Will It Ever Be Spring????

I have so very much to do to the outside our our little tiny cottage, but the weather just will not cooperate....Need to paint, plant, and hopefully, build a little porch....I love this pic for inspiration...as you can see by the pic of my cottage on the sidebar...I have a very long way to go!

I need to turn this.............


Into this.................



Or this............



Wish me luck...I will need it!
(Disclaimer...if my wannabe pics are your house....thank you for the pic...can you please come help me???)

Our weather won't cooperate either! For every day of sun, we have five days of brrrrrr and clouds!

I too need to spruce up our curb appeal. Good luck! Wouldn't it be nice if the weather would cooperate for us all? The forecast is for snow here on Sunday - ahhh!

Hi, Your post is sooo great! I love it..especially the end comment! i vote for the second house ( has more windows=more light) with the arched door from the first house! my front door is actually Yellow! I love it but I could post someone else's door to show my dream door!!! (too bad that door doesn't lead to Hawaii!!!)
I will be back! I will have to look up fox lake.
With Kindness,
mary

The houses you are using for inspiration are very cute indeed. I really like the yellow, the porches, the white picket fence. I know that if anyone can perform a transformation it's you, but I know it must be daunting to think of what you want and where to start. Thanks for sharing your plans.

Sounds like the weather here. It's the middle of April and we had snow AGAIN! Love the "after" photos, how pretty! Have fun =) Amazing what some paint and flowers can do... Some of our landscape blocks need some MAJOR help - LOL! It all needs redone at our house... Happy Spring, Debbie

Thank you for your sweet note on my blog this evening! =) Yes, we are in the middle of a Nor'Easter and I hear we may get 5 inches of rain overnight and have horrible flooding. This is one time I am glad I don't live TOO close to the ocean! =)
