Would you ever paint your house a bold color, like this? Would you?I've been smitten with this house in Midway, for well over a year now.
I think it's adorable.
It certainly has character.
For my birthday, this past week, my amazing family and I went to Midway, and Heber City.
There is a fun store in Midway that I like to shop at. It's called " All that Stuff in the Barn".
It was a treat to drive up Provo Canyon, and past Deer Creek Reservoir to Midway.
lover of all things old, Midway has some great old houses~
Loved this one too..... painted a kind-of rusty, barn red color.
How cute are those mossy green Adirondack chairs on the front porch?!
Would you ever paint your house this color?
How bout this color?
A brighter red, with white trim?
Can you see at the bottom of the picture, a small wooden water wheel?
This little water wheel was just spinning around and around; just moving the water along in the irrigation ditch, in front of this house.
Who thinks of making something so cute?
Heber Creeper line.
So exciting to see this old gal get restored, and one day, be back in service.
My kids used to play on this old engine. It was permanently parked in the old GRA park in Provo.
All the kids used to climb on this old engine, and play.
Back in the early, early 1950's, when this engine was in use, my Dad was a 'Fireman' on this engine.
Meaning.... he shoveled coal into the fire, for the steam engine. I still have his old fireman's hat.
Growing up in Provo, and now living so far away, I miss seeing these mountains.
It was a wonderful trip, and a real treat.
I still LOVE that green house, and have not gotten tired of seeing it.
If we still live in this house next Spring/ Summer, I am seriously considering painting our house green.
Would you be brave enough to paint your house a bold color??
Attitude of gratitude:
~I'm so grateful for my family. My husband and my children are so incredibly good to me!
~I'm grateful that little things still mean the most to me. May I never get so big for my britches, that I take for granted the little every day blessings, and tender mercies from my Heavenly Father.
~I'm grateful that Hot Chocolate season is here. Nothing warms me up like a mug of cinnamon laced Hot chocolate.
