Yellow House

The house painting is finally finished! I am very happy with the results. There were a few days when I thought why didn't I just pick gray or tan? But I am glad that I did not chicken out, I like the yellow. It was time for a change and it will be yellow for a long time to come. We decided not to put the shutters back on the house. I like the look.

This side of the house was added back in 1992. It is funny how back then we needed extra room. Now, I wish we could go back to the original house size. Less to clean!

I like the blue door!

The wreath was on sale at Jo Anne's for $13.00.

I have had these blue pots for years. They go nicely with the blue door.
I had to put the wind chime back in it's place. I love the sound it makes, but for some reason it has been very quiet since I put it back. Maybe it has been a calm summer. I hope when the fall comes it starts to chime again.

This bird house has to be ten years old. You can see it has been used a bit over the years.

I had to buy a new mat for the porch. The colors are perfect even though this picture is rather dark. Well, that is the new look of our house. I am happy with it. I have always wanted a yellow house.

Thanks for visiting!
