My dear, beautiful friend, Kim once said "The one place in the whole wide world that you should not have to follow silly unimportant rules is in your own home."
And she's right, whether it's inside or out.
So, I listened to her (which I always try to anyway) and painted my side porches the way I wanted to.
It may not be everyone's cup of tea, but I love it :)
This is what I've been doing for the past few days while the weather has been gorgeous here and why I haven't been visiting all of you as much, until today....

And as you can see, I have a lot more to do, but it's getting there :)
Eventually, at some point, I'll paint the house the original color, which is a sort of beigey (yes it's a word!) yellow and I think it'll all come together.
But I'm loving it now :)
Off to make more visits....
