What a week!

We just got back from our house and we are blown away.  The changes this past week really started to show the details that both Scott and I picked.  It has been so exciting to see that our decisions that we made in the showroom from little sample pieces look great.  The house is really starting to come together.  Next week Scott’s parents will be in town so they will finally be able to see our new home for themselves.  It’s hard to imagine that our home will be done in about one more month!!
Also, just to let you all know, you can click on the images that we post to view them in a larger size.

The Loft. The house behind us will only be 1.5 stories!! They will not block our view of Mount Si.

GB Sale!

Hello readers,

Today I am sharing with you some valuable information .  A local company that makes the most amazing EXPENSIVE votive candle holders, is having their annual sale.  This will be my first year and I’m planning to add a couple more to my collection of one.  This is their “seconds” sale, or what they believe to be the “imperfect” ones.  To me, I’m excited to get a couple that are imperfect to the expert and maybe even one that is really off the charts.  See Glassybaby’s candle holders are in some crazy way very uniform.  When you enter one of their local stores, each glassybaby have practically the same shape as the next.  Part of the Sale aura is that seconds are untouchable until Sale day.
These make awesome gifts, beautiful decorations, and illuminate in such a unique way.  Each are handblown individually to make each glassybaby one -of-a-kind.  and I absolutely love the story behind them… seen here!

I’ll be seeing you in those crazy lines waiting not-so-patiently to get my hands on a few imperfect little gems!

Sorry for the delay of house updates, but the recent changes don’t show much in pictures.  We finally have walls up and a garage door.  Even though in person we can see the changes made everytime, it is hard to show in pictures.  This week we should start to see painting on the inside and possibly some millwork.  We won’t be out again until Sunday so until then…here are a few to tide you over.
