Has it really been 3 months???

Hi girls,
Cant believe it has been 3 months since i posted,where has the time gone? Actually i know where its gone,i have been doing kitchen renovations and working full time and studying!
Finally after 6 years in our house we decided to do the kitchen and some renovations.We knocked down a dividing wall between the kitchen and our back family room to make a ginormous kitchen.It all had to be replastered,new ceilings,the full works.The kitchen went in 2 weeks ago but i am still awaiting all my appliances connected : ( hopefully soon......
I am so so happy with it so far,exactly what i wanted.I wanted French,stone,sparkly chandeliers,huge oven and lots of new red and white china.I tiled the walls in a cobblestoned Travertine marble which i love,restored 2 magnificent antique brass and swarovski crystal French chandeliers,painted the floorboards a gloss white,wall sconces with Ashwell linen and filled the cupboards with 2 new maxwell and williams dinner sets,new silver cutlery,and red and white polka dot mugs and bowls.I still have to finish some plastering,have the pair of French doors into the courtyard installed and a bit of painting,then can out the final photos!So that is part of what has kept me busy!
I have gone back to nursing full time and also do some study,so doesnt leave much spare time! But i have found some time to sew some lovely new cushions which i have listed,and i have used mushy squishy heavy feather inserts!Very happy with how they have turned out! I have been very quiet on the ebay front lately,i have had enough orders to keep me busy!And with a new bunch of English doctors fresh off the plane who like to go out for a drink,i have also gone back to my youth and been partying far too hard.I see some good nights out in the upcoming summer!
Anyway,i hope everyone is well and i will try to read some blogs tonight,i have a rare Friday evening at home!Will post finished pics as soon as it is all done,but in the meanwhile here are a few shots from along the way.....
