Pictures So Far

Everyone who has read my blog for a while, knows that I love my Cat Cleo. She is my faithful, cute, comforting little companion and adds a lot of cheer and delight to my life.

My apartment, thanks to a very generous and helpful friend, is now 80% box free! However, until I get my IKEA furniture (much will have to wait until the new year as it can only be ordered and I am leaving for Christmas in 2 weeks so it may not get here in time), my apartment will not be fully picture blog worthy. I would rather show it off when it is done, etc.

But to show a little of my best apartment ever... here are pictures of Cleo in my new place:

The love of windows and birds! I decided early on that I would not worry about Cleo being on my desk. She loves windows...

I am pleased with the light blue paint. I am still adjusting to having a different place though. Apparently it takes time!


This is in the living room by the sliding door. I love the gold chair - it was my Dad's chair when I was a child and we placed "spaceship" with the navy buttons during the day when he was at work. Cleo also loves this chair. She is often near by when I blog! You can also see a bit of the green paint that I chose.
It is going to take a while for my new place to be fully set up, but at least I have a good start.

Cleo certainly looks very much at home! I'm sure she'll enjoy the window views. There is already a sense of spaciousness and serenity in these photos. I love the colours (Dutch blue :-)

hehe! yeah, Cleo probably would love to blog! she would complain about me not letting her eat fish and expound on her love of the new apartment, pillows and general happiness!

I look forward to seeing the finished pix too as it will mean I have my furniture!

thanks also H-E for your comment. yeah. i can't get away from being Dutch-American-Canadian or the colour blue!! and yes, the spaciousness here is quite evident, esp. compared to my last place!

It's always hard moving into a new place. My husband is military, so I know how it goes. The important thing is to settle in, decorate, and make it feel like that will be your home forever, or else you'll always feel like you're someplace temporary.

Congrats on the new apartment.

Hi Jennifer,

thanks again!

It looks very cozy - I'd love to come over for some tea and to talk books! :-)

elizabeth said...

thanks! that would be fun! I can't wait until I can get my furniture and really be fully set up! If you ever come to Ottawa, we must have a tea and books time :) ... though I am pretty far away from where you are!! :)
