One week.......











Hello Sweet-peas!!!

Things are starting to feel less mad here as we are at the end of unpacking and finding new places for everything. Its always exciting to reacquaint yourself with familiar things, so many treasures that have a sense of history with your life story. 
The kitchen is pretty much cleaned and in place, we were so thrilled to find the rimu shelves with wire cubby-holes at a school fair on Saturday. Look at my old agee jam jars in them, perfect.

The view from the kitchen across the open floor area is fabulous, with wonderful light that dances around the space. Its quite memorizing.


One week on........

Yip "St Biddies" is our new home.


LOVE V&W

  3. The kitchen looks utterly fabulous!!! It looks so homely that one could think you'd been there for a year, not just a week! Getting the kitchen set up always seems to be the number one job when it comes to moving. Once that's done, the rest is a breeze in comparison. Thank you for sharing these pics of your beautiful new home, I hope we get wee peeks every now and then. I'm very curious about the giant glasshouse outside - I would love to get my hands into some potting mix and do some vege planting:) xoxo

  8. St Biddies is truly special, how incredibly lucky to have a home that suits you down to the littlest detail. I can see you guys being very happy and settled there.

    p.s Do you mind me stealing the cooking utensils in wicker baskets idea, as I think it is genius and very quirky?
