The Outside

Wow, I can't believe how long it's been since my last post!! It's been such a busy summer here,
I really don't know where the time goes. I really do need to see about getting that 8th day added to my week...... ha,ha!!

Well it occurred to me that I have shared much of the inside of The Cottage with you, but not the outside, so here it is. I am always curious about what the outsides of the shops I encounter in blogland look like, I guess I'm kind of a building junkie anyway. I've been known to drive around in a new town just checking out the old buildings really not caring if I go in...just love looking at the outsides......silly hugh??
Here's a little project that I finished up not to long ago. Nice little music cabinet in dire need of some.......well....let's just call it personality. It was a little boring..... and very brown.

And the After....

Lots more personality, don't ya think???

The Ol' Red, White, and Blue

We live in the best place on earth....

Even when times are tough, and worries are many,

We Americans will always celebrate our Freedom !!

My family and friends (12 of us at last count) are headed out to a local winery this 4th of July for a wonderful evening of live music, great food , and the BEST fireworks that I have ever seen (even better than Disneyland!!)
I hope everyone has a spectacular July 4th !!!!
Stay Safe!!
