~Pictures of the Outside of My Home~

Hello blogging friends!
Yes, it's finally Indian summer here in Western Pa and it's about time...so far no snow for us:)

I've been waiting for the sun to come out so that I could take pictures of the outside of my home. No cornstalks or hay bales this year, Stush's truck was broke down so couldn't haul any home from the farm he gets them from and I told him never mind... I'll survive without them this year! So I did the best that I could and I'm happy!
This is our home an 80's long ranch, I would have did some things different if I had built it with him but that wasn't meant to be so I'm thankful for how it is now! With my camera I couldn't get a close up of the whole place there are two bedrooms to the right that I couldn't fit in. Stush put window boxes up for me a couple springs ago:)
This is a closer look at one...the orange looks great against the brown brick and don't pay attention to me there with my bathrobe on, good thing we don't have close neighbors I'm sure they would think I was crazy unless she was a prim lover too:)

For the newbies on my blog...Stush built this for me to have them put the newspapers instead of the green plastic that was there. The stars are really getting rusty aren't they?

I found this nice sized rusty tin pumpkin at GW for maybe .59 and hung it by the garage door.

Yes, summer is officially over, the boat is out of the dock, so sad especially after such a nasty summer, we didn't get much use of it this year hopefully next summer will be better! This is also a picture of the beginning of the driveway...

and this is the very beginning of the road to get to the driveway:) We are up in the wooded area and own two acres of it...I love it here, it's beautiful in any season!

I hope everyone is having wonderful fall weather today, I work 2 to 7:30 but that's okay I enjoy it!
Sunday Michele and I are going to a craft show at the Washington County Fair Grounds...Michele said the first day it was so crowded you couldn't move so hopefully it will have thinned out by this Sunday:) I'll be sure to show you my prim finds!


  1. Hi Rondell!....I enjoyed seeing pics of your home, it's lovely!....I would LOVE to own a two acre wooded lot, that's actually our dream we are working towards....I can't stand living in this subdivision because the houses are only twenty feet apart, UGH!

    I especially like the display you have at the beginning of your driveway with the bittersweet sign, it's very cute!

    Have a great day at work!


  2. It looks just wonderful! I guess racking leaves can be a little time consuming. We have enough on just our one acre! But doesn't it just look magnificent in the fall!

  3. Everything looks great, Rondell! I also want to thank you for your words of encouragement during my rought time. I am feeling some better and hope to be back to my old self soon.
    Have a great week!

  29. Hi Rondell,

    Love the brick exterior of your home. What a nice guy Stush is to already have a nice big home for you to move into when you got married. Love the fall decor too! So warm and inviting.

    Does the boat go into storage or get moved for the winter?
