I love my soffit and fascia.
If I had EVER had a brand spankin' new house, I'm not sure I would have ever said that.
But I moved into an OLD OUTDATED circa 1960's house.
Turquoise SHAG carpet (AKA Turquoise GAG) in the dining room with matching striped turquoise wallpaper.
Mustard yellow GAG carpet in the living room with matching draperies and thing-a-ma-bobs sewn onto them.
Acoustical tile squares on the ceiling.
Dark wood paneling throughout the entire house.
When we bought the house I was so dang glad to have a house I didn't mind.
(We had moved out of a tiny apartment with our four children and I was so happy to have a house that was big.)
Over the years walls have been taken down.
Ceiling have been made beautiful.
Nasty carpet has been removed.
Bathrooms have completely been renovated.
Beautiful carpet laid beside beautiful wood floors.
My hubby built a beautiful brick surround for my woodburning stove.
And a hearth.
I love my hearth.
My hubby is very talented.
(I'm neither talented NOR patient.)
It's often been PAINFULLY slow.
But the finished project has always been beautiful and worth it.
Our last project was painting the outside of the house.
putting up beautiful soffit and fascia.
Thank you to my three sons and cute son-in-law (who really knew what he was doing).
While they were working hard on Saturday...
I took a rooster Trick-or-Treating.
Also took a John Deere tractor, cute farmer huh?
Dorothy of Never Neverland or Oz or somewhere managed to show up in her red sparkly shoes.
(I'm still disconnected without a laptop.
It still takes 7 minutes to download a picture.
There are blogs I can't post comments on because of the dinosaur desktop I'm using.
I've asked for an early Ground Hog's Day present.
Hopefully the Great Groundhog will get my letter )
