Boom Da Da Boom

The husband has completed re-routing the eavestroughing at the front door. Here it is as of yesterday:



Just for fun, let's compare that to the front door which greeted us when we returned from vacation in late May, shall we?

(The eavestroughing on the right ran down the trunk of that tree, the left didn't function well at all.)

I'd still like a new light fixture--and figure out a more satisfactory solution for the abysmal house numbers. Any thoughts?

Wow, that looks great! This is probably a dumb idea, but I wondered if the house numbers could go on that fan shape in the edging around the door (just above where they are now), or if that would spoil the fan shape. Second thought, it would likely spoil the fan shape.

Maybe long and vertical along the side opposite the mailbox? The numbers on top of each other. Larger.

I have no idea what I'm talking about. As one of the characters in one of my read-at-night books is fond of saying, I'm just talking to hear my head roar.

No, no, you are, as usual, brilliant in your ramblings. I've been looking at house numbers of Google--and found the very thing. I'm going to put it into a post in a bit.

Hmm, I agree, there is potential to be seen in the house numbers. Also, this is such an amazing change, it looks great. Can't wait to see what you found on Google!
