Some Pictures While Out and About

I love to ride around and look at beautiful homes and yards to drool and also get some ideas. I had my camera and took a few pictures the other day I thought I'd share with you.

Love the yellow screen door with the greenery on and around it, also love the benches and dogs on either side of the walkway


Bench on the front porch with cute pillows, love the initial one in the middle


Bench in the front yard with the black and white pillows, love the polka dots


Totally love everything about this house, white with black shutters, beautiful urns and gate to welcome people


Same house, love the black screen door and painted house numbers in cursive


This would be the type of house I would build or buy if I had my choice, love everything - the front porch with the rockers and plants, urns with ferns in them, greenery growing on the fronts of the steps, gorgeous landscaping


Hope y'all have had a good week and will have a great weekend!
