"Inside my Home"
Because I am nosey. Because I am sure there are many diverse images to this one, considering the different countries and lifestyles of all of us, I think it will be interesting.
So any part of your home, especially if it reflects your character, hobbies, colour preferences, taste etc. Thanks.

We might as well start off with the best. smile Welcome to Cardboard Manor! This is the library...



We've had our house up for sale and finally got an offer on it. A month into the process the buyers' financing fell through. So here we are with a lot of our stuff in boxes (about 75 boxes in all). Most of the downstairs has been packed up and I had just started on the upstairs. Since I don't expect many people to be house-hunting between now and the rest of the year we'll either have to put everything back on the walls, on shelves, in bookcases...or rent some self-storage space. I"m leaning toward self-storage! smile

Holy DOODLE, Sue (and I mean that in an artistic way).

We have a room in the basement that was (originally) supposed to be my "studio". Instead, it has evolved into a space where the husband throws everything he doesn't know what to do with because, God forbid, he should put anything in his pristine garage. He has the nerve to call it MY "crap room", although I haven't added any new residents like unwanted furniture, tools, exercise equipment and 2 vacuums ad nauseum.

I just showed him your picture and told him that this is what a real artist's workspace SHOULD look like (if one could actually open the door LOL!).

(and no, not providing a picture. Did I mention the door issue? lol)

Ertrum, is that real and if so what on earth did you do about it?

This is my dining room. Please excuse the wonky lightshade, the fitting was broken at the time I took the photo, and the dog crate doesn't normally live there either.

It was real. It's a black snake, which is harmless. So, with some care, I caught it and showed it the door.

You may find a picture of that eviction here: http://i1131.photobucket.com/albums/m556/ertrum2/snaksorsist.jpg

Not the current place (we posted our workrooms some time back so added there already) but where we lived from 1965-93 and would buy back today if someone gave me the money. This was the landing looking into my bedroom.

As a follow up to the photos I've been showing of the house conversion in Photo-a-Day, just one more here showing the pull-out larder units ..and what larder is complete without a pot or two of Marmite. smile

This is my bathroom. I like the jungle feel of it, and the contrast between the black and the pastel colors.

Living room, boring after Alex's splendid effort! Just picture me slummocked on sofa, remote in hand.

We recently completely redid our lounge with built in units. I especially wanted a lit display cabinet for the Swarovski figures and I'm really pleased with the results

This was my kitchen just after it was finished. I posted one view at the time but think this is looking the other way

I didn't think I'd have one to post here, as I would have to do at least a bit of tidying first, but yesterday caught Precious at our "entertainment centre", trying to watch a DVD instead of whatever was on TV. She presses the EJECT button, then tries to nibble the tray...



It's also a VCR, and sometimes she will play a tape instead.

(Technically, my office, but no matter)
My daughter drew this a few years back.

Thanks all, Now we are coming up to Christmas (who noticed?) So maybe a few decorated homes for the final week of this theme, although the next one will be Christmas holiday based. Ideas?

This is my tree (brand new) as decorated by my niece.



You can see a present underneath, a gift from one of my American team
mates. I've been good & it's unopened. smile
