A Home away from home.

Where thou art ~ that ~ is home. Emily Dickinson If Liddy has to be away from home then this is the perfect arrangement. All the boys in her life are of the four~footed variety, she has spectacular views & "A Room of her Own." Virginia Woolf would be proud.
The room is literally that, just one large room that is basically a bed/sitter. It is quite separate from the main house. There is even a hedge between & the windows open onto Mt Barney.

Everything a girl needs is here. The old fashioned wood stove is plenty big enough to heat one small room. It can be cooked on too, if Liddy so desires.
There is an old fashioned 50s dresser with pretty tin cannisters for biscuits & sweets. Sile had thoughtfully filled one with ginger nut cookies, one of Liddy's favourites ~ after chocolate of course!
And the double bed is perfect for the girl who still sleeps like a starfish! Not that she spends lot of time in here but it is a warm & pleasant place to retire to when the day ends. Temperatures out west plummet once the sun dips behind the mountains & most winter nights dip below zero. The morning world is white with frost. I sleep better knowing Liddy is so well taken care of.

This looks like a dream of a little place for liddy. I would have adored it when I was young.Mine was the tiny caravan that dad built to give us all holidays. Paradise!

Ruby said...

Great digs!
I love the rustic look of the place.

Gerry: I'd live there in a heartbeat! ☺

Ruby: It's really terrific. So much character & charm.

I love it! I am a little envious, but in a good way lol. Liddy is certainly blessed :D
