ROOM WITH A VIEW


Yes we are on the move AGAIN - after living here on the farm for the past year (which we have loved) , my yearning to live near to the sea again has been the catalyst to us finding a coastal rental property. The photo is taken from the upstairs master bedroom. We will be moving at the beginning of May.

The house is a lot smaller than the one we are living in here at the farm - so drastic decluttering measures have been called for - but surprisingly enough, getting rid of a lot of "stuff" we have been moving around with us over the years, has been very freeing and made me realise "stuff" does not make a house a home!

The spare room which will become my craft studio is not big enough for both a spare bed and my craft table so getting my priorities right (smiles), the spare bed has to go.

Also counting down to our vacation to the States - can't wait to renew special friendships which were cemented 2 years ago. We leave mid June and won't return to New Zealand till beginning of August.

With moving, art is taking a bit of a back seat at the moment - but my craft studio will be one of the first rooms to be set up and the internet connection will be up and running asap too.

what a lovely view Wendy! we scaled down coming here and it does free you up, you don't need all the clutter accummulated over the years! My craftroom becomes our son's bedroom when he comes out each year, we just put down a mattress on the floor!
Good luck with the move and have a wonderful time in the US! go well, {hugs} Nettie

What a paradise. I bet you can't wait. NO doubt much inspiration will come from gazing out on the sea. Have a safe move and a wonderful trip to the US.

OK, I am officially insanely jealous. What a beautiful view. I can imagine how wonderful it would be to wake to that every morning. NZ is definitely on my list of places to visit. And de-cluttering and purging is very inspiring. Nothing like lightening your load for the journey.
