There is a room in my house that I like to pretend noone else knows about. Its actually my favorite part of my bedroom. My Dad calls it the "hiding room" - I call it "ticket to Narnia" or "Platform 9 and 3/4" What room is this you may ask? Its the room inside of my closet. You can imagine my excitement of moving into this house a few years ago. A walk in closet - with a room behind it? Nonsense! But its true..and its a beauty. When I was away in Australia, my family turned it into a storage area, but you can bet your bottom dollar that I changed that quite quickly when I returned. I knew it needed something a little extra special.



A sewing machine.



Today I went out and purchased my first sewing machine. Im still trying to think of what her name will be, but it was love at first sight. I took her home and made a new beautiful space for her. Not bad for a first house, hey? Yes..she was very excited too. There you have it, a sneak peak into my secret room - but shhh, dont tell anyone. Hope you are all doing amazingly well! Hugs! x

  3. I love secret rooms! My grandmother's old house had a secret room off of a closet but you had to crawl through a little tiny doorway to get into it. It was always such a magical place for me when I was young. I love how you decorated yours, & congrats on getting your first sewing machine! It looks like a beauty. ^_^

  4. That is so absolutely amazing! I've always wanted a house with a 'secret' room or a maid's staircase or something! I love this!

  5. Oh my gosh Kate, how amazing is a secret room! I always wanted one when I was little, so I'd build little forts in the back of my closet. Nothing compared to yours though!

    And yay for a new sewing machine. I bet you and her will be best friends in no time ;]

  30. So jealous! Congrats on the sewing machine.
    I'm currently looking for a house and in one there was an option for an extra room for $20, and I would be so tempted to turn it into a studio of sorts :P

  32. That is like the coolest thing ever! And your sewing machine is great. I have a vintage one but it doesn't work. You are kinda inspiring me to get it fixed.
