Bits and Pieces

It has been ages since I posted and I think I officially have the title of worlds worst blogger! but I will try and be a little bit more consistent with the posts ( I know I say that every month or so).

Everything from now is the fun stuff, all the decorating and bits and pieces but there is still sooo much to go as far as the interior, so I will post a couple of pics of what I have done so far but some are not total rooms as we have ordered furniture and are waiting on some new pieces to finish off the main living area.

On a rather exciting note, we had some professional photos taken of our Kitchen and laundry and these are being published this month in Country Home Ideas magazine! Its nice to think that it was nice enough to end up in a magazine as there were times that I doubted my design choices. Let me know what you think….
