Another Fabulous Light Transformation

Here's another fabulous light transformation found on Centsational Girl.

Pink Chandeliers

I was trying to find some ideas for some original yet inexpensive lighting ideas.  While searching the internet I found this fabulous chandelier on the blog, Vickie Howell.  She turned this...
into this...

I don't know if Sean would ever go for it, but maybe I'll be able to try something like this in my craft room.

Dogs On My Mind

In a few months Sean and I will be able to start searching for our first dog together.  We decided years ago that we would only adopt rather then buy from a breeder and definitely not from a pet shop.  I've been watching a couple rescue websites such as Hugabull and Bully Buddies  and of course Petfinder. With Staffordshire Terriers/Pitbulls on my mind I thought I'd find some bully/staffy art.

We're Almost There!!!

Last weekend we finally had a chance to walk inside our new home.  When we signed the papers a month ago all we had to look at was the floor plan and a couple pictures of the exterior of the building during construction.  They still have to finish renovating the whole neighborhood as it was used to house all the Olympic athletes during their stay in Whistler. Right now there is still a temporary wall dividing our living area and kitchen and the kitchen still needs to be installed.  Hopefully we'll be able to move in by August.  So now the countdown begins.

 The exterior of our building.

The Lobby

I'm standing in the entryway taking a picture of Sean standing in the doorway of the second bedroom.  I think we're missing some closet doors.

Our master bedroom.

Our master bathroom.

Our dining/living room.  The wall on the right, including the door, is only temporary and will be removed before we move in.

Our future Kitchen.
