The universe is not subtle
The owl was THAT long ago 🤦♀️? I’m so happy for you that your HOME is drawing near. Xx
“a complicated ache”… thank you for this wording, dear Susannah. I feel that complicated ache too ❤️
Your Pinterest home looks so cosy and gorgeous. A red theme sprinkled throughout too ❤️
"So this home I picture is all mine. Every book, every chair, every speck of dust." OMG this is so exactly what I needed to read right now. I'm at a slightly different point, more like a crisis point, because I'm struggling with maintaining that feeling of "me" in my nest as I consider merging treasures and personal space with another who does NOT share my sense of esthetic. Haven't spent a lifetime building a nest, then divorcing in my 50s and losing that nest, then finding a small cosy new nest and making it my own, I'm feeling ungrounded and a little lost when I should be feeling incredibly happy because I've finally found "my person." I don't know the answer, but your post somehow gave me comfort. So thank you!
was distracted per a personal matter & so an hour later found your story on my screen, just where I’d left you
& started again.. more with curiosity about the photo matrix & looked closer with eyes on
as one who’s done lots of architectural assignments might .. and went looking for the sideboards !
Fine work ! I like / love being surprised .. & good for yer mom too ! 🦎🏴☠️
When's this ADHD housewarming then? 😉❤️
Why am I not surprised you'd like to have a red wall? :) I always wanted a brick wall and a red wall and I made both of them come true and both of them were painted by me. Better a drawn brick than no brick at all :D Wishing you your dream come true before this Christmas.
Love the photos and that you've shifted to a richer red!
You sound happy Susannah, I'm glad for you.
Congratulations on finding your new home! What an exciting time.
Loved this piece Susannah. My favourite this far. We are currently getting ready to sell a family home and move to a new lifestyle. I hope I feel the way you do.
I love this for you and feel it with every fibre of my being. I can see you there already <3
How is it that "countless side tables found in markets" makes a house feel like a home? They sure do, though. ☺️ Can't wait to see where you land!
I see you and celebrate you, Susannah. I've long followed your journey and am thrilled for this next chapter. I'm on a similar path, feeling called to a place that has always called me and that I believe is the right next step after four years of illness, cancer, divorce, and finally, glorious rebirth. Thank you for sharing your heart and inspiring me always. xo
Sometimes a home needs YOU. The amount of events that had to happen for me to be in the home I am in is astounding. And it all hinged on one moment...and curiosity. Finding what a house needs once you get there is the other half of making it a home...and it’s so incredibly rewarding to see a house “light up” because you are there and you are listening. Love how much you already love the house that is waiting for you❤️
The light through those big white windows is 🤤 Calling all this in for you too love!
