Blog friends

One of the best things I've found since starting this blog is meeting so many wonderful people. For the most part, the meeting is 'virtual', but I've also been lucky enough to meet some of my fellow bloggers in person.

Yesterday, I was invited to the home of the lovely Jenny of The Five Year Project, and we spent the morning chatting and sharing renovation stories over a cuppa. Jenny is as warm and friendly in person as she is on her blog, and I fell head over heels for her beautiful Queenslander, which she and her husband are in the process of renovating. For those of you who haven't had the pleasure of a visit to her blog, here's just a little snippet of what you'll find there:

we had morning tea at this gorgeous table, which Jenny refinished herself

would you look at the domed ceiling - it's even more stunning in the flesh

...nothing like a great before and after, is there?

 Jenny's very talented husband built this kitchen island himself

her lovely, renovated master bedroom

hand-painted stripes in Jacob's room

Thanks for a great morning Jenny, and if you haven't already, pop on over to Jenny's blog - you can see all of the fantastic befores-and-afters on show. 

Also, thanks everyone for the lovely comments on yesterday's post - you guys are the best. Can't say it enough.

Have a great day,
