I thought you might like to see where we’re quarantined. Our little cottage at 7 French Street was built back somewhere in the 1890s. It used to be owned by our friends Ken and Sue and now it’s owned by our friend Hamish.
He is letting us stay here while the coronavirus has us stranded in Australia. So we’ve returned the favor by overseeing some painting and redecorating projects. And Jamie’s also been killing time by working in the garden.
This is the living room. Or as they said in Australia, the lounge. We’re spending a whole lot of time lounging these days.
Love the old foot-powered sewing machine in the corner. The wrought iron Wertheim logo is such a beautiful touch.
Love the two antique metal suitcases stacked to provide an accent piece in the lounge. Jamie found this old silver urn in a local antique store. It cost laughably little.
Hamish wanted to expose the bricks in the old master bedroom fireplace, so I got out a hammer and chisel and did what I could.
