Friday Faves. . . except NOT.

I know, I know. It's Friday.
And here I am.
With no Fabulous Faves post.
Sorry.

Truth is, we've been a bit busy here at the Troops.

Project #1 is done.

Only because the Coach hired a friend to do it FOR us.
Now you know our secret.

Here is our house the way it's been since we moved here 2 1/2 years ago.


And here it is after the addition of some black (shutters) and red (door) paint. I'm so pleased.




Something about the all white look just wasn't me.

(Because I LOVE color. Lots of color. Red, in particular.)

But this. . . I can live with this.

So I guess I do have a Fabulous Friday Favorite today.

It would be paint.


(And a painter to go along with it.)

Happy Friday!

Your house looks great, Karen! I love red doors! :)

It was nice to see you stopped by on my blog. I'm a newbie, but it's kind of fun. I've enjoyed taking a look at yours!
