As usual, I am late to the game. I remember several years ago my computer nerd husband introduced me to the term “blog” and told me it was going to take off and people everywhere would be “blogging”. I must confess, I said “that sounds stupid” and “why would anyone want to read someone else’s stuff?”. Well, here I am eating my words (happens often) and I am officially becoming a “blogger”. What will I “blog” about? I’m not really sure but I think it will be about all the great, not so great, fun, not so fun, spiritual, not so spiritual, wise, and not so wise things that happen in my “life on the shady grove”. And of course, lots of pictures of things I find beautiful. So….here we go!
This is our home on the shady grove…Welcome!
We just had our home painted. I have always dreamed of a white farm house so I am trying to transform my house to my dream. I just love how it turned out! We used Sherwin Williams “Roman Column”. It is a great warm white that is not too harsh. It looks a little creamy in this pic but it is actually much whiter.
We just added new front doors and hardware. Our previous doors were pretty but painted black. I attempted to strip them but it was a total fail…now we have beautiful new doors. They bring so much light into the house.
We added a barn light over the window on this side of the house because it was so dark at night. It gives the window box a nice glow.These are my sheep. Well, they aren’t really mine but they are in my backyard and I pretend they are mine. My kids think I love the sheep more than them…they are sweet, kind and obedient to their shepherd…they could be right.
