Mowing!! What??

So today is the first of March and do you know what I was doing? I was mowing the lawn, can you believe it? This is so crazy, in every state in the US  minus Hawaii there was snow, where I live on the west coast of Canada we have seen none. Wow, Can you say El Nino. I have been extremely busy with all sorts of wonderful new projects some crafty, but a lot have to do with my home. so I thought that I would share with you a little bit of the transformation
This is what the house looked like when I moved in
This is what it looks like now
This has all happened over the course of 5 years. During this time we got married and had two children. I love this house but alas we have out grown it and it is time to move on to the next. 
I have been busy getting the house ready to sell, putting on its make up so to speak, finishing touches, paint touch ups from my where my boys have been too rough and spring flowers.
It has been huge in my mind as of late and so I thought that I would share some of it with all of you!

For the most part there is very little left of the original house, we recycled so much! All the windows and kitchen cabinets, panelling and other materials. We also removed 16 tons thats right TONS of plaster, wall paper, old carpet and linoleum. My husband and I did the majority of the work, but we also had a ton of help from our families along the way. I am so very greatful to have such a treasure of talent and kindness behind me. I will try and share some more of the before and after photos over the course of the next week as I take some pictures of the "AFTERS". Say a prayer and wish me luck as we head into another exciting time.
