Slowly but surely things are coming together. And they seem to happen one corner at a time. Which is why I'm showing you my kitchen nook and not my studio. Because although I'm starting to sew again (yay! it feels great) the studio corner not quite photoshoot ready, but the kitchen nook is close enough done. Last night, hubby and I made and installed the shelf from some old rimu timber we found in the attic (don't worry, landlord was cool with it). It's doing those little things that are making it into a place we can call home.

The building we are living in is a Heritage Listed building (you can check out a 1915 photograph of her here.) Which is pretty neat and also means that it has slight oddities. Like the funny shaped 'window' above my kettle. The toaster and tea tins sit into a recessed cupboard and then there is a weird little triangle shaped hole above it. The hole looks into the storage cupboard that we fondly call the man cave, because it's housing the man's tools etc. But what is the window for? It has no glass, it's just a hole.
If anyone is interested in the little town where I live, you can visit this website here. It's put together by Julie, a local photographer, who can often be seen wandering the streets with her camera. She has included local history as well as current images. There are some great up to date photographs of the building I live in too.
