Any House is a Home

Happy Saturday! Priorities have shifted recently and it prompted a lot of soul-searching and reflection. Here is one about our new house, family and Art-making. 18 months ago, we moved from our house of 15 years. It was a quaint little weatherboard, built in 1959 and definitely a testament to its time.

When Enough probably isn’t….
