A FAMILY IN NEED BRINGS A COMMUNITY TOGETHER

One of my biggest fears is fire...a fire that would take away my home and all the things that I treasure.  On November 11, 2012 a fire made a small Abbotsford home inhabitable for an elderly couple and with no insurance, the community came together in a BIG way.  You can read the story http://www.theprovince.com/life/Generous+Abbotsford+volunteers+give+burned+Connor+family+spectacular+Christmas+gift+rebuilt+home/7735307/story.html
Thanks to this lady (my partner in crime from the Million Dollar Neighbourhood) I was honoured to be one of the many volunteers organized by the Abbotsford Police and Fire Departments to rebuild this home.  As part of the decor team, I was one of a small group of people who designed,  picked colours, shopped, collected donations and did our very best to create a beautiful home for the Connor family.

On reveal day, many people toured the home before the family arrived but I just thought you may want to see some inside scoop photos!  The whole house was rebuilt inside, furniture and decor was donated and just look at the amazingly beautiful built-in unit that was created for this family! 
This is a view from the living room into the kitchen.  Even the coffee table was created using an old window from the original home...Love it!
 
This is the master bedroom
And this is the second bedroom.(sideways!!) The house is small but very cozy and filled with memories and love.  The love from the many generations that have lived on this property and the love of the community who rebuilt it!
 
Welcome home Connor family!
