While I love our new place - and it will indeed be the house of my dreams someday, our home of 9 years back on 27th Pl had achieved the kind of us-ness that can't be conjured up in the few months we've been here. I long for that Viking stove too, dammit! Anyway -- I need a place to be able to see these shots all together too as we have some new clients doing a more Moroccan themed house and some of our old rooms seem right for them.

|I got a wee bit of time before everyone arrived to make a pretty little moment or two.|
|The before table.|
|The twins even held hands for a brief moment for the camera. :)|
|Finny and his Bunny|
|My camera was having issues - but I had to include this just because Gigi and Ol look so cute.|
|The after table.|
|And we even made it to my sister's house after - and man, it wore us all out! But doesn't Doug look handsome!|

Just got back from India - the only place in the world where I may actually be able to afford some of the things I need for the house...
Gate shopping: I found a few pair - I think for the back entry - the most affordable of which are pictured second - they are a copy of the gates at the fabulous guest house where I stay in Jodhpur - Inn Season - which a friend of mine made for some German guy six years ago who never came through. My faves so far are those pictured first here, however. I think they may be just the thing - although I await the measurements to be sure they will work.
Of course I still want gorgeous wood ones for the front - feast eyes on those below... Especially the last pair - oooo!

Totally completely unrelated to the house - although it was our first big gathering - and almost a house warming -- but I really just want to post some photos of Linda's fabulous alien invasion brownie cake extravaganza on Pinterest and I have to have them on a site to reference -- so here they are! I am going to get back to this blog once we get through this hot ass summer and get to work on the house again. I cannot wait to plant things and work outside -- and get moving again!
Meanwhile - Happy Birthday my Ol -- 6 years old I can hardly believe it...

Filigreed amber lace illuminates our front hall tonight for the first time -- our new Moroccan lantern hung today by Doug is making me fall in love with this house all over again. The smallest details can sometimes make the biggest impact. The vision of the house as a wanderer's retreat - a collection of our travels and tales - a place to plan new adventures - it seems attainable, in existence even, when you see the delicate shadows play over the stairwell.

We bought this house knowing the upstairs would be kid-land - we knew the living space up there would be perfect for our brood to play and romp and enjoy - little did we know that we would spend all of our time up there too...
It is fabulous to be surrounded by toys and cushions and SPACE to play and relax with the babes and Olv. There isn't too much up there yet except in the "kids' living room" as Oliver calls it. There are 4 bedrooms, two other "bonus" rooms, and the strange outdoor/indoor atrium up there and only a couple of spaces have any furniture in them - but we still roam about up there and really live in the whole kid floor most of the day.
