New Door, New Look!

Hey neighbors!

I am so excited!  Our back deck is almost completed.  It actually has several levels and a grill area.  It is wonderful!  And work has started on replacing our front porch.  I will be doing a post to show you the differences.  Next on my list of renovations are the two main doors.  One front and one in the back.  They needed replaced anyway, but now that the new deck and patio are going up They are really looking bad, especially compared to the deck and porch!




Anyway, I have been looking at some different options on doors4home.  I am really beginning to dream!  I found several that I really like.  I definitely want a window in the front door, but not too big.  I have included several here that I thought looked nice.  What do you think of the ones above?  It is an older home so I want to find something that fits in well with the present look.

For the back door I am not quite as concerned that there be glass in it.  I am thinking solid wood, but I am still trying to decide.  Would you go for something with a design or just plain?  I like the designs, but I am not sure if it would look good out back.  Maybe we should just do a plain door.



Hopefully we will be able to replace the doors within the next month or so.  We should be done with the deck and porch within the next week or so and then we can move on.  I will be sure to post some pictures once we decide.  Thanks neighbors for sharing your opinions.

I like metal doors with no glass, reason being if someone was going to try to break in it would be a lot harder for them to do so. We do have a metal door in the front but the glass is up high so if they broke it they still could not get in. Just a thought.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child
