The Difference Paint Makes!

Here are some shots of before and after:

ALL of the inside had the white/green/freeze/plum, but the freeze was ripped in places and the rooms looked so dark with that colour scheme.

So we had all the inside painted with off white/deep cream.
Now the house is so light!

Before, the outside had a green roof and yellow walls.
Now it has a brownish roof (called "Jasper"), "Chocolate" awnings & posts and Creamy/Yellow ("Malacoota") walls.

That is "Dusty", my man's faithful dog.  She has not got a mean bone in her body and is wonderful.  Her only fault is: she moults!  She only has to stand there and it falls off her, even straight after brushing her or bathing her, it just sheds and is a wonder she is not bald!  She reminds me of "Pig Pen" in the "Charlie Brown" comics.  He had the filth falling off him like the hair falls off Dusty.

My man has been into the gardens, but still has a long way to go before it is up to his liking.  He spent the first couple of days, digging out trees with his bulldozer and pruning others with his chainsaw!

Well, this afternoon I am off to Fiji for a week with my daughter, SIL, and 2 grand children.  My man will NOT fly or go on water, so he will be at our new home "re-arranging" while I am gone.

Until next post
