Sit for a Spell

Sit for a Spell

Nothing massively major took place in Gloria’s porch makeover here.  But see how adding a couple of chairs and an outdoor rug made such a huge impact?  It is much more welcoming now, whereas before I would have thought twice before trick-or-treating at that door, just based on the gloomy picture.  Not that I trick-or-treat at my age.  Often.  Usually I just hide most of my kid’s candy until they forget about it, then I eat the good stuff.  What?  I’m saving them from cavities.

And here’s a good idea if you don’t feel like drilling through your brick wall to hang house numbers.  Put them on a sign!  It’s far more noticeable anyway. Simply hang it from a screw drilled into the wood trim up above like Gloria did here.  Smarty pants.  See more on her blog A Little Paint.
