Hello friends, I can hardly believe how much time has passed since I last posted. I gave some serious thought to letting go of the blog but after much consideration, I decided I was not ready to do so. I have missed you all and I’m happy to be back. From farmhouse to Cape Cod.
Some of you might know that we moved so that has consumed much of my time for the last year moving and then moving again. I finally found a darling cape on a lovely old street in the village of the town I grew up in. The streets are lined with beautiful old trees and the park is a stones throw away.
The house was cute but I knew there was room to bump up the curb appeal so after nearly 10 months it is just about there! This is the before.
I did small updates, nothing was terribly costly. The updates include a new light fixture, I painted the existing mailbox and added new numbers. I had the trim around all the front windows redone and got new shutters that were the full length of the windows, a new storm door with a self-storing screen (perfect when you don’t have room to store the screen), landscaping (I picked out all the plants and put in myself!), brick edging (installed myself), pots, relocated a new flag and added a pediment over the door. I guess I need a railing, says the insurance company so that is going in soon. Here is the after!
Thank you for visiting! xo Susan
