This morning – early early – the light was a perfect grey. Delayed reaching for my camera while I had a coffee and missed the perfect light.

We have been living in our house on the Little Street for just over a year. I cannot wait to see it finished. This is the year. In the interim I do love this house. Finished or not.

What’s Next…

Oh it’s been a while. But we are back at it. Moving forward inch by inch.

Colour is wrong in this picture. Not grey. Grey green. Baffin Island –  like the kitchen. But I love that you can stand in this spot and peek into the yellow living room and the Valentine Tree and the kitchen desk and the front door beyond. I love the way it all links and flows. It is particularly attractive when all clean and tidy. Which, as you will note, it is not at the moment. To wit. Stuff hanging on the bannister. Cluttered desk. And so forth.
