Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

A Work in Progress

We have been working on the outside of the house all summer. The problem is it gets so hot here that we can only work for a couple of hours in the morning or evening. The mister put up the shutters a couple weeks ago. They added so much to the character of the house. I love anything that adds to the cute factor. Putting in water lines, not so much.

Now picture a white picket fence and some window boxes. All on there way in the next few weeks.

A cute picket fence and window boxes?! I'll have to quit driving by because I'll be sick with jealousy. :) I can't wait to see your window boxes and wonder where you get them--I haven't found any I really like at all the obvious stores around here, but I think it's becoming obvious that I'm not a good shopper.
