Our house...renovated

I've been wanting to blog about our renovation for quite some time now...and I finally have the chance to do it (aka....house is quite clean and I have time to take pictures of it).

We purchased the house in 2008 and renovated for a while. I have a few pictures, of the old look and now that I've been browsing, I wish I took more to really give you an idea of how much we did.  My husband, did most of the demolition and building on his own - he had help of amazing friends and skilled trades people who rebuilt the entire frame of the house, tiles, kitchen, painting etc. I take all the decorating credit ;)

We are so grateful and blessed to have the house at the point it is - still so many "little" things to do though. Its a process, I've definitely learned.

I'll show you the inside today then blog about the basement and outside another time.

Kitchen after: basically, the fridge now takes up the old kitchen area and we turned the "third bedroom (picture above) into the main kitchen area

Pretty girl!

I love weddings for two reasons; first, witnessing the best day of someone's life; second, dressing up!

How about one of these for a guest get-up or a bridesmaid dress?

And for the beautiful bride....metallic fabrics are making it in bridal fashion these days. You may have noticed a preview of this trend here - on our trip to Italy.
