Hehehehehehe, you waited for them, didn't you?
So here are some photos of the inside of my house now we are settled in.
We will keep making changes inside, but this is a good start...

So, please, come through the kitchen door to enter.


Not too bad, isn't it?


Enough for the kitchen. Now follow me in the living room. Stop at the door and take time to see everything!


I really love this buffet (unless you say sideboard?) we found in a second hand shop.

Next to it you can see the chimney mantle.


The door you can see leeds to the bathroom (which I did not photograph as there is nothing interesting to show you there).

Facing the chimney mantle : the sofa (not a comfy one, but changing it in far to be our priority number one).


The patchworks were handmade by a lovely French lady.

Right, now we must go back to the kitchen to reach the stairs to go upstairs.

Just upstairs, there was enough space to install my cabinet. Inside and on its top, I installed as many Cheeky bears as I could (from my Merrythought collection). 


Lets have a look inside the bedroom. There, we still have some work to do : note the floor : there is a part missing we hided the best we could time to fix it. Malko removed the boxing of the chimney tube as well as the tube. He already filled the hole in the ceiling. Luckily, we had something to hide the wall too before we rearrange it!!!

On the bed, you can see our kitty, who loves to have her nap there.



And to finnish the visit, come in the working studio!



I now have a sewing space!!!! We may had a wooden table inside (one of the shelves would move inside the bedroom).

Facing, we put our desks :



Guess which one is mine? (see where are the bears...).

We have lots of plans for our house, but we have just moved in and there is no emergency...

Oh, to the people who did not know it : I collect bears and Malko collects clocks.

To finnish, here is a photo of our kitty on one of her favourite places :


I hope you enjoyed the visit.

When I can, I will go and take some photos of the landscapes in the surroundings. They are beautiful.

Beary hugs,

I felt like you were taking me on a personal tour of your new house, Sophie. I'm amazed that you are so settled into your home in such a short time. Everything is in it's place and looks like you've lived there for a long time. Thanks for sharing your new home.

Hi Sophie, Your new house looks just wonderful, so much charm to it.  I think you have done a wonderful job so far and it looks so cosy and inviting.

Thanks for the tour.  I absolutely LOVE your floors.  The floor in the kitchen is just plain fun!  The flooring in the living room is very interesting as well.  Upstairs - there is nothing like wood floors is there?  We are planning on taking all of our carpet out except for the two extra bedrooms.  Wood floors - here we come!

I'd really love to have red cork in my kitchen if possible.

How exciting to be in your own home and it looks so light and airy. Love you older pieces of furniture as we also collect antique pieces. Looks like the cat already rules the house!!!!

Hi Sophie
What a charming home you have!  Thanks for the wonderful tour you gave us. 
It's always fun to see homes in far away places.  And it's probably the closest I'll ever come to visiting France, which I'd really really love to do.  Maybe someday...

We surely love very much our house.

We love the house itself and we love the little village we live in and our neighbours are lovely. In addition, the landscapes around the village are beautiful, so what to expect more???? The only thing is there is no shop in the village and we need to drive 6 km to reach the closest town with shops, which is not too far after all.  bear_tongue

Thank you very much for your nice comments about our house.  :hug:
Of course, this is far to be a big house, but it is still bigger than the tiny flat we were living in before.
not really everything is in its place, in fact... but most things are.
Some things are supposed to be moving to the attic, but the attic first needs a floor. The attic is "very big" (about 30 m2) but the only problem is that we can stand inside only in its middle lane, because of the shape of the roof. So it may be used only as a storage place. We have a lot of stuff to store, stuff which is currently invading our tiny dressing and outdoor pighouses!
A chance we have been living together for only a few years!!!  bear_tongue  :crackup:

Oh, i forgot to say that the tiles in the house are all as old as the house (a little over one century). We really love a lot the ones in the living-room and may never change them! They are in pretty good shape.  bear_thumb

Beary hugs,

:photo:   Too neat!!!!!   bear_wub   I loved the photo tour Sophie!!!  :clap:  :clap:  :clap:   Your house looks like it could be in one of those house magazines.  Would you like to come decorate my home?   bear_laugh   I think I've collected too much stuff and it doesn't look anywhere near as nice as your home.   bear_wub   

And your kitty has a perfect paradise ~ a window view with a heater!  What more could a kitty ask for?   bear_happy
