This was taken from one side of the backyard, with the "fort" that the previous owner left behind showing a bit on the left. He took the playhouse with him, and left the frame. I'm thinking I might turn it into a makeshift sort of pergola. My garage is an eyes0re...need to paint it at some point. My shed got delivered last week...I love it there. I can't wait to garden around it.
I put my hammock under the frame...seemed like a logical spot for it. There is dappled sun all morning here, and thoughout the day. It's a great spot to relax.

Front of the house from the corner of my property.

We hung the flag on Memorial Day. I think I'll just leave it up...I like the way it looks! This picture shows how far out the land goes...those chairs under the tree are about 15 ft from the edge of the field, which is the end of my property line. All in all, I have an acre, and it's the perfect size for me! :)

I love your blog design and your new house! I've never been to upstate NY but I'd love to travel there one day.

Do you mind if I put your blog link on my blog? :)

Thanks for sharing,

Hi, Sharon, I think your new little house is adorable & you've already done a lot to it already. Love the painted stairs and the refinished floors. That built-in in the kitchen is great too, I see lots of potential around there. Great looking property too.

I just LOVE those tracklights in your kitchen. I am going to get one of those for my kitchen too one of these days (got to get rid of the old fluorescent!). Where did you find that one? I've seen some cool looking ones at Lowes too, yours is really pretty.

Sharon, I know I've said it a gazillion times, but your new house ROCKS! Seriously, it just oozes charm and hospitality, and could the setting being any more tranquil? I'd kill for an acre!
