This is the house the day we moved in; we told people coming to visit that it was the blue-gray house
So, we had it painted. i envisioned this paint color the day I saw the house for the first time. I told our realtor, a little Southern Belle, and she said:
"You're going to paint just the porch red?"
And I said:
"And the sunroom, too!"
Then we became the house with the red porch for visitors.
And while we don't get snow often in Smallville, I love the way the house looks covered in it.
