The never ending Winter....

It's snowing again. I'm at home sick -- really sick! Too sick to make art or do my report cards. I can't even concentrate enough to read a book. So I'm flipping through decorating magazines -- I've already decorated my new house!! (on paper) I'm sure it will change many times over the next few months.....
Here I am last weekend -- see the SOLD sign -- that's my new house!I'm thinking about painting all of that iron railing stuff in off white. Shabby Chic like.... Note that there is no light at the front of the house. I have to add one at considerable expense. And one at the side door. And one at the back of the house. The flag flying there is a faded flag of the Azores Islands, part of the republic of Portugal. The neighbourhood is predominately Portuguese (mostly from the Azores). So I'll be practicing my Portuguese here!
Adeus!

Oh yes, off white railing will be nice!
It looks like the house to the left of yours has already been updated.
I am so excited for you!
