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.

One more backyard project crossed off the list.


Aubrey said...

Woo-hoo for crossing something off the list! It looks great. Think they'll eversell fencing with the optional electic wiring across the top? I need that for Mr D. He's making me so nutty lately.

You guys are going great guns at your house.
It really is the best feeling to CROSS something off of a list huh.

Does Aubrey have a 2 yr old? If so, remind her they would be able to get through the electric wiring on top somehow LOL
Enjoy your day.

That looks so nice, you'll love it! Isn't it so nice to live where you don't have to worry about some one stray painting it?! Enjoy :D

Don't ya just love marking something off of your list, I know it feels like a relief. Looks good!

Donna said...

Wow, it looks great! Happy you can cross another thing off your list!

And you don't even have to paint it every couple of years! I love the white, by the way. Not taupe. But then we've always been of the same mind...or at least I like to tell people that. "Mimi and me are alike." Makes me look good.

Brenda @Just a Bed of Roses said...

Yeah Mimi and the Mister...nice fence, big accomplishment.

Fence is kind of a word at our house I say alot...and it goes in someones right ear and out the left really fast with no response.

They aren't getting cheaper are they? well, not since I priced them out 10 years ago.

I must do taupe cause its better with my antique style house...so You and Lisa better not suprise me in the morning by sneaking over and spray painting it white!

What fence am I even talking about...its all talk at my house.
so congratulations YOU GOT A FENCE! Thats big Mimi, its big.

It is lovely. We had this kind of fence at our old house. It works great.
