Testing Paint colors

Tested my colors on the "Little House" today. I love the red but I think it will be relegated to the doors. One shade darker blue on the sashes instead. Will pick that up tomorrow. I can already visualize the red white and blue bunting out for the 4th of July and the white lights at Christmas.

Rusty Spigots

This spring we noticed this nasty brown spot at the rear spigot that had been shut off for years. After finding the shut off valve the spigot became Niagra Falls, from behind the fixture. Bottom line, the shutoff valve rotted, the faucet rotted and consequently the wood is now rotted. Joy!
