Blessed

I have always loved the word “blessed” as I feel it describes so much–actually, everything–in my life. There’s a verse about being blessed beyond measure and truly, we are. Two years ago Ben’s sister Abbie got me the most perfect … Continue reading

Double the Pleasure

Ever since I was young and got a bedroom of my own I have loved to rearrange things. To this day the bug hits usually at inopportune times when I’m just trying to clean the house. Case in point last … Continue reading

Rear Window

When we bought Lot 9 in 2013, it was the cul de sac in the front but especially the expected view from the rear that made us smile. The woman we worked with at Robert Thomas Homes spoke in colorful language about the wild flowers that would bloom–a variety of species and a whole bunch of colors blooming throughout the spring and into fall. 

Last year we decided she was full of bologna as the backyard seemed to be full of big weeds (although some did have color) and very few wild flowers. She reminded us it would take a couple of years and so we didn’t complain too much.

So what’s happened in summer number two at YellowDoorWorld? Well Mary wasn’t kidding after all. The views from the back of the house really have been lovely. A myriad of whites, yellows, purples and greens have been blooming since spring and it really is so lovely. 

So, similar to that old Hitchcock flick noted in the title of this post, while we’ve waited in suspense, the outcome from the rear window(s) is actually quite alright!  

    
 

Follow the YellowDoorWorld

Oh, YellowDoorWorld! How have I let you go so long without something fun to share. Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas 2014 have come and gone and here we are in the last month of the first quarter of 2015. Time has flown by, winter has been busy, house projects have been minimal and let’s just say, the “now what” bug is biting.

Most shopping continues to take place at Homegoods and TJMaxx. Sometimes we find things at Pier One and we love looking at Ballard Design, Home Collectors and HGTV magazine.

In the coming days, I’ll write quick posts with a few pics of rooms we’ve added a little of this or that to; and hopefully, some new updates will be shared too. There might be even be some guest blogs from pals with projects worth sharing.

Meantime, some holiday delight for reminiscing…
