As I previously posted last week, Luke & I moved house. We've have the majority of our things packed up for a year now, so unpacking these last couple of days has been pretty exciting. I've found some things, books, & home wares I had forgotten I owned. And have been able to unpack some lovely gifts from last years birthday & Christmas such as the babushka doll stack coffee mugs & red polka dot tea cups. They were my two favourite things to unpack so far! Last year Luke & I lived in an interesting house that had a shed packed with previous tenants discarded belongings and amongst them was a triangular A-frame bookcase that was painted a horrible shade of green with black patches all over it. I really like the shape of the bookcase, and thought it would look better painted red. So we held onto it for a couple of years with the hopes of a colour change, and when we found our new flat that had recently been painted all white inside, we thought it would suit the space painted white. So while I was a work last week, my Dad painted it for us all white & snappy ready for our new flat. 

The first things we unpacked were our books, and let me tell you Luke & I have a lot of books. We couldn't open a library or anything, but we are definitely not in any shortage of them! There are a couple of things that I own way too many of and they are Jackie Collins' books, tea cups, coffee mugs & dust collectors. Our flat isn't a very big space, so its been interesting trying to fit everything in and arrange it so it doesn't look like a storage room. The most exciting thing of all was having a new lounge delivered yesterday! It is super comfortable, while I was waiting for Luke to have a shower so we could do more jobs I fell asleep on it & woke up a few hours later! Once our bed side tables arrive and we've fully unpacked and arranged everything, I'll post some more pictures.
