getting settled

I'm here. All well and fine! I've been busy with scrubbing and cleaning and trying to stay organized, but I wanted to share a teeny little glimpse into the workings and makings that I've been wrapped up in the past few days!

makin' house

It's not much right now, and I think it's going to be a long time before this apartment puts itself into place... The rest of my things will get here on Thursday and then it's just a matter of time before we find the perfect couch, and chairs, and lamps, and side tables and curtains and all the other things that make a house a home. In the mean time, this little lamp is holding strong!

the only source of light

Neon Relish said...

Look at that little radiator! So cute. I hope you have lots of fun getting settled - San Francisco is a great city. I used to live there when the Musee Mechanique was down near the Cliff House (I think they moved it to one of the piers?) and it was major magic.

Lemon said...

love the double-lace-curtain idea...and hope it feels like home very soon!
