Let's start from the very beginning...it's a very good place to start. So now my house is a home. There is still a few things left to do...but there will always be things left to do, because creative people are never finished! But I wanted to give you a tour around my new home.
So I decided to start in the front yard. When I bought this house in early spring, the lawn was non-existent. Dirt everywhere. The house looked blah and bland...yellow brick, yellow roof, and yellow :) dirt. All one color. I tried to spruce up the front porch, but I still need shutters to complete the look.
I also got a lawn put in. I told the landscaper I was happy he chose green grass because it went so well with the patio furniture! The beds have drip systems in them. It will probably be next season before I plant flowers since it is September. I am excited to see color around here.
The mailbox is a community mailbox down the street. I am so happy when I turn around to walk back to my little cul-de-sac to see a home with green grass and life. It makes me feel alive, too.
