She would often say… “this looks like the Psycho house!” She, being my darling sister– we call her Beeb. She really really disliked the color of this house. In fact she thought last Halloween it was perfect for the scary one on the block. (this is where you would see me simply shaking my head back and forth… you are nutzzz Beeb… it’s a nice house.)
Beeb and Popz have often been a subject of my blog – thank you for the inspiration you crazy KIDS!!
So, she went on a quest! Beeb and Popz happen to live in a community where they have VERY strict CCnR’s (did I say STRICT???) as in you sometimes see the community police slinking through the neighbor hood checking to see if you have planted a flower you didn’t get permission to plant. Ok, it’s not THAT bad… but almost.
Beeb drove around her community for a month I swear, and practically wore her lil eye balls out deciding on the color scheme for her house… then they had to go to the board to get approved…sigh… after a couple of tries… FINALLY they got the go ahead to change the paint color — and it started to rain– another delay.
Finally the transition began. These painters were awesome– they did such a great job.
This is a great shot to show the REAL contrast I thought.
At last!! Complete — I love it to pieces. The neighbors who often are out walking in the evening would stop by with their wonderful complements. They loved to see the progress.
The transformation is dramatic!
It doesn’t hurt that Mother Nature’s incessant rain–then snow–then more rain –have helped the colors to pop.
… And of course there are the details (it’s all in the details) that Beeb is so gifted with. She totally refurbished this clock inside and out and moved it from one place to another so cars passing by could see the clock a bit more easily.
These little critters are just adorable.
Bottom line the house looks GREAT… but it’s not just a house… This house is filled with love that oozes out!
They love one another and every day spending time doing for others is what they are all about.
It’s the love and beauty in this house that makes it a home. (above- Ms J and her Son C –Beeb and Popz Daughter and Grandson.)
If you stop by Beverly’s How Sweet the Sound you will find such fun things.
Also, if you are in love with fantastic yards stop by and see Tootsie and the other fantastic gardeners!
