Big NEWS!!!

As you may or may not have guessed! THE MANOR is SOLD!!!!!!!!! We were very lucky we only had to show it for one week, as it turns out the first person who saw it bought it, we kept showing it as back-up! I really didn't like having strangers walking through the house so we were so relieved when the sale was finalized!!!
We are both over the MOON!!!! That means we can buy a  house, a real house, no strata, no rules just our own house!!!! :) I couldn't be anymore excited we have a house in our sights but I don't want to jinx it until we've got it, so maybe later this week we'll have an even more exciting post!!!!

But with all good there is a little bad, we are definitely going to miss our original townhouse Manor. We literally poured blood, sweat and tears into this place, but it is time to move on. I didn't sleep a wink last night I've been too excited! For those of us who know us well and that includes our wonderful readers!  They know that it's always been our dream to own a fully detached house, although I think Lee mostly cares about the garage! hehe
We are going to miss our beloved townhome and all of our fantastic neighbors, even the crazy lady who's scared of Max ( all 4 pounds of him ). Here's some of the little things we'll miss and some pictures we haven't shared yet! ( some out of shear embarrassment ).
The finch nests we put in  maple  tree off of our balcony! No finches ever used them, but they were pretty none the less :)

Our balcony during the summer months:

The living room started out like this:

Now it's like this:
Hanging out on the couch, browsing the ikea catalog!

Here's one of my very poor design decisions. This wallpaper is the same pattern as the bedroom wallpaper, but in a navy blue. I thought that It would be cool to have the en-suite and the master bedroom  match, it was not!  I still love the paper it's just a little too dark and a little too formal for me! But here's my attempt anyways.

Here's what it looks like now:

One thing I've noticed from the photos I've added is that over the 3 + years we've lived here it seems like our style has evolved to a lighter and brighter scheme! Which is something I will definitely carry over to our new house! 
So Long story short, We SOLD our town house!!!!! WOO-HOO, we are a little sad, but mostly SUPER DUPER EXCITED! and I'll need to take a nap today because I've been too excited to sleep!

Last night I caught Lee making secret garage plans on the back of a napkin (gotta love him)!


  1. Congrats! Can't wait to see some pictures of the new manor :)

  3. LOL...I knew it! Congratulations. I am so happy for both of you. I cannot wait to see your new home and what you do with it. You will take with you many wonderful memories and create many new ones in your new place. I totally understand the garage thing. Hubby is a big car fanatic...races his Corvette occassionally and instructs for BMW driving schools...gotta have a place for all that stuff!
