Welcome to the Renovation Reveal Party for the Hotel Thompson or as my cousin called it the Casa Thompson! My buddy Fozzie is going to co-host this party. To get things started, please enjoy some wine, soda and some snacks. Then sit back for the reveal and let us know what you think. If you have questions, ask. Mingle and have fun my dear friends!!
The following food was brought by Kali and Shoko of Canadian Cats. Everyone be sure to try some of these Canadian delicacies. I’m licking my lips now and fixing to jump in – YUMMO!
Poutine – French fries with gravy and cheese – how could you go wrong with this? Beaver Tails – Now Beatrice and Billy were not harmed in the making of this sweet treat – 🙂 Beaver Tails are pastries shaped like beaver tails with chocolate and banana or chocolate and M&M’s. Personally this little porker NEEDS one with banana and chocolate. Nanaimo Bars – These are named after a city in Vancouver Island. They have three layers of deliciousness – coconut, graham cracker crumbs, chocolate and custard.
Okay my friends – do you remember the ‘before’ pictures? Let me remind you what they looked like okay.
The front room was a cluttered mess as well as the kitchen area. It was definitely time to ‘grow up’ and get a new look. Below are now the ‘after’ pictures.
The entry way into the Casa Thompson. The new sofa. The new chaise – ❤
The overall front room view from the hallway. The new kitchen island. The new cedar flooring in the bathroom.
Thanks to my friend Jean with Canadian Cats (Shoko and Kali) for the beautiful virtual potted plant for the new Casa Thompson. It’s beautiful! And thank you my friends for bringing food to the party – I’m still licking my lips! And many thanks for the long phone calls, listening to me whine while drinking my wine 🙂
Thanks to my brother Easy and his mom for listening to my mom’s troubled woes during the ordeal – snorts – there were a LOT. Your emails kept her sane… well okay as sane as she could be.
Thanks for my great co-host and partner in crime Fozzie. You mean the world to us my sweet dear friend. The phone calls, the emails, the rants and raves.
Much love to all of YOU and to those that listened to the endless ramblings here in blogville about the renovation. We were so glad that we could share everything with all of you my dear friends!!
