New Door, Blue Door

ByeBye Sweet Home

I don’t know how some bloggers do it – pack up and move to a new home without skipping a blogging beat. Not me. Managed to put up 5 posts during the month we found out we were moving (May), 3 posts during the month we put our old house on the market and bought our new one (June), and NO posts during the months we cleaned and caulked and trimmed and tossed and unpacked and updated and and and (July, August, and September). Now it’s already October!

But I’ve missed this place. And Heidi—madebyk’s biggest fan and most avid reader!— has too. And I’ve got lots to share, stuff from before the move, and during, and after. High time to jump back in.

Let’s start with my door. This was the new door. Or rather, the old, rust-colored door on my new-to-me house. Framed by the faded brown storm door that was hanging too crooked to actually latch. Yuck!

And while I thought we’d paint it white, to match the white framing on the new windows…



…it wanted to be blue. Perhaps to match the amazing blue skies we’ve had every day for the past two weeks. Oh, Indian Summer, please stay!
