Saying Goodbye To The Turnaround House

As Andy and I have been getting our little farmhouse ready to sell, one of the things I’ll miss about it is the roses. Every Spring and Summer, we cut roses from our garden and display them around our home. I love the fact that they come from our property, and every time I look at them, they make me smile!

We’ve been working on the inside as well as outside the last few weeks. Andy made this cute fieldstone fence around one of our flower beds and trees in the backyard.
