Happy Mothers Day

It's hard to explain........... she was a mom who never missed one of my track
meets, basketball or soccer games.......who beamed with pride talking about
us kids............when my brother wanted a special guitar, she drove to Detroit to  buy it.......she always freaked out when one of us got hurt..........she loved and took great care of the three homes that her and dad built from 1950 to  1968. It's different now and it's my turn to take care of her.
She is in a memory care unit. the dogs and I see her almost everyday. I thank God that she still remembers me...........she doesn't remember their names, but, always asks "where are the dogs"
Happy Mothers Day Mom.

To My Friend Nick, the attached pergola is done and almost painted. The stacked stone and built out
columns will be done in the next week or so. Thanks for helping with my vision. We are loving it!!
The next step is the fabulous landscape plan that you  created for us.

It changes every month and we are starting to see the same  vendors,  come back........OH, did I say that you can set up for FREE............................

want and leave when you are ready! It can be viewed quite well from the street so it brings in lots of new faces to buy good things that are 4-SALE.............

This Old House!

Color not only  totally changes the interior of a home, but, also the outside!
We tore out our sidewalk several years ago to redesign a curvy path lined with brick paver and walking stones. Loved it then and love it even more now with the new dark gold color and swamp green trim!
