An Apartment Tour
Here is my apartment, decked out for Christmas. Don’t worry, by the time you read this post my decorations will have been packed away for some time.
For my visually-inclined readers (Mom) here is a diagram of my apartment.
This pic is taken from the entryway. The sliding glass window leads to the patio.
As you can see, I have yet to hang the mirrored door above my sofa. I tried to do it myself, but I couldn’t figure out where the studs are in that wall! (And yes, Dad, I did use the stud-finder in my toolbox. No dice.).
Our stockings were hung by the chimney with care. Mine is on the right, Chloe’s is on the left. I add one ornament to the tree for each Christmas we are together. This year makes three. (And yes, Mom, that was your idea.)
Bosslady gave me this sweet nativity set, handmade by her father-in-law. (And yes, Bosslady, there are a few pieces missing. The star and stable fell behind the TV stand while the kids were playing.)
Do you know what is fun about this apartment? The fireplace. Although I have to say that it produces little to no heat. But it sure does look pretty!
I hung my Christmas cards up where I could see reminders of my friends every day.
Here is the dining area as seen from the living room.
Do you like my Christmas centerpiece? That was from our trip to Graeagle.
Here is the bathroom. If you look at the diagram above it appears that I have two distinct sink and vanity areas. But in fact one of those areas is actually my laundry room. A very worthy trade in my opinion!
This picture is taken from the dining room looking into the kitchen. The Christmas cards make this picture look a little cluttery, but it’s really not that bad.
Do you see that step-stool in the kitchen? It gets a lot of use – those cabinets are tall! See?
Lastly, here is my bedroom with a new winter comforter set.
I’d show you all a picture of the guest room, but it hasn’t been decorated yet so it looks kind of stark. I’m waiting for Mom or Jersey to get out here and help me find my decorating mojo again. I lost it after the house became livable-enough and I haven’t found it since!
