Reluctant Renovator: I Fall to Pieces

It's too late to turn back now!!

As you can see from the photo above, we've gone past the point of no return with the renovation.  The initial plans & design are done, the material is ordered and the tile, which covers most of the first floor, is a thing of the past.

We spent the weekend throwing things out and packing up the rest.  I found the undecorating (removing photos, art, knick-knacks etc.) to be a tad traumatic, sentimental fool that I am, and it probably didn't help that Patsy Cline's tune "I Fall to Pieces" kept running through my head.

As an antidote, I revisited one of my favourite George Carlin riffs where he talks about "Stuff".  Thanks for the much needed perspective, George!

I've been pretty quiet, blog wise, since my initial renovation post And So It Begins back in November.  Planning & design are labour intensive but apparently not very blog worthy.  I do hope to make up for it now that things are really rolling along.  For those of you that are interested in a bit of a sneak peek, you can check out My Reno Pinterest Board to get a bit of an idea of where we are, hopefully, heading.  Dining, Kitchen and Interiors provided some of the inspiration.

Comments are most welcome, including your preference: Patsy or George?
