We are nearing the two month mark for living in our new home. There are still things that need work…like fixing an oven, repairing a leak, installing floor mouldings, unpacking books and organising tools in DH’s shop. But whenever we have a few moments on a rainy day, we are at the stage where we can hang pictures, photos or other delights from our past travels.
Here are some things we have installed that make things look like home, not just a different house.
A few of Mom’s favorite Carl Larsson picturesMom’s very favorite by Toshi Yoshida
A very loved work by Durer from 1502
Art work by my college friend
And by another friend who painted scenes from our old farm
A grouping of sentimental favorites
But not all decorations need to be paintings. Here are some treasures we brought back from Haiti.
A group of musicians made from metal
Brightly painted tap-taps in our laundry room
Useful container from my sister…
A shopping list is necessary when ferry rides are required for getting to the stores. (The kids like drawing here as well)Organizing coats and dog leashes…
Nature supplies good decorations too.We have reduced the number of things we hang…an attempt at decluttering. Who knows though, we may discover some great local art one day!
