moving house...

 Two days after Christmas we moved house!  Crazy I know!  Although we were very comfortable in the house we were living in, with a short walk to our shop and with the most wonderful neighbours, we were conscious of the fact that it was a rental ( with all the uncertainty that goes along with that ) and we were ready to sink our teeth into a small renovation project.  After some careful consideration we decided to sell our Brisbane home and buy here in Melbourne - a city we have really grown to love.  Our new house is still close to kindergarten, school and the mondocherry shop, and  most importantly close to Clare and many of the wonderful friends we have made in the last few years.  It is, however, considerably smaller and while we are planning to start  renovating in the next few months to expand a little, it has also been a good excuse to clear out and declutter.  Something I find quite liberating!

While we have mostly unpacked with just the last few boxes of miscellaneous items left ( I'm sure you can relate ), it is taking a while to find the right layout for the rooms.  However, it is amazing how some fresh flowers, my favourite books and a few cushions are helping to make it feel like home already.







Stay tuned for before and after photos...

Moving houses can be really exciting yet pretty tiresome but you seemed to have done it really well. Must say you've done a fantastic job of decorating your new place.
I'm sure you'll come around to unpacking the other boxes too soon or whenever required. Enjoy your new home and congrats to a new beginning at the new place.
