New House



Our new house in Shanghai looks like it could be just about anywhere. It is not exactly our style, but it suits our needs for the time being. I always imagined that we would live in an old lane house in the French Concession, but the kids weren't keen on the two hour commute for school.




We found everything at the flea market, antique stores and one very cool furniture shop.

OH YEAH!!! Thank goodness you are back to your "post" and your new home is wonderful! It looks so.... American. So happy to know that you are finally settled and that things are going well. Now I am just concerned that after all of those amazing trips to the flea markets, etc., that you will come back to the States totally spoiled! Seems you can find ANY THING you are looking for there. Once you get back to creating, the world will truly be '...your oyster' Linda! Much happiness in your new abode!!!

I envisioned something more traditional for the area. But thankfully you are living in a larger space than what I thought you would have. Glad to see you back.
