I have been in my new place for nearly a month now, and I absolutely love it. I have had a request or two for pictures, and since I have Christmas decorations up now, today seemed like a good time. I knew my little cottage was small, but I realized how small when I was trying to get a few of these shots and couldn't fit everything in because I couldn't get far enough away.
First up is my kitchen. It really looks like most kitchens, so I can't say too much about that. I am amused that I have a double oven (that you can sort of see), but no real good place for a table... So I guess that means that I'm set to bring a lot of food to a pot luck, but entertaining is a little tricky. I have cooked more in the last month than I have for quite a while. I guess I like the kitchen that much!
The real downside to the kitchen is the windows, which were behind me in the picture. I guess I should say that the windows are fine, but the curtains are rather hideous. Are you ready for a close up of this awesome pattern? I hope so, because here it is:
Well, you probably didn't really want to see a picture of the bathrooms, but I'm going to show you anyway. The first bathroom I actually like, but I wanted to try to show you how small this thing is.
There is barely enough room to turn around in here. If I come in too far to the right, I run in to the door. Too far to the left, and I'm bouncing off the sink. But I like it because the shower is nice, and unlike the last place, it gets hotter than lukewarm.
Now the next bathroom is extra special. It's just a half bath, but...
Oh, yes. It's pink. Now, I like pink, but this is kind of a pukey pink. And if you are asking yourself "Is that a pink toilet?" The answer is:
Yes. Yes it is. With a white seat. Because, I'm guessing, that they couldn't find a replacement seat that matched that special shade of pink.
I also have a spare room, which becomes my library/office/catch all. It's not really that exciting and you really probably don't need a picture, but here goes anyway:
There's one corner, anyway.
And a quick peek in the bedroom:
I was going to fold down the fleece blanket that I use because it really looks better with just the bedspread, but I thought this lady and my sisters would appreciate the awesomeness of the fleece. (Well, that, and I'm lazy. But Rock Chalk Jayhawk!)
I saved my living room for last because it's my favorite. I really feel like I can relax here.
And from the opposite corner:
My little cottage, just like most of my stuff, is pretty simple and none too fancy, but I like it. Thanks for stopping by! And just to make it a true tour of homes (plural), I'd love to see some pictures of your Christmas trees, too, if you feel like posting one or two.
