My first entry!

I thought I would use this first post to introduce myself and my little fur family!My name is Ashley and I started this blog as a way to document our little life & attempts at DIY and renovating our old home. I have been married for 5 years to the love of my life, Mr.Creighton and we have spent our 5 years of wedded bliss renovating our new old home. We love our home- I have always had a thing for old Victorian homes-but I seriously underestimated how much work and moula go into keeping up an old home. Here is our 100+ year old beauty:

This was taken a couple of years ago but not much has changed to the exterior…except a few ill-fated attempts at gardening and adding some curb appeal. The exterior is most definitely still a work in progress. Our little family that lives under this roof include my hubby & I, here at my sister’s wedding just a few weeks ago

and here is a photo of the loves of our lives- our 3 furry children- 2 dogs- an old man whom we affectionately call Goldie Oldie (Rally) and an energetic 3 year old Australian Shepherd (Ozzy). They are best friends.

And finally we have our 5 year old cat, Ernie, that we adopted from our loval animal shelter the day we moved into our old home. He is a very easy-going little dude.

So there you have the residents of La Casa Creighton. We are hoping to add some 2-legged children to our little family someday soon and will keep you posted! For now, we are enjoying life & our DIY adventures.
