Our New Home

After a couple of weeks of settling into our new apartment in Austin, Leben and I finally feel like we are home!

As this is now my permanent  residence for the next year (and maybe even further into the future!) I thought it might be nice to give you some glimpses of my new home.


Leben’s favorite place to lay down!


Check out that PANTRY.


I finally, finally, FINALLY have a dress form in my size! Woo hoo!! This has been a lovely addition to my living room for about a week now, and I have LOVED working with it.

Yes, there will probably be a not-so-hidden dog toy in every corner of my house.


My table with mismatched wooden chairs– an upcoming craft project for me! đŸ˜‰


My haven.


The natural light here is fantastic!


Leben loves being underfoot while I’m cooking– and the kitchen is now large enough for both of us! As long as one of us doesn’t get into the flour, that is….

Home sweet home. <3

I call these my “Austin Lights.” It seems that everyone in Austin has these globe lights decorating their balcony or backyard, and I was more than happy to join in the fun!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this little tour of our humble abode. I don’t have anything hung on the walls yet, but I’m really happy with the vibe regardless. It really feels like me. đŸ™‚

Until next time!

  1. So cute! This is totally you. Very spacious, and I love the natural light. Jealous of your pantry!

  2. I was SHOCKED when I saw it! I think I’ll be living here for a while. Maybe years!!
