A few of my favorite things and a Give-Away!

This title goes hand and hand and you will see why at the end.

We bought an old house 8 years ago. I love the character of an older home. The history behind building it, the family that it was to house when designing it. I love it all. Even the challenges it brings when trying to update some of it's horrible unique details....{Like a Pepto Bismol Pink and Turquoise Master Bathroom with Flower power wallpaper.}....

There should have been one thing that was a huge positive for the year our home was built which was; a REALLY mature yard. You know, the ones with the massive hydrangea, gardenia, rose and camellia bushes.  Not so.

Unfortunately when we moved into our 1930's home with no central air, the yard was the least of our emergency updating. It did however have so many "mature"  azaleas up against the home you could hardly see out the front windows; and the roaches from them.....oh, the roaches!

It wasn't long before I had Tim hooking a chain up to them attached to our 4wheel drive vehicle and ripping up what would appear to be the Holy Shrub of the Garden District.

Let's just say, the looks we got that day were one's that you would think were for people that should belong in the Loony Bin.

Our home, like any home New or Old is a work in progress, but thankfully several years ago we gave the front yard to Rhoda Boone at Buds 'n Blossoms and she worked her Magic!
