New House!

I know this is long overdue, but here it is!
Our new (rental!) home! It's so nice to be in a real live house. We have a lot more space for November to crawl, for Kitsune to run; we have our very own washer and dryer, dishwasher, no more stairs; November has her nursery WHILE we have our music/art/office room! We have a large back yard (not fully fenced, unfortunately) and a patio with access from the kitchen AND our bedroom. It's awesome and we love it! Of course, we do miss the beautiful view from our Alki Beach apartment...
Most of our rooms and spaces are decorated and organized, but there are still a few areas that could use some more love, like our living room, dining room, and bedroom. We have so much wall space now too; I really need to start making some artwork! I have a lot of ideas (especially some pinterest diy ideas!) I just need the time to execute them.

Here is our music room! Spencer's guitar wall:
My guitar/tambo wall:
Star Wars shrine:
I love having our own area dedicated to our hobbies and passions. And we can close the door so we can keep November's sticky, curious little fingers away! And speaking of November, here's her new nursery. You can compare to the old nursery.

I made pennants with her name to hang over her crib:
I also made shadowboxes with 1.) her 'first day' outfit, including the hat she wore immediately out of the womb, 2.) a tiny white onsie, and our favorite newborn onesie, and 3.) her first Christmas dress, including a tiny pearl necklace and bracelet that Spencer's father sent her. These are such a great way to turn cherished little baby clothes into a keepsake.
When we moved I removed her cherry blossom wall decal and put it on the dresser! I think it looks great, and would have been much harder to stick in onto paper and THEN put it on her new wall.
She outgrew her changing table a long time ago (too wiggly!), now it acts as a stuffed animal shelf (we change her on the floor, under the mobile, which she still loves.)
And one more picture:
We love our new house!
