Early morning light just before my visitors, Anita from and Katherine from , arrived a few days ago. Nothing too precious (I have a blind husband and a big fat guide dog remember), everything thrifted, eBay or secondhand store except my splurge on a beni ouarain, my PNG totem, some lack shelves on the wall and the cane stools we had made in Bali. Still need curtains and a pendant light but it is slow and steady at the new old house. Everything will come in time. This is the room’s winter incarnation. The focus was around the firplace. I can feel a change coming on for summer.
