Before we moved to our home here in Newcastle, we spent a little over ten years in our previous home in one of the south western suburbs of Sydney. As soon as I saw our house here I fell in love with it. We'd been seriously looking for about a year, travelling up from Sydney a couple of times a month to inspect properties and in all that time we were only ever interested in two houses. The first one we were interested in wasn't as nice a house but was in a "better" location. We put in an offer but it didn't work out, for which I am now extremely grateful as I love our current home so much.
Anyway, in our previous life, we accumulated many things. They didn't always have a perfect place in our last home but it is amazing how perfectly they all fit into our current home. I always wanted a fairy garden but it wasn't until we moved here that many of the statues and ornaments that we had turned the little area in a tucked away part of the garden into an actual fairy garden. When I look out my kitchen window, I have the great pleasure of looking out over the fairy garden. Here are some of the sights I see:
