Photographer Erin Wallace of Bluebirdbaby blog, is doing another EyesOpen  photography e-course. She asked me to be a contributor, which means I got to wax philosophical about my creative process and share some photos of my work and home. You can see the post here. I thought you might want to see some more photos of my home. Sometimes people say I should share more of my home, but I always feel a bit self-conscious about doing that. I don't know why since most of these have been on my Flickr stream for quite awhile. I live in a very old house (1763) that my husband and I have been slowly working on for 10 years now. We live in a little village on the coast of Maine, and it is a very quiet life for us. We have the feeling that our house chose us because we are hardworking fools who will devote that kind of crazy time and effort to this kind of endeavor! We love the house though. I fell in love with the old doors, and John loves the 2 chimneys we had to have rebuilt from the roof up (ahem, you see what I mean...we could have had a pretty nice vacation for what that cost!). But there is something about making a house a home, and one that reflects who lives there, and how. It is an art form, and one of the most satisfying to me. So here goes.

What a wonderful house you have, it looks warm cosy and very welcoming and you really got an eye and hand for making it a home. And I especially like these shelfs with all the creative stuff and love love the bird nests (so many!) - I once found one and I love it, small little art creations.
Thank you for sharing, it really brings a little light in grey winter days.

What a happy, cozy, homey, beautiful home you have! How fortunate you are to live in Maine. I worked as a camp counselor in Freedom for one summer and I fell in love with the land and people.
