IN MY NEIGHBOURHOOD - HOME

It's the last day in Greenjello's Neighbourhood project Go and check out her blog and all the other neighbourhooders out there - there are some great posts and some great photos!

The last day brings neighbourhood "home". So it's time to see some of the corners of my home. I can only show you a few because the bed isn't made yet and the kitchen is full of stuff to take to the Lake District this weekend!

But my living room I love - it's large. I live in an old tenement building which means large rooms and high ceilings. I have a bay window in the living room and am so lucky to have a diret view over the city, River Tay to the sea beyond. The thing I like most about my house is the light - I need my home to be bright!

Now I guess is also the chance to post about the latest acquisition for my home - my new sofa - in fact my first ever sofa (the previous one belonged to my landlord). I bought it a few weeks ago but it just arrived on Wednesday and I am happily sitting on it whilst I type up this post. I just need to get some cushions for it - there are quite a few colours through the mulberry fabric to choose from although I am veering towards bright pink velvet. They would also go with my new rocking chair!





I also love my fireplace, the mantelpiece is always used to show off the latest crafty items, postcards from my friends and photos of my friends children.



Books are another important feature of my home (oh and boxes full of yarn). I love to read (thanks to my bookaholic dad) and to knit........



Thanks Greenjello for organising this week and hi to all the new bloggers I found out there because of it! I will be back to your blogs!!

Don't you just feel like you've achieved some kind of milestone when you purchase your first "real" (not second hand) couch....it's lovely!
