The tour…

IMG_5747_1

I lived here for a year and a half. I love my spaces.

I started brand new, coming back to Toronto, trying to find footing.  It was weird, not being in an art related industry anymore and “figuring things out”, making my way. Yes, it did feel strange and backwards to be crashing at my folks house, then finding my “first apartment” again in Toronto… who did that in their late 30’s?

I’m well aware of my age, but in a lot of ways I feel like I’m in my 20’s again.  Starting from the ground up. I’m absolutely okay with that, I needed to do this, I think.

I did blog about the move-in, but I never added pics of the furnished space to this blog (I’ve showed them off on Facebook a while ago.)

Kitty bed: IKEA
Candles: probably Winners or Home Sense
Yin/Yang tea light holders: gift

I have a very common IKEA print (you know, the one of Amsterdam) hanging on my dining room wall. It was meant to be a placeholder.  I know it’s probably trite, but I actually like it.

I liked this apartment. I think I’ve made it mine.  I wish I could have stayed, and maybe I could have made it work.  In the long run I know the move is the right decision.

On to adventures.
