In and Around My House: Fall 2014

After moving everything from the most Southern cupboard on the West wall of Tiny House Ontario, I tidied the house up a bit and took a look around.  You know, like most houses things are somewhat fluid in a tiny house too.  Things move, and sometimes things are even replaced.  This year, I have not been there too much but even so there are changes.  I thought it was time to update the images from home.

The West Window is the most decorated in THO. also it is where I put things like the little flower pot heater and candles and even the small propane heater from time to time.  Recently, my son did a dumpster dive for me at the countertop manufacturer and got this great piece of 1.5 inch thick marble so now the window sill won't get damaged by damp and wax.

Out the North Window Guillaume's house is being built.

Out the North Window Guillaume’s house is being built.  A little candle holder in the window casts nice light, and adds a little warmth too.  This is not new.  My son won it with a bunch of other things in a raffle at a fund raiser, about ten years ago and gave it to us. 

The chair got a hand made afghan from my cousin Nora.  I love hand made things and think this looks and feels wonderful on the old chair.

The chair got moved and it also got a hand made afghan from my cousin Nora. I love hand made things and think this looks and feels wonderful on the old chair.   You will also notice that I have a new butane cook top.  It works well, but unfortunately it sets off my fire alarm, so… I have to use it outside which kind of defeats the purpose.  It will be nice to have a wood stove so that during the cold months I can use this to cook on.   *** See the orbs in this photo?

Another wonderful and appreciated hand made afghan from cousin Nora.  They cover the sofa nicely to keep dirtily little paw prints at bay and they can also be used as a cover.  Please note the beautiful work of art in the corner, by the Australian artist Asta Lander.  I grew up with swans and really love this piece.

The sofa is in a new spot and it has a wonderful and appreciated hand made afghan from cousin Nora. These cover the furniture nicely, and to keep dirtily little paw prints at bay.   Too, they can also be used as a cover. Please note the beautiful work of art in the corner, by the Australian artist Asta Lander. I grew up with swans and really love this piece.  The shelves are slightly more full because the shelves on the other side have been removed.

The door to the stone patio at the North and the door to the in-house.

The door to the stone patio at the North and the door to the in-house.  Also the stairs going up.  This is a busy corner with a lot of functions!

A bit of a rainy day here - I left the ground level  rain barrel connected so that Guillaume can use the water until it gets too cold.  He will soon have to drain it and tip the barrel for the winter.  Still hoping he gets his roof on before freeze.
