it's beginning to look like home...

[it's beginning to look like home].. one of the first things I did was set up an altar.. this is my Sacred space.. a place where I will be able to meditate, journal and do other such soul searching stuff...[the walls will eventually be painted, not sure what colour yet.. the curtains are mine that i bought from Inglewood, they are vintage linen and I sewed black pompoms along the top]

John the gyproc king.. working hard to get it finished for us to move into... just patching for the time being.. the walls will all be painted in due course.. I am not rushing, i want to live there for a time before deciding on what colour I wish to paint..

the art room is finished.. well one more coat to do on the window frame..

dutch husband is painting that last coat, it as we speak... [the colours are more vibrant than this.. taking pictures at night is difficult]

and if you ever come visit, we will take tea on this old iron seat, under the old rhododendron tree. i wonder if faeries live here? [behind you can see the neighbours drive.. we plan on putting a fence around the whole front yard, enclosing it & making it much like the french courtyard that I yearn for]
oh and at Villa Maria ~ there are snow drops... !! I found a clump in the garden.. so very much like it was when we first moved to Inglewood.

And once again you remind me of the magic that it is winter down under even as it is high summer here. Snowdrops! Wonderful, wonderful snowdrops.
Blessed be!

Step by step Villa Maria will become more and more your own. You have the best ideas and I'm enjoying watching your progress.

I would like nothing better than to sit with you on the old iron bench and have tea! That would be wonderful!!

While reading your post and then looking at words on your sidebar I was struck that Villa Maria is blossoming into it's greatest wholeness.

Let’s all get together under that tree. heck I’ll sleep under it, pitch my tent!! Thanks for your recent visit and comment. I know you have a lot on your plate right now, but I hope all is going smoothy as it seems to be. Cynthia
