Here is a picture of my first Thanksgiving decorations (I inherited them from my grandma's cousin this weekend):
I'd planned on putting up Christmas decorations when I got back to my place today, but much to my dismay, I don't have many decorations of my own! I should've had mom and dad bring some of mine from home this weekend, but even then, I don't know that they would do the trick. I'm used to having 3 other roommates to contribute decorations...not the case this year!
SO, I ask you, dear readers: Where should I look to build my decoration collection?
This is the perfect opportunity to give you a glimpse into my coop! I'm living in a refurbished chicken coop on my aunt and uncle's farm-ish property north of town. They added onto and refurbished the existing chicken coop a few years ago and have been renting it out to people ever since. I'm so glad they saved it for me after the last tenant moved out - it's perfect for this time in my life!! Take a peek:
|Here's the south side. You can see the original coop - it's the shorter roof at the back. |
The front side in this shot is the "new addition."
|This is the kitchen. You could've probably figured that out on your own.|
|The view of the living room from the kitchen. This room has changed since the picture was taken - now, there's a bigger TV, the couch and table are at a diagonal, and there's a large plant by the window.|
|This was taken from the north end, so it's the original coop. Yes, that is a wood-burning stove. I have yet to use it. Also, notice the music corner - it's grown since this picture was taken. : )|
