It's all about the "S's"...

...the "STONE" that is...which is SOUTHERN Ledge design in the color of SULPHUR SPRINGS...
 ...and the cypress green "SIDING"...
 ...the board and batten "green" (yes, I changed my mind) "SHUTTERS"...
 ...and some textured "SHAKES"...
 ...all put together looks a lil' something...

...like this!!!
We are finally getting there my friends!  It has been a VERY rainy way of it lately - but I will not complain.  We feel tremendously blessed considering the flooding and other weather devastation which has affected so many in our country.  Our hearts are with all of those people who have been so tragically affected.

We still have to get the stone grouted and the porch and railings on, gutters and the exterior lights - but we'll get there.  I'm so excited about my outside lights - they are from Barn Light Electric - and I. LOVE. THEM!!!  They are simple but they fit our farmhouse feel jus' right I think.  I'll show them to you soon.

As you all can see - I still haven't picked a color for my front door but when I do - if it matches one of your suggestions - I'll send you  - yes - another "S" - a big SURPRISE.  I just haven't decided yet - I have to STUDY it a bit longer.

Hope you all enjoyed the pictures - and pretty soon - y'all can help me pick out the fun stuff - the interior paint, the lights, the flooring - SOUNDS like fun to me!

Have a happy and blessed weekend!
Cathy

Hey Cathy! Yes, it's me...Angie, The Happy Homebody who seems to have abandoned my blog. I am doing fine and don't know why I haven't been blogging. Still decorating as always...in fact I just got done repainting my dining room this afternoon. Just too lazy to take pictures and post about stuff guess. I'm hoping to start back soon, but I am not promising anything. OK, now on to your new house - GORGEOUS and soooooo perfect for you! I am so dang excited to see it all come together and how you are going to decorate it. Love the choices you made on all the exterior stuff. We think alike, girl. Thanks so much for caring and checking up on me. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Oh Wow Cathy, It's lookin incredible! I bet you go with a Charcoal Gray or Forest Green door, but whatever color you choose, it'll be great. Can't wait to see the inside!

hey question I was searching for shutters as I have the same green siding and I ran across your blog - and saw yours - Ilove them - I am still debating on the white board n batten style - but do you know what brand yours are - Love the green did you paint them yourself or special order?? Please let me know all I find is hunter green not the pretty olive tone you have. Thanks so much you have a beautiful home
Thank Bo

Hey Cathy I was searching for shutters and ran across your blog- I have the same green siding and am trying to decide between white or green board n batten shutters- I love the green shutters on your house I was wondering if you painted them yourself or you ordered them - if so do you know who - I have searched for that green and I can't find them they are great.. You have a beautiful home and thanks .

Bo - this message is for you - I hope you see it. I ordered my shutters from a local building supply company called Commonwealth Building Products in Campbellsville, KY. You can search them on-line and get their number. I'm so sorry - I do not recall their color - but they could tell you. I can't believe I've already forgotten that! It is a stock color they have and we love them too! Good luck - hope this helps.
