the old me, the pre-kids version of myself who loved to draw and did it often.
