New House Plans and Weekend Links

 photo Plans_zps4bfd9c74.jpg

We have house plans, not only plans but three different options to choose from! With a little tweaking, one of the plans just might be getting us a little closer to starting our renovations. I am so excited. A new kitchen, more light, no more carpet, new floors. I do love our quirky house which was last renovated in 1972, but I think it's time to let a few things go & bring the house into the modern era.

On the web this week:
A reporter's personal story the persecution of LGBT people in Russia - read here. That these types of laws can be enshrined in 2013 is downright scary and makes me want to ensure that in Australia's up coming election that a government is elected here that will uphold and enshrine rights for LGBT people.

On a lighter note....
Cute ideas for decorating with cupcake wrappers on Hey Look.
15 toys you can make with a cardboard box on Apartment Therapy

Happy Saturday!
