after 13 & 1/2 years I said goodbye and thank you for the best years of my life at no 8 a week ago

Terry the owner operator of Blue Ribbon Removals took such good care moving everything, it was a treat not having to do the lug for the first time in my life!

come on in and have a look around

the fireplace doesn’t work in the lounge room but the reverse cycle air conditioning is wonderful, makes the house warm and cosy in a matter of minutes

bedroom coming together, have ordered more reproduction Deco brass picture rail hooks

the curtain rails work for hanging the more sculptural pieces

the music room has become a library & memento mori for Old Man Crow, just needs a big old easy chair

everything is falling into place, opening each box of stuff is like xmas!

‘A Matter of Time’ by crow woman extraordinaire Glenda Fell Jones and the shelves in the hallway filling up

what were my work table and shelves in the studio at no 8 are now in the dining room

this is such a great kitchen, the wood stove doesn’t work but the gas one is brilliant, the clicky things work for all the burners so I don’t have to find matches!

office space all set up and connected to the internet in the smallest room in the house

the separate studio

with so much space!

and even more shelving for storage

more boxes to unpack

& more boxes out in the garden shed
should be all settled by this time next week
time to go for a bushwalk today as soon as the sun comes up!

    It looks so very “you.” And yes, more s p a c e. Which will fill with old memories and news ones to be made.

    Bienvenida a su casa querida Mo; welcome to your home dear Mo. The whole of this just speaks of Home; it looks and feels like home from here, with so many nooks and crannies and space and light; so warm and inviting. You have done so much already Mo to make your Blackheathen address a home. Planter pots at the ready to seed your magic…As you delve fully into your space, into your land, breathe it all in and know that we all, are so very happy for you.

  13. Eliene says:

    Wow, the entrance looks so inviting Mo…..and what a beautiful space you have created inside. It is all fitting so nicely and everything is looking great. Lots of room for more artworks. I can see you creating many more beautiful things [art, memories, meals, friendships] and more in this new space. Very happy for you Mo.
    I sent you an email last night but it came back “undeliverable” and I thought I hope she writes soon and this morning here you are…thank you.

  14. Mike says:

    Looks like you’ve aged into quite a good place, Mo.
    Gives me even more reason to make the short hop over to Oz one of these days.

    you DID IT!… you are There! and it is as if it was waiting for you all along! I look forward

    Good luck there and happy stitching on wonderful new pieces !

    A beatiful new place, so peaceful and full of light. I wish you all the best there. Doris

  28. David Barr says:

    Wow… it looks wonderful.
    My place is a very modest brick and tile.
    Not my usual style at all but I figure that at 71 I don’t want to maintain a wooden house.
    It’s about convenience now. But I can see what I need to do to bring it up to scratch.
    Also there is not one plant in the garden so it’s a blank canvas in that regard.
    I’ll send you some shots when I move in at the end of July.
    Hope you are well and happy.
