I've been meaning to upload some photos of our apartment and what it currently looks like. Every time I think of it I end up changing something. So here it goes, the purpose of this is so it can hopefully be recorded in the annals of my life and that I can hopefully look back and see how much things have changed. . If you've been reading before you may know that it's taken me years to actually unpack everything I own. At some point in 2012 I actually moved 5-6 times in the calendar year. Yes, it's time to settle down. It has taken me years to purge through my mess and get rid of stuff. I am particularly proud of myself for donating 5 bags of clothes and bags to Goodwill last week. Woot woot!
Here we see...
Antique trunk from craiglist
Ikea floral patterned rug
Ikea floral cushions
Inherited floral painting from Miami, Fl (this painting is more than a century old!)
My book and album collection

One of two plants that have managed to survive in our home
Map of the world

A miniature collection of places visited and or wanting to visit.

The great pyramids of Giza
My collection of decorative plates and glassware
A favada Asturiana framed recipe on the far left

Yet another view from the Main Living area
I have so many souvenirs from all my travels and so many different styles that is almost impossible to merge them all in one.
It'll be funny how things look back to these pictures after we get more real furniture and/or move on to a bigger place.
Hope you enjoyed it!
