House!


I worked on a card all morning and am still not happy with it. I am not wasting any more time over it so instead of a card today, I am showing these photos of our house and kitchen for those who were asking me about them.

I am really happy with the way the house finished up and really would only change a couple of things if I had the choice over again. The terracing and turfing had not long been done when this photo was taken but the grass has not grown much as yet because of the winter. We have tiled floors in all but the bedrooms which are carpeted so it is cool inside right now but makes for a nice cool house in the summer which we have more months of.

I have always wanted a black and white kitchen so here was my chance and I am so happy with it. The cabinet maker was excellent and had lots of suggestions etc for us. There are just so many great extras that you can have in a kitchen. We have soft close drawers and lots of them, great corner drawers that conserve space and granite look bench tops. There is a corner pantry to the right of the fridge - wonderful! Sorry for the dull photo but it was hard to photograph looking to the light of the windows.
