Amanda’s recent post "Corners of My Home" really spoke to me somehow, perhaps because this house is still so new to us and I am still learning the secrets of its corners.
I thought I would share one of my favourite nooks of this house.
This house is mudbrick, a medium beloved of alternative house-builders and hippies everywhere. The people we bought the house from built it twenty years ago and because they were building it for themselves, they incorporated all sorts of little touches. Quirky little touches such as dried flowers, a pretty tile, a not so pretty tile, some coat hooks, and a wine bottle, all embedded into the mud.
(Yes, a wine bottle. Embedded into the mud, by the front door. It functions as some kind of weird light source in the afternoon sunlight.)
PS. Most of the corners in this house have cobwebs. With brick floors, mudbrick walls and exposed beams, this place is a dust and cobweb nightmare.
