So many of my friends and family have asked me who my house is coming along- so I thought I would include some photos on my blog to share with you. For those of you that don't know- I bought a 1800's Victorian Cottage last year and with A LOT of help from my sister and brother-in-law - I have quite an adorable place to call home. I took the first photo from acrss the street. I wanted to get a good shot showing the newly painted picket fence. My brother-in-law, power washed it and then my mom, my sister, myself, my brother-in-law and my young neice and nephew all painted it. It turned out awesome! The neighbors have commented on how great it looks. The arbor, my sister found in a clearance section at a store- she got it for some amazingly low price! I love it and can't wait until there are flowers draping over it.
I love hydrangeas and am so proud of how well mine are doing this year. I planted them last year and am amazed at how quickly they are growing.
This is the last shot for today. I love this one, with the flag, porch railing and hydrangeas. I will try to get some interior shots posted soon. There has been a lot of work going on in there also.
This week while working in my garden, I was planting flowers and a car stopped a woman asked me if I was interested in some more plants. She had been seperating some of her plants and so she bought over a bunch for me. She said she will be seperating day lilies next week and wanted to know if I wanted any of them- of course I said yes. It amazes me how kind the people in the small town I live in are- it definitly makes me happy that I chose to live here. I hope I can pass the kindness on that others have shown me. Have you done something nice for a stranger lately? or has a stranger done something nice for you? I would love to hear about it.
