Our home tour

Every January I try and snap some pictures of our house to document the small renovations and changes that we have made during the previous year. As always, our home is a work in progress and we have lists and lists of things that we want to do - time and money permitting. It is not because our house necessarily needs any changes (we are very blessed with the house we have), but more because we are DIY fans and love coming up with plans and visions for each room. It's a passion of mine. None of these renovations/ideas are urgent or will necessarily be done in the near future - but they are a part of our long term plans.
