Dream House...FINALLY !!

I still think I am dreaming but we finally started building my DREAM HOME...

but first...I had to get rid of the old house
~ would not believe the amount of things which NO longer worked in this house ~ as things were breaking NOTHING was being repaired...



gone...hey !!!!!

I currently have designers ironic, I can instantly imagine the finished look of the houses I renovate but now I am starting my own home my mind is blank...thank goodness for blogging ~ I definitely need somewhere to go to be re-inspired.

1 Big fat SOLD sign

' SOLD ' ~ what a wonderful word !!
I have 1 of I need....

1 of these!!!!!!! (o.k there will be a few more than 1)

I have had such a positive couple of months, there has been so much good energy flowing my way. I still cannot believe we sold "the Boat House" before auction. It was adopted buy a Wonderful Family... LOVE at first sight. They adore the House & even took ALL the furniture. Settlement was today & I know they are celebrating as we speak !!! I however have my own house to pack & a rental to move into, so my celebrating will have to wait until Sunday night.

I am going to be off line next week due to moving & the re-connection of my Internet


enjoy your weekend & week

I will see you soon

You will just fall in love with the dining room....Oh to live in Sydney (again...with harbour views this time..) to be able to spent endless amounts of money on things you love...houses, clothes ,shoes, family & friends ` not in this order off course!!!..but I think you this weekend I will continue to design my dream home, this time in this gorgeous colour, with this gorgeous hanging light..
