February 2

Smiling Sally's Blue Monday Meme

I was reading some newsletters and saw this on Better Homes
and Gardens e-magazine.  Thought it was perfect for Blue Monday.
I had a birthday Friday and my family surprised me with a new
galaxy tablet. It is so much fun and so light.
My son even brought me some pretty flowers!

Before: Not-So-Cute Cottage

Before: Not-So-Cute Cottage
The off-center front door threw off the balance of the otherwise symmetrical facade, and a covered porch spanning the home's front blocked natural light. Striped awnings on the upper windows made the upstairs equally dark and dreary.

    After: Happy Home

    After: Happy Home

    Removing the slope-roofed porch, then centering the front door and surrounding it with a smaller, flat-roofed porch with side panels and pillars gives this home a happier exterior. Low-maintenance vinyl siding in ocean blue contrasts nicely with the wood door and white trim.

                                                My birthday presents from my family!
