In keeping with the spirit of our house tour…
And so far you have seen, amongst a couple of other bits and bobs…
and a few others…
I thought I would show you our Grand Entrance this week…
Up a couple of stairs and in you go…
Well there’s the door that we never see because we never actually close the door!!!
And the cutest light that looks like it has been there forever, it was certainly there long before us!
Now ever since we moved into our house we have had a bunch of boxes outside our front door for sitting on and storing things like our se7en bags.
But just lately I have wanted somewhere comfier to sit, especially in this spot, which is warm and sunny in winter and cool and shady in summer – perfect!!!
So this week I whipped the couch out there and it has been brilliant!!!
Opposite the couch is our inherited workbench and do we love it, it is great for little collections and storing my sisters art…
Fabulous for library books.
The workbench is also good for public transport and that’s why there is a collection of cushions and blankets – building materials for buses and trains, ships and shuttles… you name it it has been it!!!
Not to mention our entrance is good for watching the sea.
And the moon:
It is the perfect spot for spying on kids:
And even on the neighbors.
Now, during summer it’s the coolest spot in the house but it is also great when it rains in winter:
And you can rig up a swing…
It is brilliant for a hammock…
All in all we need a trip to the library to collect some fresh books and we are all set for a long hot “cool” summer!!!
More house touring to come!!!
