~exterior house & garden tour~

I posted about this house on Instagram, and was planning to do a house tour.
But looking at my photos, I took so many that I am going to break it up into 2 posts.
So today we will start with the exterior and the beautiful gardens.

This house is just down the street from where I grew up, and where my parents still live.
It belonged to an artist friend of our families.
Both my kids took art classes here in her studio.

Then they moved to California and other friends of mine bought it.
She also is a talented painter and artist and fell quickly in love with the home and studio.
They took a while putting their own stamp on it, and I cannot wait to show you the inside tomorrow, so be sure to come back!

The houses exterior color is called Sea Serpent by Sherwin Williams.
It's beautiful contrasting with the white.
And look at that massive green lawn.
They also purchased the empty horse lot next door and are thinking about getting them.

There is this gorgeous pergola over the walkway leading up to the front door, completely covered in vines.

The piece of property is just beautiful and has so many mature trees and gorgeous shrubs and flowers.

Even a water garden outside the entry.

This is the path that leads back to the  Picket Fence Art Studio.

Ready to go see the massive backyard?

The backyard is a families dream.
It has a giant lawn for kicking the soccer ball around or practicing lacrosse.
There is a fire pit, outdoor kitchen, another water feature, several seating areas, a hot tub, and gorgeous rockeries.

Outdoor furniture can be found here.
Striped pillows from here on sale too!
Yes, I will be buying about 10!

 I seriously did not want to leave.
I am glad I didn't bring my kids with me when I took these pictures because they would still be there.
Come back tomorrow to see the inside of this gorgeous home!

~honey I blew up the kids~

 After enlarging this picture for our dining room, I was hooked and wanted more.
So I went back through Mpix and had these 2 photos enlarged of our kids.
Once I got them, I shipped them back out to Framebridge and had them framed in their Mercer Slim frames.
They are big measuring about 27x35 each, so they really make a statement.

If you aren't familiar with Framebridge, let me tell you how easy it is to order.

First you select your photo from your computer and upload it like this, and pick a size.

Next you can choose from selecting your own frame or working for free with a designer to choose one.

Next, choose your frame and opt for a mat, or no mat.

Add it to your cart and checkout.
You will be shipped a tube and shipping label which you simply add your photo to and drop off at the Post Office or Fed Ex.
Then in a couple weeks it arrives back to you all professionally framed and ready to hang, and it's really inexpensive! I have found it a lot cheaper than going to my local framers.

All the hardware is included which makes it super simple to hang them.
If you would like to try out Framebridge and save 15% off please use the code


at checkout.

I always say this, but I really need more walls in my house!
And just for fun, here's a few more pictures of our master bedroom with sources below if you are interested.
