In the meantime, here is a quick update on our exterior. You can read about all of our painting and landscaping projects here and how we found a ton of free river rocks here. Can you believe I was just one rock short?!
I bought two small boxwoods to frame the doorway. I really hope I can keep them alive! I think having some greenery around the door, especially in the winter, will be wonderful. I also got some small yellow mums on sale. I enjoyed the cheery yellow buds for the short amount of time they lasted. I also got a new welcome mat. It doesn't track in nasty brown fibers and has enough holes in it to air out pretty quickly. I think the basket weave design added a homey touch. Now I just need some free time to paint my door!
Happy October everyone!
