new rooms, a new winter cloak, news in general

we start in OBK's new walk-in-closet, he's excited, delighted and feels a little spoilt! not only can he now enjoy the closet itself, there's light and a brand new woolen cloak, as seen above and below: turquoise, purple and a touch of neutral natural tones; exactly warm enough for Autumn, he still has his really heavy woolen cape for the deep dark cold in Winter, I'm told we are going to have a proper one this year: snow and ice
hi there!

checking himself out in the mirror



Below right: Mr. Mole's glass house is dangling safely, he prefers living down below as he's used to crawling about in the dark. To the left there are now three 'swinging' rooms, the shop has moved from right to left; two 'swinging' rooms to the right: the large one is the new sewing room! There's lots more space and room for storage, a basket full of fabric scraps, several shelves and so much wall space for hanging stuff, excellent lighting.....oh we do love this new room






I am still very busy setting up my own business and visiting the old folks.....at times very demanding and tiring, but these things have a way of balancing my emotions and it's good to have positive things to look forward to rather than focusing too much on the sad side of life; as always the Dwelling's inhabitants keep me amused and occupied.
There's never a dull moment in the BirdHut, ha!

now there's a suggestion Grace! I feel there should be at least one official guest room.....I'll propose as much tomorrow

I think your inner world is rich and you're some kind of genius.
Love this house and all who live there.

The Dwelling looks great, all spruced up! The sewing room is all set to inspire :) Glad the old folks are hanging in there and you are as well. xo

Here you are again and such deliciousness, I'm totally uplifted. I look at the shots with my magnifying glass and get a real feel for being there. How swell that a guest room might be another addition at some point. Thank you for the pleasure of this post.

such a wonder-full cabinet of curiosities ... and no surprise that the stitch studio especially delights ...

love the new sewing room !

Saskia said...

thanks Patty, the house is improving with time and patient effort; not sure I feel I am a genius though.....
absoluut Maria!
'sprucing up' was the expression I was looking for Nancy, as ever you know what I mean; a relief to know you are well as well, relatively speaking.
it's truly good the Dwelling has the power to uplift others' spirits Michelle; it sure helps me when I'm feeling low.
it's so light, bright and spacious Liz, the Dwellers love to drop in and rub their grubby little paws on the soft cloth, getting in each other's way at times, it's a miracle they get any sewing and stitching done, hahaha
thanks Mo, so do I;-)
