Front Porch Update

 Some projects take longer than others.

 Like our Front Porch

Even though it's not complete,
I've decided to let you see how it's coming along
I won't even be tempted to tell you about all the parts that aren't finished.

Where we Started

 To this years Changes

Yellow Bird (see below) is one of my favorite Details.
Buzz had carved him years ago and I found just the perfect spot for him

To how it looks Today

Yellow Bird , Rusty Hearts & A Yellow Caterpillar

The process has been a little bit like putting lipstick on a pig, but we simply couldn't justify tearing down the original deck.  So ... we've just made the best of what we had.  Eventually, we'll have it just right, even though it's taking us a L O N G time to get there.

In the mean time, we're already enjoying our porch time a whole lot more 

We love the sounds of the birds,
the smell of honeysuckle
the friendly little
sparrows who pay us a visit.

Oh the Joy!  

Porch Time is Definitely Improving! 

  I'll keep you posted on upcoming changes
(just in case you were wondering)
