Show And Tell For Monday

Well now, isn't this a wonderment? We arrived home from visiting our son and his wife for 5 days and found that our master bath toilet had been leaking.... down the walls, through the dining room ceiling, onto the dining room table and finally onto the hardwood floor. The demolition started last Thursday, repair and reconstruction today. Our 26 year old home is biting the dust... and our bank account.

Watch for new projects to come in future postings!

Eileen or Karen,
Either way what a lot of work. But oooh la la what a wonderful bathroom you will have when it's remodeled. You must show us progress pix, okay? I could look at your logo for hours, sometimes I barely get to the blog cuz I like your logo so well, lol.

Karen, I do not envy the process, but you will have a new bathroom when it's finished! Yay! I can't wait to see the "after" shots... Hope it happens quickly!
Pink hugs, Karen

Hi Eileen,

It's amazing to me how you all do your own house renovations, something we city folks here are so inept of doing. We just call the repair man here! It must be a lot of work, I know!
Hope it gets done soon!

Hi Eileen!

Awww...so sorry about the mess. That's the last thing you needed. But hang in there. I bet once it is all repaired and decorated you will have forgotten it ever even happened. Hope the days ahead are filled with sunshine and roses.
XOXO

EEEK Eileen!!! What a greeting you had arriving home!

I'm a true believer that there's always something good that comes with tragedy.. But the only thought that comes to me is the same as Sita and Gail. Being forced to refresh your look is always nice. Good luck with your new project.
