I Spy: Things Around my Home.

To see a general tour of my rental house, look here.

I'm adding pictures of some of the details in the house. We do not have any of our belongings, so I cannot show you my fabulous (thats supposed to sound ironic) decorating skills. I have bought three things that decorate our mantle. I also added some pictures of the few things we brought with us that I cherish. 

First, Some architectural details of the house:
At the base of the hallway archway.
Our bookcase, with the books we have bought since being here. Top shelf books still need to be read, second shelf books have been read (by one or both of us). The other shelf has free maps that I have picked up about South Africa.

The dining room fireplace. Sunflowers.
The Lounge (living room) fireplace. Ships. (Also- ignore the ugly wires)
 The three things I've bought for decoration: A shadowbox display (it has lovely fittings), and two animals to go in it.

All three together.
This is a donkey, if you can' tell.

A Scottie dog.
 Things I brought: A scrapbook my friends made for me as we left the USA, and my dogs!

Bachelorette party.

U of A football!

Etta's nose.

Reeses' nose.
