And we have LIFT OFF.....


"The kitchen
The kitchen is all grey walls, wood cupboards with aluminium inserts, steel under-bar fridges (converted to cupboards) and catering prep tables. We’re going for a Steampunk look in the kitchen; which is very popular in the States and involves a setting where steam power is widely used. It all started during the late 80’s and early 90’s and uses elements of science fiction, fantasy, alternate history and horror." read more HERE

Johan bought me this awesome gumball machine as a birthday present.

But times they are a changing...

Man, you gotta love Paint Stripper that actually works. It really was so cool to watch it in full attack mode.

And we have LIFT OFF...

I totally love what we did with it and am so happy with the end result.

I stumbled across this article from Jeanine @ I heart Interiors - WOW !! I never knew one could do this. Jeanine I feel your pain and frustration at having my images all over the internet without a credit.

Tutorial :: Finding An Image Source

I think everyone has images they saved from somewhere that they've either forgotten where it was from or the source wasn't named to begin with. 

Here is how to do it:

First go to google images, then click on the little camera icon on the right of the text box to search by image.

I hope this is helpful to everyone.  I used it on a few of my images but it was so frustrating seeing how many images from my little blog are out there and not credited at all {hence my recent attempt at watermarking}.  I have to admit I found out how to do this when I was in a bad mood and I sent out emails to some of the offenders.

So this is what has been keeping me so busy. We getting there slowly.

Welcome to our stand, the site which will be our home very soon. Looking at this photo makes me so sad as my darling best assistant in the world Sooty, tragically died at the end of 2011. She just loved running around on site.

 The arrival of the long awaited Containers. The day they stood these babies up has got to be one of the most stressful days of 2011.

And the building finally started!

 We got these Stunning French Antique Bedroom cupboards.

A Bath! Can't wait to Splish and a splash.

A very interesting roof.

That's just me being a Builder Betty.

And some trees for the courtyard.
