A Sneak Peek

I had been working all evening on this post to share with you. Updated pictures of the house. I had written in my post, that was burned in the fire, how I had taken a blogger break, due to too many holiday activities. I am not one who multi-tasks well. I wrote thanking everyone for their holiday wishes and for stopping in to check on me, while I was on hiatus. Then I saved everything, was going around visiting everyone and then I decided to clean up the other two files under my profile. They were the ones I played around with, when working on different backgrounds. Well I messed around and deleted my real blog, all your wonderful comments, and my wonderful is gone.

I went into the kitchen and found a couple of leftover toothpicks and have used them to prop open my eyelids to yet again start a post for today, that is a little more uplifting....A Sneak Peek...

Sneak Peek? You say...Yes, I say...we haven't moved in yet....this is like the Song that Never Ends from Sponge Bob...the house that is never finished!

So without further adeu...

Formal Dining Room
This was the paint color that almost wasn't.
I almost lost my nerve to paint it red,

I am so glad I went for it!

Foyer View
This is looking into the dining room from the foyer.
I really like how the colors go together!

Looking into the Foyer

Breakfast Room
Remember my chandelier that I bought at the Farm Auction?
It is going to hang here, over my table!

Master Bath Chandelier
I LOVE this! I think it is my favorite thing in the house.
One of the contractors, had hang each and every dangle.
Daniel...bless his little heart.
It is that time again to

I will posting again soon with some delightful goodies to help
you celebrate this chilly season!

Hi Jill, I am so relieved to hear from you as I was really beginning to wonder. I was worried for yur children and then I thought of your mom and dad and then I thought what if you had some kind of creepy bloggy thing happen. I couldn't figure out why you just stopped posting. I thought maybe it was just Christmas and finishing up the new house. I am so sorry about the delete blog thing, if there is anything I can do let me know. I will try to add in a new shout out for ya in my next post and let friends know what happened. I am just so glad your back. I checked weekely to see and when my blog roll said it had been 5 weeks since you last posted, I thought wqe had lost you for good.
Welcome back and I look forward to many more pictures of your new house. It is looking fabulous. Love the red.

Oh Jill! I'm so sorry about your blog fire! UGH... that's why I'm afraid to mess with a new background and such.

I have your original sneak peek post of the house in my google reader if you need it. What a shame to lose all of your gorgeous posts. Everything was deleted from your google photo albume as well?!
Well girl, I must say that I'm glad I was along for the ride from the begining, and I remember every beautiful detail.

The house looks incredible! LOVE the paint colors. LOVE that chandy, it is so perfect there! LOVE your kitchen cabs and can't wait to see more!!

My goodness, Jill, I haven't been online for a couple of days and when I came by tonight, the banner picture was all different. Then, I read about your blog fire!!! OMG, I'd just be sick as I know you were. Looks like you are rebuilding the blog very well and your house pictures look wonderful. It won't be long till you'll have everything back just like you want it. Just think of it as a new beginning! Love your house but I really come by to read your posts as well. You have such good ideas and I enjoy visiting your spot. Hope you'll come by to see me from time to time. Till later - Sharon
