No Place like Home

I had a chance to put together another page for my album 'My Place in the Sun' inspired by the year long FREE class on offer from Jane Howden at Scrap Begginings, you can find the site here

I wanted to make a page with a larger picture of my home and a brief discription of how we came to live at 'Parkside View' in South Morang.


Journaling - We have lived in 'Parkside View', South Morang since December 2003. We bought this home after selling a small 2 bedroom unit that we were living in at the time. The size of the unit and the fact that it was upstairs made it no longer appropriate, we needed somewhere bigger, and on flat ground due to the fact I had knee problems at the time.

I love my home at Parkside View, especially the color of the bricks and woodwork features.I also love the bay lounge room at the front of the house. Inside the open living floor plan maintains a sense of formality and functionality.

I made the 'Home Sweet Home' sign from polymer clay and used a stamp to stamp the wording. I love the little yellow owl calling out 'Home', and the sun peeping out from behind the clouds :)

Next.......looking at the back yard and front yard......
