Okay, so 2010 brings us a new year, a new decade and for me...a new adventure, entering blogland. I am fascinated and inspired by all of the amazing blogs I read but thought I could never do that. Then this past Christmas eve, we had a huge snowfall (2-3 inches is huge for us in this part of Texas). I was looking out of my front window watching the snow fall and noticed a little bench I have on my front porch. A simple, white, metal birdhouse sits on that bench and it was covered in snow. All of a sudden, it hit me and I thought, "that looks just like one of those pictures I see on the blogs, for White Wednesdays or whatever it's called." Maybe I could do a blog; maybe I should do a blog. I would at least have that little picture for it. So, you would think that my first post ever with my first picture ever would be of that simple white birdhouse on a snowy bench on my front porch, right? Of course not. I didn't take a picture of it! I was so caught up in the thoughts in my head while looking at that little birdhouse that I didn't even think to get a picture. Snow doesn't last long here in Texas and by the time I thought about taking a picture, the snow was gone. Live and learn.
So, I'll start with this. This is my house. Hopefully this year, my house will see some improvements and changes...on the cheap. I am all about having my home look like something out of a magazine but I won't pay for it. I like to find things that cost little, use things in unexpected ways and do it all myself (or with my husband's self). Cute house, huh? Looks like a cottage which is what I like but it's actually 2 stories (4 bd, 3 bath, 3 living areas). Now, I know what you are thinking...you took a picture of the front of the house in the snow so why didn't you take the picture of the birdhouse? My husband took these pictures and I didn't know it. Apparently, the birdhouse vision didn't really hit him.
