'Before and After' Week

... one year ago! September 2008.

September 2009. We've come a long way.

Not too much is happening on the house at present, apart from daily work and living, (oh and of course, painting 'touch ups') so for those of you who haven't been with me since the beginning of this project, I thought you might enjoy some 'before and after' photos this week.

Painter No. 3 moves inside this week (more dropsheets) so I am house bound ('house protector') once again.....good excuse to catch up on paper work. Yep, swallowed by 'The House'.... again.

Thank you for all your lovely birthday wishes for hubby. We had a wonderful weekend enjoying our little family and even roped in a babysitter so we could enjoy a night out together. Ended up talking about our boys for 3 hours over dinner! We're incurable.
Have a great week!
A-M xx

P.S. Slight technical delay with 'Spring Giveaway Draw' - waiting for camera battery to recharge in order to photograph barrel boys!

  3. What a remarkable journey you have been on in the last year, so many challenges...and yet the final result is beyond beautiful, congratulations. So when do we get to see your story published in a mag???
    BTW, when I only have enough time in the day to check out one blog, it's always yours!

  4. Don't you just love before and after shots.Amazing.

  5. Hi A-M
    I think this before photo was about the time I first tuned into your blog [lurking that is]. But what a wonderful after shot. It inspires me to have something similar one day. [with luck]. Have a great week. x Julie

  6. Hi A-M, Wow what a difference. I am looking forward to the before and afters this week. Good luck with painter # 3.

  7. Great before and after photos, when stuck in the middle of a big project like this it is easy to forget how far you have come.

  8. Wow, I can't believe it all happened so quickly! What a year it's been for you. Well done.

  9. From a hole in the ground to a beautiful house - well done you! Leigh

  10. wow - your home is beautiful! well done - bet it was stressful but well worth it!


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a comment. I love hearing from you. A-M xx
