So there it is. My picture makes it look like it's in some small little bare corner I think. It is actually at the end of my kitchen/dining area. I live in a small farmhouse so the rooms are actually pretty small. It wouldn't fit in the living room.
You can see it from the living room through the French doors. I usually have a Balinese bench where the tree is. I move it into the library (very pretensious of me to call it the library isn't it?) for Christmas.
I love the way the bench looks in this room and have been longing for another to put in here for years. It is the perfect spot to lay and read in the morning. You can see in the picture how close I am to the road. Oh and when the birds ca-ca all over the house, guess which side it is? It's this corner. You raise the blinds and the windows are covered with it. And guess what I saw yesterday when I raised the blinds? You guessed it. They are getting more frequent. I powerwashed the house yesterday by the way. My first time. (Yet another power tool I recommend you all get. That thing cleans everything!) But like I had time to powerwash the house at this time of year! WHAT AM I GOING TO DO ABOUT THOSE DAMN BIRDS?
