As BD and I started packing up our old house to move, we started talking about taking something with us as a memento of our first house. We have loved this little house and made lots of great memories in it; we knew we couldn't move on without taking a piece of it with us.
I found this Etsy shop and knew that a custom house portrait is exactly what we wanted.
I sent the artist a couple of photos of our house, like this one:
And in a few weeks, we received this 8x10 watercolor image:
We could not be more pleased! The artist did a phenomenal job. She captured all the little details about the house that made it ours -- right down to the garden flag I had in the flowerbed.
I can't wait to have this framed and hung in a place of honor in our new house.
LA and BD have been Living, Loving, and Laughing in North Carolina since they emerged from the Louisiana bayous a little over 13 years ago. Which, not coincidentally, is the same amount of time they've been hitched. They are in their mid-30's and are the proud parents of MC (6/2012) and GL (8/2016). Email them at ncleeann (at) gmail (dot) com.
Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love. They depart to teach us about loss. A new dog never replaces an old dog; it merely expands the heart. If you have loved many dogs your heart is very big. ~Unknown

"For me a house or an apartment becomes a home when you add one set of four legs, a happy tail, and that indescribable measure of love that we call a dog." ~Roger Caras
