I was looking back over some photos
of the house from the past two years.
This is what we started with in the Winter of 2011
right after we bought the house.
Heavy old drapery, dirty siding, over grown shrubs,
and broken lighting
dressed the front like a soggy wet blanket.
Even from the side it was lacking some sparkle!
Early Spring 2011
the house received new windows.
We also upgraded the front door
and power washed the siding.
During the window installation,
our installer unknowingly
gutted some of the front hedge!
The Fall of 2011 saw a few more changes with
the addition of new lighting, new siding on the upstairs peak,
and a painted front door!
With the indoor renovations completed it came time
to address the front landscaping!
So out with the old....
... and in with the new!
In the next two years we expect it will fill in very nicely!
We were still lacking a little something...
so we built a window box for the upstairs window!
All dressed up for Christmas!
Even from the side, she now sparkles!
From our house to yours
we hope and pray that this New Year
will bring you plenty of joy and sparkles!
Happy Belated New Year!
