I'm happy to report that the mulch is now down. It makes such a huge difference! I also purchased some geraniums for the front porch pots (late in the season...I know), a new front porch mat and a brass kick plate for the front door.
The thing I'm most excited about, I think, is my new front porch lanterns. I wanted something BIG, but unfortunately anything much bigger looks silly. I guess I need to purchase a bigger house before I go that route :)
All of the home improvements tired a certain westie out.
He feels compelled to oversee all work done on the house. It's nice to know that someone is supervising :)
This weekend is the White Party. Remember when I told you all about the white party last year HERE? Anyway, from what we can tell...Irene has RSVP'd "no" (PTL), and we will only have to contend with a bit of wind. Which, honestly, could be a bit of a problem. My dress is a weeeeeee bit short.
(you can't really see the detail, but it has white rosettes along the top and also across the waist. i found it in Charleston on King St.)
MK and I discussed it today, and I'm thinking it may be worn as a tunic instead, with white pants. That way I'm not on pins and needles worried about a strong gust of wind :)
I hope you all have a lovely weekend, and every is safe and sound when Irene hits.
