Just What DID We Do?

Great job everyone! We did hang something over the door. We've had it ever since moved into the house. We've had it for three houses now, actually. Thanks to hubby delaying FOREVER (love you honey) in getting it up, I actually had to paint it again, because it had began to rust. I love it though. The house was so "boxy" and as most of you know, I'm not a boxy person! It really breaks it up, and I'm very happy with that. Plus, there was all that dead space in between all 4 windows. Our neighbor said that one family had a large wreath hanging there, but I'm not much for wreaths unless it's Christmas....on the outside.

And yes, we took down the tree. There were two there when we bought the house, and hubby immediately took down one of them. I was able to spare the other one's life, but we soon found out the next year, that we cut down the wrong one. The one remaining wound up being a SweetGum, and they grow very fast, very large, and have branches that fall down easily. Not a good idea for 3 feet from the house, and over the front deck! So, it had to go. I thought I was going to hate it, but I LOVE all the open space! I love not having to duck under a tree to get to the van! And, it looks much better from the curb, it really does.

What did you all miss?.....We put up house numbers! On the rare occation that we have pizza delivered, I get the third degree from the pizza guy that he can't see the numbers on the mailbox, or the one's I have on a stone under our front tree, so these were just for him. They break up the "boxiness" of the house even more, and we really like the way they look with the other changes!

We have soooo much more to do out front, and I can't wait to show you when we are done. When it's finished, I will have to scan the pictures of the house when we first bought it, and show you the real before and after! We've chopped bushes down, enclosed the carport, added buildings, it will be a great comparision! Thanks for playing along!


  1. Kristi, You are such a godly woman, please feel free to skip my MLM posts. I value your friendship. Can we still be friends?

  2. You have been very busy! The lattice painted white really brightens up the front of your house.

    Sorry I haven't commented on your last several posts. It was a super crazy week here. I just got the chance to read through each of them.
    I will keep your son in my thoughts and prayers. I hope the dr. can get him some relief.

  3. Absolutely, my dear! I'm sure we all have something we feel passioately about, that someone else feels passionately the opposite on!

  4. Looks great - can't wait till it's all done and we can see the true before and after pictures.

    BTW - I sure do miss your insights on the Bible blog.
