Catching up with My Blog!

Updating the bedrooms for the staging of Fernwood has been fun and some work too. Richard laid the new floors and I scoured the countryside for treasures to put to good use! The little dresser here is one example of a $15 find that just needed a little TLC and Paint to be a perfect little storage place for the girls. Payton and Brooklyn did the little table mat for us when we first left for Florida and so it has a special place in their new little room.
I found the lamp at Home Sense for $29 and when it is lit you can see moons and stars through the lampshade. Very cute. The bed came from a friend of Lisa's and it has been painted the same "Heritage White" as the dresser. The little garbage pail is from the dollar store!

The rug was from Ikea and it was only $34 and it gives such a lovely little place to play on the floor. The basket is from my parent's home so it has a vintage feel and brings a little nostalgia to the room for Grandma (me)! The bedding was from Winners and Ikea and came together nicely with some fabric in Green that I already had to do the curtains.
The spare room and study was essentially the last room we needed to complete and it has come out very nicely too. The bedding is from Beddingtons and the curtains from Home Depot! Richard replaced all of the plugs and switches for nice new white ones and you can see that the floor, the paint job and the baseboards all look pretty good too.
Deanna and her boyfriend were in Ottawa for a visit from Guelph where they have each renovated their respective homes so they know what we have been up to these days. Louise and Lisa and the two little Youngs were able to visit for Monday morning breakfast. We will soon have Payton off school so we can see her too. Today is her last day! I have projects waiting for the girls to do some artwork for their room!

Brooklyn choosing a picture to colour at her table and chairs...currently by our fireplace.
This week Maddie learned to pull herself up in our playpen and she is so pleased every time she does it. She turned 7 months old a few days ago! and has 1 tooth.
Reggie and Brooklyn are the best of friends!
