As I have mentioned before I have allergies now. Didn't start with them until we moved up here and when tested the guy thought it was probably due to some crop, and we think it is the yellow blooms on the canola oil crop. However since then I have suffered with allergies more and more throughout the year.
Ontario is a hot bed for allergies for some reason and our doctor was saying that people from Western Europe who move over here normally take around 8 to 10 years living here before they become susceptible to allergies. He was also saying people from California are the same. So I guess I was lucky as we will have been in Canada 24 years at the end of this month.
This week's "Home of the Week," is lovely on the outside, but needs a bit of work on the inside. The bathrooms and the kitchen need to be gutted, which surprises me, as I would have thought at $2.4 million it would have all been updated? It's got good bones and for someone willing to add a bit more money to it, it will be a wonderful family home.
This week's "Condo of the Week," is different with the three levels. Also did you see the light "fixture" in the kitchen? Also what's with the third level dining room? Plus I wouldn't want to sit on that bench for any length of time. I bet they paid a small fortune for that dining room set and its horrible. I am not a huge fan of industrial lofts period and this one is no exception, despite it "only" on for $715,000!!
There's also a feature called: Condo Showdown: five sumptuous residences in Toronto luxury hotels; which you can read about here. If I had that sort of money, I would not be buying a condo in the middle of Toronto!!
I finished dd table runner and thought I'd share a couple of photos. It's around 58 inches long and 19 inches wide. The photos don't do it justice. This is the front:
This is the back:
Finally my goal is to finish up my kitchen post for tomorrow....but don't hold your breath!
