What I Didn't Show You
What lies behind this door, is what my darling husband and I built for me some months ago.
It is the end section of the garage, which was full of junk, wasn't lined, had no door or window and was filthy with dirt, dust, mouse poo, you name it.
We turned it into this -
My new craft studio!! I have shelving units behind that false wall. This shot is taken from the door.
Here are a few more views.
Doesn't it look so neat and tidy?
But don't let that fool you - I cleaned it up for the photo.
Do you see those little dollies on the window ledge?
My daughter and I made those years ago.
Here is a better look.
I made the green one (it's my favourite colour) and the lovely Miss P made the blue one. (That was her favourite colour when she was little. She used to say "My favourite colour is blue. Sky Blue, but not the blue at the bottom of the sky, the blue in the middle").
This is my mother - I put her to work on her last visit, making paper bead necklaces for the Christmas charity event we held at Church.
And this is me, signing the register at my sisters' wedding - that was why my mother was visiting.
See that bit of sun behind me? Well, that is a miracle that is. Anyone living on the eastern seaboard of Australia this summer (ha! what summer!) will know what I mean. It poured day and night all week before the wedding, torrential rain the night before and morning of, the sun came out an hour before the wedding, and then poured again the next day, and still hasn't stopped.
