So, we have scallops on the outside of the house up in the pointy parts of the roof. (You would think I would know what these parts are called after all this house building time, wouldn't you? But, I don't.)
I love the cottage-y look it lends. Definite cute factor.
Wanting to carry that cute on down closer, I dreamed up window trim with scallops and my little husband made them for me...and painted them and put them up and caulked them. Yep. He's that kind of guy!
Have a look...
Hey, you can see my back door....lovely green.
He was pretty proud of himself!
Then it was time to move on to the front door trim. It needed an extra piece to tie it to the door style....see the dental (how do you spell that word for this meaning?) molding piece?
Everything else matches the window trim.
Pretty door. See the same dental molding under the glass?
And to carry the theme a little bit farther....
...scallopy trim around the garden bed. Can't plant too much yet, because we still have to get in there to do corner trim and battens.
Have not figured out how to keep grass from growing up close to things yet. I want to be able to mow close enough to take care of all the grass, but I can't get in there even with the push mower. Ideas?
West Virginia just celebrated our sesquicentennial and our community chorus dressed in period clothes to sing. I borrowed mine from a Civil War reenactor friend. It was hotter than the dickens...whatever they are...but fun!
The house at Shangri La Ti Da is coming along....slow but sure...
