As most of you know
that have been following me
for a while we have moved
MANY (is it 15?) times in
the years we have been married.
I have REDONE/REHABBED
most of those homes.
My favorite house -
besides the one we are in now-
was the house in the historical section
of Astor Park in Green Bay, WI.
I LOVED this house.
I thought we would be there forever.
Sadly, it was not to be-
a neighbor walked across the street
one day and made my husband an
offer he could not refuse.
Thirty days later we moved out.
(Now, remember, back then I
was not blogging. I took
pictures only to have for our files)
When we moved...the
front looked like this.
There is a porch swing on the left
where we spent every morning
Here is what it looked like when we
When we bought it
the ceiling of the porch
was painted dark navy blue
and there was a cranberry front door.
The first thing I did outside was paint
the ceiling white.
It made the inside much brighter.
The porch floor was painted one of the
colors off the historical colors list.
Inside there was a vestibule and
a foyer behind it.
The vestibule was missing its door
and the built in bench had been removed.
How I wish I had taken better pictures.
The front sidelights had already
been replaced at this point.
We replaced the bench,
the missing glass between foyer
We also replaced the front door which
was not original to the house and
replaced the inner door with the one
that had been moved from its place
and used as the front door.
Oh----this is the home I miss the most!
Later this week
I will give you a peek at the side/back yard.
You won't believe your eyes.
-Bet you can't believe this either-
You know why?
Because it was on the INTERNET...
and, as we all know, everything
we see on the internet is true!
Have a great day!
