Sneak peek at our new hardwood floors!

WOW! I just returned to my home this evening and cannot believe how much they got done today…they ripped out the carpet and old hardwood and basically finished the living and dining room, half of the kitchen and a bit of family room as well! I am ecstatic, I just want my husband to come home to enjoy the new floors with us. I’ll get some better photos with my camera tomorrow after they finish the job.

16th-Century Home on the Yucatán Peninsula

Nicolas Malleville, an Argentine model, and his wife, Francesca Bonato, an Italian fashion designer, bought a 16th-century building in Valldolid on the Yucatán Peninsula, which they converted from a one-room basic structure to a two-bedroom 5,000-square-foot home shaped around a courtyard.

the couple bought the house in 2005 for $200,000 and spend spent about $80,000 on the renovation. my favorite room is the main room which has floor tiles that date back to the 16th century! via

400 yr old french cottage renovation

i just spent an hour reading this wonderful blog, StephModo
in a nutshell, a California couple on a whim puts in a lowball offer on a 400 yr old stone cottage. It is located in southern France and rests atop an enchanting Medieval village! the offer is accepted and the blog follows their journey to France and the renovation.

One of my fav. posts is about her daughter’s school lunches!

the gorgeous, renovated bathroom. you can see the rest of the before and after photos here
