awnings!

Awnings! I personally believe every cottage should adorn the windows with one or two. Here at the blue cottage we have 7 windows adorned with the charm of them. However, let me warn you... if you have pecan trees or crape myrtle trees think again! With the tree sap you are forever scrubbing them. Yesterday afternoon, I began the task, ((wear gloves)) scrubbing, bleaching, hosing down, scrubbing, bleaching, hosing down, drying, bleached again..... yep 2 gallons of bleach later - they are clean once again! Charming right?
Happy Week-end!!

Ok, first of all let's talk about that aorable trailer again! I love it! It is my goal now to get one someday. I have been nosing around on ebay, but not too many and not quite as big as yours.
Now to the awinings. I love them, too. My cape house had 3 cheap ones on it and they lasted about 3 years, wind blew the metal and bent it and the awnings faded big time. Mr. Tennis said, let's do it right this time, so I had the awning people over measuring and they are are in the process of being custom made. Ican't wait. Not only are they a saver in the summer for the AC, they are just charming to boot! Pics later...

I love awnings and buy everyone that I can. Even my newer home has an older awning on the side. Love them.
