We Painted our Cape Cod Style Home Periwinkle!

Welcome to our Cape Cod style home during Spring in the Midwest!  It’s still pretty cold here, but the sun is out today!  I thought it would be a great time to inspire you all with some paint!  We took a risk with periwinkle (at least it looks like periwinkle in person) a couple years ago, but we love it against the crisp white and chocolate brown! Some of these were taken today and you will notice lots of yard work that needs attention…if it would just stop being so windy and cold!!Rick and I have worked very hard over the last 3 1/2 years getting this house back in shape.  We still have lots to do, but we sure are proud of the improvements thus far and I love sharing it with you all not to boast, but to inspire.  XO
