In The Red - Just a Touch

Since Spring has arrived we've been busy sprucing up the place and making the small repairs that we can . This home is a never ending project or should we say journey. The back steps definitely needed a little tlc. Finally got my hands on the red paint that is always out of stock.


We put up new Mariner porch lights for both the front and back porch. The steps are painted Phoenix Fossil and the doors are Colonial Red. Blocking the doggy door was a must so the wildlife wouldn't use it as well . Imagine raccoons, squirrels, rabbits, rats and such just chilling in there. They do eat the dog food out the bowls already.

 We have been integrating more red into the decor within and without in 2021. Seems to be the new power punch of color, now if we could just bring more luck with it!

Literally wore out the welcome mat. A lil red revival to go with the Rosemary & Lavender.

  Hard to believe in two weeks it will be summer vacation for the kids. Time to make a summery vibe wreath to put on the door, even though I'm quite proud of my Eastery Hydrangeas wreath crafted on a whim for the season.

Hoping to stay tuned and in touch at Celestial Pines Sanctuary with a Gypsy Spirit Rising.


  1. Oh, I love red doors! It looks very nice, Holly. I gave my brother some suggestions with painting the exterior of my home. One was a white house with a red door, but white gets dirty fast in the mountains, so I think he'll go with a grey/blue with white trim.....we'll see. Enjoy your red door, Holly. I hear ya on the never ending chores living in the wilderness. That is basically what my recent post is about. ; ) Your steps look nice also.


  2. Everything is looking so beautiful!!! I love it all! Big Hugs!

  3. Red is a good colour, so warm and welcoming.

    All the best Jan

  4. That pop of color looks stunning.
