Little pink houses for you and me!


pink house, originally uploaded by annieoakleaves.

Ive been kind of discouraged lately with all that is going on with our house. We still havent heard if we are going ot have to replace all of the floors in the house yet or not. Im not sure why I was surprised that we have lead and asbestos but I was.Our house basically hasnt been touched since the 50s which is why I love it but it is also why its a big pain in my patoootie.Anyway Ive kind of let it get me down and Ive been a slacker of a swapper and a daughter lately.I apologize.I was outside today and seen the daffodils are in bloom,I have to say the weather here couldnt be anymore perfect and Im terribly lucky on that count.Anyway this photos isnt my house but it is what I keep in my head while Im doing my yard.Only my house is going to be white with pink and aqua trim,next summer is the goal.I plan on doing the picket fence in the next month if the bathroom problems get solved. I really like how there are flowers in front of the fence too.Ive been looking for a nice archway (trellis?) with a gate and still havent found one yet,although I keep seeing them in other peoples yards(the blue house has one!) Dont you just love the pink topiaries?topiarys?lol i dunno but I do love them to death.I was told that they are stepping out of the 50s look and going to more of an english garden look but
I dont reallly care I just know I want them!Everytime I work in my yard which is ALOT lately I think about when my future grandkids come to visit and how great it would be for them to come to a mother goose type cottage.Surely my grandkids will be more into mother goose than Xbox......................LOL Hope everyone is well,that you for all of the nice comments and good thoughts about our bathrooms. xoxo

What a great house. We all need a little inspiration for our gardens ( & our houses)!!
