Don't They Look Happier?

Every day when I drive over to the new house to work, I bring something over from the old house. It is mostly the things we have outside. Like outdoor furniture, pots, etc. Today, Mr. Comforts of Home came with me and he was able to bring our heavy cement lion urn planters.

Here they are at our old house.....


And here they are at our new house. (The door is getting painted red this week!!).

Don't they just look happier at our new house?

Welcome Home,
Penny

  21. Hi Penny
    Putting the planters at the entrance of your new home help it say "welcome" and when you get the door painted red...wow! It's going to be fabulous. Our house needs painting ourside and we plan to do it this fall. Right now the doors are white. I've been considerering red, but I don't know if it will go with the red brick. Still thinking about it.
    Hugs, Rhondi

  22. Very pretty and I so want a red door. My current house is brick and I don't think a red door would work. Maybe one day...

  23. Hi Penny,
    Very pretty in deed, but I think they looked great at your old house too. The red on your front door is going to really look great!. I have a red door and I love it, I know you love red too. I can't wait to see it painted. The transom is really pretty above your door we have transom windows on every window in our home and it "really" brings the light in.
    Enjoy your day and keep creating,
    Elizabeth

  24. When I moved semi-locally I brought the drawers from my old kitchen to the new one, transfered the contents and returned the drawers back to the old kitchen. No packing needed!
    The door will look great red, and yes the planters look very happy.

  25. Hello Penny, I am home and happy to be here. My trip was wonderful but I sure missed my blogging friends. Thank you for your visits while I was AWOL. LOL.

    I just scrolled down and your progress on your new home is exciting to see. Your planters look perfect by your beautiful door. The color red will really make a difference. I have always loved side windows. I read your dated scheduled and it took my breath away. How utterly exhausting Penny. I hope it all happens smoothly and that goes for your many projects as well. Whew!!!

    Hugs xoxo, Jeanne
