The Bistro down the Street

Ion – Growing Pains

ion - growing painsGrowing up isn’t easy and Ion is at a difficult age. Sometimes, he feels like an adult. On the other hand, he is not yet ready to let go of the treasures of his childhood. Luckily, he has a cosy spot to keep all things that have been and still are dear to him. Little trinkets he collected all over the world, while travelling with his parents.
Being an avid gamer, Ion also collects retro video games, and unlike many adult hoarders, he still enjoys playing them.

At Home – Mirror House

Mirror House - 1. Outside

Today’s post will be in a slightly different format than usual. First of all, it’s not about one of my characters and their adventures, but about a place. Secondly, this place was not built / put together just for the purpose of a blogpost.
Follow me to Mirror Lake. As it lies hidden in a secluded little area, surrounded by small mountains, it is not easy to find Mirror House. The humble residence of the Szpiegel family was built by Corv’s great-grandfather Erich. Recently the Kitteh inherited it from his great-aunt.

When he moved in, Corvus left most of the things as they were. He never really knew any of his family and being surrounded by their belongings makes him feel closer to them. He did, however, add a few touches of his own here and there.

mirror house - living

Most of the time, the Kitteh and his friends hang out by the fire, with the old-fashioned, but cosy kitchen right behind them. The furniture may be a little old and faded, but everything is still in good working order.

mirror house - sleeping

The bedroom area has probably seen the most changes. Great-aunt’s frilly and moth-eaten bed wasn’t quite Corv’s taste and he replaced it with something that doesn’t smell of dust and moth balls, and doesn’t have springs that poke your fur when you seriously try to catnap.

I hope you enjoyed the little tour around the house – it is a private place and normally only open to select guests.
There are too many items in the pictures to list individually, so I am going to provide a list of shopws where items are from, and landmarks if possible. I hope I don’t forget anyone… if you see something I missed, please let me know!
