Update on My House Painting Project and a New Little Country Garden

























While my house was getting painted I also started thinking about planting a little  country garden straight out in front of my shop door. As I sit at my desk on the computor I can see the big yard where the vendors used to set up when the show first started at my house. It was kind of boring looking out the front door without the thoughts of the vendors coming back, so I decided to create a little place for my eyes to rest whle I do the computor work. Here is an update on the completed house painting project and my little beginning of the english country garden I now glance upon while working. XO Christie
















The house got painted a pure white with Garden green shutters and accents.

















Back of the house with my little porch and new screen door.


















pool house where I teach my classes. next project will be a new fence.
















my new little garden.

  12. Christie, The colors are perfect and I love the decorative trim in the cable end of your house. Wish I was sitting in that new English garden watching the California sunset. But the chandlier was the icing on the cake! Lots of hard work I know!

  13. I'm jealous you have ALL the room ;0) Everything looks beautiful, but I knew it would before I saw the pictures. It was so, so nice seeing you at Country Roads yesterday. I wish we didn't live so far apart from each other!! I have missed you. . .

    Take care my friend,
    Sue

  19. Dearest Christie,

    Bet you're glad you're past all that hassle of painting. We need to do ours too but not this year. Love your new look with the soft green shutters. You got very nice roses for natural subjects right at your fingertips!
    Love to you,

  22. Hi,
    Very nice, I assume that your a professional in this field of activity. Truly Most homeowners are eager to change the look of a room or do the necessary maintenance around the home, and why not? House painting is a skill that is acquired from knowledge and experience. The basics are easy to learn. I heard about www.affordablepainterswindsor.ca painters take great pride in their work and never leave a project until they are completely confident that you are happy with the job they performed at your residential property.
    Just thought might help.

  23. That bird house is beautiful. What kind of birds do visit in that garden?

  24. It looks like that you are a gardening freak like me. The garden you have made out of scratch and the plants you have planted are all fabulous. Keep posted on your latest projects.

  25. Way to go! I am pretty sure that when the plants and flowers bloom, your beautiful house will look eye-catching and fantastic. Anyway, I love that you painted your exterior walls white. It suits the environment of your house just fine.
