My own apartment

I moved into my new apartment, and out of my parent's house for the first time, a couple months ago. But I didn't share any photos on my previous blog so I decided to share pics on this new one.

My spring tea set. I looove it! It's so pretty, and I now have it on display in my kitchen.

 I got the old TV from my parent's bedroom and bought my own (relatively inexpensive) DVD player.

Guess which movie I'm watching here. :)

One view of my living room. Here you can see a small cat tree that is well loved, my spinning wheel, my desk, and the lovely full length mirror mom bought me. And yes, I blacked out my face in the mirror.

My kitty, Kokopelle, was very helpful in unpacking the mirror. He's actually helpful in unpacking almost anything.

My work space, with a lamp that I bought myself. It's also where I eat, when I don't just eat standing up at the kitchen counter. Which, I'm sorry to say, I have a habit of doing.

My comfy cozy chair, right next to the coat closet.

I finally have a place to put all the stuffed animals! In top my coat closet. Which also doubles as a pantry and is a space for me to stick random other things.

A view of the kitchen. Sort of. And a cat tree of sorts that only exists to be ignored.

One of my bookshelves.

I wanted to say that this is about half of my books, but I think it's fewer than half. They take up more space than the books on my other shelf do, but then they're also bigger.

I've actually got a section now for my books on religion and spirituality. :) Over to the right though you can see a few Girl Scout books. I guess I hang on to them for old times sake.

There were a couple of thunderstorms last week and I got photos of one. This doesn't do it justice, though. The storm was absolutely I discussed in one of my posts on my old blog.

I harvested some mint and sage in my parent's backyard and brought it back to my place to hang it to dry. My boyfriend says it makes my place look witchy.

Here you can also see, sort of, my second book case.

Not even sure what to say about this pic. Other than that, yes, I do like wind chimes. And those are sage flowers hanging to dry.

Lots of photos, I know. I hope I didn't bore everyone! :)

It looks very cute and just perfect. My first apartment was an attic that looked nothing like your sweet, sweet space. I love the drying herbs, your boyfriend is right.

Others have told me that it's nicer than their first place. So I guess I'm lucky here. :)

It's a lovely first apartment. And yes, the drying herbs add that special witchy touch!
