Pictures update!

Post by Kitsune » Tue Jul 21, 2009 4:59 pm

Alrighty, I decided I had to partially wait for pictures, since we went out Monday night and got all of the pieces to set up my shelves! Thus, I will take pictures of the house and my finished alter tomorrow. Pictures will be up no later than Thursday, I promise. They will most likely be up on Wednesday!

I can't wait to show all of you guys! :-D

Is there now a bookshelf supply shortage in Calgary? :-D

I didn't mention it on here, but me and Grimwell got into a car accident... Idiot woman said she 'didn't see the red light" and is still somewhat adamant about not seeing it (We've got witnesses, so we should be solid though). We didn't want to spend any money until we found out if the car was covered or not. Still haven't heard from her insurance company in a direct "yes or no" sort of way yet. but since the accident happened the last time we went to pick them up, we decided to let it stand for a while. :-D

I do have pictures now, since my office is almost unpacked now... I just need to get the pics off the camera and onto something so that I can post them here.

I promised and here they are...

Image

So these two are pictures of our gaming room! :-D Most people would have a front room... We decided we'd make better use of the room this way.

Image

This is how it looks from our back door!, Now, I'll move onto the good stuff.

Image

Now, this was my office not more than 3 days ago... and it was the major reason I hadn't posted pics before now!
Below, you'll see how it looks now, with most of it done and just a bit more cleaning and organizing needed.

Image

A huge difference, no?

Here is the necklace I told you all about!

Image

Image

This is, of course, my singing bowl.

Here are a few close up pics of the entire altar.

Image

Image

Image

And last but not least, a scrying mirror that I made myself... What do you think?

Image

Oh, let me know if the pics are too small to see... I originally set them too big, and had to resize them. :-D

thanks for posting, I love the view from your back deck. And the gaming room, that is awesome.

The gaming room sees a lot of use since it's also a very convenient dining room sort of area. We down there about half the time, the other half we eat up in our tv room (in actuality the Master bedroom... we looked at it and thought, hmm, nothing we do in our bedroom requires that much space... the master bedroom is better put to this use, and we took the other small bedroom). It's so great, it really feels like home now!

The only room we don't have anything figured out for is our fully finished basement, which we're using to keep all of our camping equipment, large boxes that we can't throw away, and other assorted "knick knack" items that for whatever reason aren't often in use. We're only using a corner of the room though, so we're thinking that we might make it an exercise room, since a friend of ours is going to give us an old weight set of theirs.

It's all turning out so well though! I'm so pleased.

The only real change that we need to do is the front door. The door and the doorway have shifted so we have a huge draft problem with it (we can see the light shining through the gaps when it's closed). The only thing is that we actually can't change it, the condo company has to. On the other hand, they have promised to have it done before Winter hits (so before October, almost certainly) and they're even open to the idea of using the materials we want if we are willing to pay extra it. We are, so I can't wait for that to get done.
