our home will turn 100 years old this year and we couldn't be more proud of the old girl.  she's the reason we started this blog - to document our renovation adventures - 90% of which we did totally DIY with the help of some amazing family members and friends. (see our very first blog post here).

when we bought her, she was a little rough around the edges but we couldn't wait to get started on all the projects waiting for us just beyond that bottle of champagne....

this is how we first met her in october of 2009...

sexy right?  

and this is how we got right down to business a month and a half later when she was officially ours... 

after a lot of hard work and whole lotta love, she's finally coming around...
