Welcome Home!

Hopefully many of you are already aware of the Welcome Home Sweepstakes, which raises much needed funds for the Princess Margaret Cancer Care Centre. The Grand Prize this year is a gorgeous home valued at more than $4.3 million and located in beautiful Oakville, Ontario. Thanks to the hard work of Lynda Reeves and the House & Home design team, this home is 100% ready for your family to move in and enjoy!!

Last Thursday, a group of bloggers were invited by Canadian House & Home for a special preview of the house, and it was such a lovely place to spend a late summer evening. I'm willing to bet that the beautifully landscaped yard will enjoy many barbeques, picnics and parties in the future :-)

I snapped a few "sneak peek" photos of the home (which you can see below), but be sure to pay a visit in person if you have the chance. Viewing just started this past Saturday, so stop by the home weekdays from 4 pm to 8 pm, and weekends from 12 noon to 5 pm.

A modern but classic and family friendly kitchen.
Best Feature(s): Marble island, Aga stove.

The perfect dining room to entertain family & friends.
Best Element: Chandelier.

Restful Master Bedroom with Ensuite Bath.
Best Element(s): Private deck, Soaker bath.

Welcoming Guest Room in Shades of Gold and Grey.
Best Element(s): Hickory Chair bed, duvet cover.

If you don't have a chance to visit the home, at the very least do yourself a favour and buy a ticket!! You can't win if you don't have a ticket, and really, everyone wins if you do get one :-) Help conquer cancer in our lifetime!
