I hope you will enjoy my shabby style in decorating our home and garden!!!

Our house was built in 1947 by my grandfather. He built the house room by room as he got the money. I love this old house and it means so much to me. My dad was very young at the time and he said that he had to help sand the hardwood floors. He can still remember doing it. As any old house goes there are always lots of things that need to be done and updated.We have been working on doing that for the past 10. We have added a new roof and windows and lots of work on the inside and yard. I created this blog to share my love of decorating, painting and gardening. I hope that you will enjoy looking at it. I have started with pictures of the yard.

I like to paint!! Here are some of the things I have painted in the yard.

These are some of the things that I have painted in the yard. I hated the oil tank so I painted it the color of the house so it would blend in and then painted a bird house and some plants on it. It doesn't look so bad now. The Welcome to Our Nest was painted on a piece of slate from our church roof and the fence was really a fun thing to paint.
