Feathers and Fingerprints House Tour!

Welcome to my house tour!  I love seeing where other bloggers live and all of the creative things they've done.  My husband and I bought our house about five years ago.  Since then we have been busy fixing it up and making it our own.  I dug out all of the old pictures from the first year we lived here and it amazes me how much it has changed!

This is probably one of the first pics I took of the house.  Not the best quality, I know.

Our first spring in the house we did some minor landscaping.  To the right of the porch was grass.  We dug out the grass, added the rock border, and planted a tree.  That tree didn't survive and has been replaced with another tree.  We planted a row of day lilies all the way across the front.  They have turned out to be the perfect flowers for my brown thumb.  On the left of the porch was railroad ties.  We replaced them with rock and new mulch.  Ahhhh.  I love spring.  This picture is from a few years ago.

It didn't take long before we had to replace the rotting porch posts.  They were literally crumbling.

I'm very happy with the end result!

Or, head out back and see the making of the swing set!


  1. Love these house tour posts! But most of all, I love the video :) Your family has come a long way over the last few years!!!

    Keep up the great work! It's so fun to make a house your own. We've learned the hard way ... do it early so you can enjoy your home just how you want it ... don't wait until you're about to sell it!!!

  2. Amanda, I hope you'll share your new home journey on here! I can't wait to see more pictures!
