Thank you everyone for your kind words and support! I am at a bit of a stand still right now, been ill and havent had much of a chance to work on my little home. But it is set up and I look at it daily ( i have thrown a few pieces if furniture and knick knacks in it to for an idea how the finished product will look)
I am not sure if I gave the background on my little Orchid, so I will give it again ( when i say background, i mean the story in my head that goes along with the "history" of the house)
"This is Aunt Susie's House. Aunt Susie is your father's sister. She has never been married, been close a few times though. She loves animals and gardening and most of all she loves helping people. Aunt Susie will open her door day or night. You may have to sleep on the couch- but you will have a spot to sleep if you need it. She is mainly visited by family in need of a little peace and quiet. Her home is a place of security, solitude, comfort and security. You walk in the door and it is like your own "hide-out" from the world. She listens when you want to talk and is quiet when you need to think."
When I started building this house, I was really in a rough spot in my life. When Aunt Susie's House spoke to me- it was everything I needed at that time. Even though I can not actually go lay in the sunshine outside in the garden or curl up on her couch with a good book- I look forward to finishing this house and in my mind at least have the sanctuary of it. I hope that doesnt sound too crazy or lame.
