This is the house that Mark and Shalagh bought in 2000. The shutters were that colonial gray-blue color.
I fell in love with the brick sidewalk a la Martha Stewart. Mark fell in love with the river front view.
I named it Bally Eden. The source of my Eden. But I would then steal that name away for my shop.
Sooner than later I painted the shutters green. And two years ago I got around to testing out the darker color around the window. I liked it but…
Finally this past Spring, Mark hired a friend with scaffolding to do the deed.
The entire porch was repainted and my white window frames were finally painted the darker green. You can’t paint the vinyl siding.
It looks so much better. I have some Ikat fabric that I’ve decided to make flags from. I’ll get right on that.
Next up? Pictures of the interior as it looked on that fateful day in April of 2000. It’s scary.
