Gravel Path – ORC Week 3

The One Room Challenge Week 3 update is here! It’s been super hard waiting to plant all of my flowers, but luckily there is plenty to keep me busy. The hubby reminded me that we should wait for the painters to be done so that way there is no chance of everything getting trampled.

House Color

It’s time to choose a house color! We have been looking at house colors since about the day we moved in. The green on our house just doesn’t make us happy. There’s just nothing special about it. So now that we are actually ready to get it painted (see that post here), we get the lovely task of actually making a decision on the color.  Continue reading “House Color”
