Puttin On A Pretty Face

Hello, Dear Ones! Well, I have some more snaps of things we've done to the front of our house. So our new/old home is putting on a prettier face today!
 Do you see anything different about her?
 I keep showing you this snap of the front of our house when we bought her so this is a good comparison to what we have today!
 Do you see what we've done? Well, we had railings added to the front porch! I just never did think the front of the house looked finished without these railings. First of all, the drop off from the front porch is pretty high and I didn't want our little grandbabies taking a tumble! I just love how it looks now!
 Then...we had the old white shutters taken off and had burgundy colored ones put up. There were no shutters on the windows on either side of the front door so we had some put there too and I think that looks so much better now, don't you?
 So much nicer.
 Here you can see the porch isn't very deep but it's long. One more thing, we want to get some Cracker Barrel rocking chairs for out here. Most of our neighbors have them! Won't that look great and I can decorate a little bit out here. We also took off that old black screen on the front door and replaced it with the glass panel and now you can really see my red door! :)
 Oh, y'all, our house is becoming so happy! It's not quite as grand as our previous house was but it looks so comfy cozy to me and we are feeling right at home now (even though I still have a gazillion boxes to unpack)!
Friday night little Carter, who's 4 now, spent the night with us. She was so excited and we had a great time. Her mommy picked her up at 12:30 pm and took her to a birthday party and dropped off little Campie, who is a year old, for me to babysit. I feel so loved and so blessed to have had all of this time with my babies! 
Okay, I'll quit bubbleing about my babies and show you a little snap of the woods next to us! It's only about a 1/2 block and we're loving it. I haven't dared out into it because my daughter says there are ticks out there. No, no, Nannette, I don't want no ticks! :)
Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)
 




I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~ 

You Are So Beautiful


You are so beautiful, to me
You are so beautiful, to me
Can't you see, you're everything I hoped for
You're everything that I need, you are so beautiful, to me
You are so beautiful, to me
You are so beautiful, to me
Can't you see, you're everything I hoped for
Everything that I need, you are so beautiful, to me
