The Sea, Poppies and A Front Door

06 Jun

We love the sea in all its moods but the bitter wind today made our visit very brief.

I tried to take photos of the poppies in the dunes but they wouldn’t keep still in the wild winds so here is a brief video for you.

Our front door looks magnificent, beautifully painted and with its new brass door furniture fitted.

    The front door is gorgeous. I can only imagine it set against the sage-colored walls. It is so satisfying to make these home improvements! xoxoxo

      It’s looking good. The scaffolding came down today and it really looks terrific. We are very pleased. xx

    Love that smart front door! And yes – the wind has been bitterly cold. It’s calm here right now but forecast to blow up again very soon. Next week looks better!

      We are very pleased with the painting. The house is now a pale sage with these dark doors and we love it! Should you ever need painters, ColourGirlz are brilliant! They prepare extremely well, paint carefully and clear up immaculately each evening. They are also lovely to have around! I’m missing them! 🙂

        I was actually thinking just that. Our house was booked for the exterior to be painted in autumn 2019 but one thing and another kept delaying it and now…! I’ll chat to B about getting a quote from your ladies, assuming they will travel to us. I suspect it may be too far but nothing ventured!

            We are east Cornwall – close to Polperro. Probably a good hour’s drive for them.

    Your front door looks VERY posh… and videoing the poppies was certainly thinkg outside the box 🙂
