Coming Soon — Open House

Thanks to all fellow bloggers for the well wishes on our upcoming Open House this weekend. We’re hoping that some nice wonderful folks will see our 100+ years old Victorian home and fall in love with it — just like we did.

The Frog & PenguINN has come a very long way in the 10 years since we bought it as these before and current photos show. We’ve enjoyed working on the house — for the most part. As anyone who has ever renovated an older home knows, it can be (quite) challenging at times.

Since returning from our Easter family visits road trip, we’ve been spending lots of hours working indoors and outdoors. Yes, the paint dried and Grenville did a wonderful job.
Once warm weather hits, as it did here last week, there’s plenty of yard work with no excuses of “too cold to be outside.”  The back lawn was mowed (yes, it IS a big yard) .
Flower beds also were cleaned up and pots that were bare in winter, now have new plantings. Grenville power washed the back patio; also repainted and stained.

Curb appeal is another thing that realtors advise can help to sell a home (along with de-cluttering and removing personal items).

AND asked St. Joseph to help too.

Just lovely! In addition to what you've done, when we sold our first house, we baked bread the morning of the open house! It worked, we got an offer the next day! Just a thought...

Set you oven at a low setting and stick a frozen pie in.It fills your house with a nice aroma and later gives you a treat to share.

It all looks great! We're in the middle of a snow-melt here. But it'll start to go fast.

You're all spruced up and ready to show! Everything looks fresh and tidy and your neighborhood looks very nice, too. Best of luck this weekend!

Sorry that I haven't visited in so long. It really focusses things when you have something like an open house...doesn't it. What a lovely house...I love it!
I do hope all goes well and that you are able to sell it. I'll be thinking of you. Joan

Lovely and lots of work, I know. Hope that buyer appears. I have also heard to bake cookies with lots of cinnamon, something about baking smells appeal to buyers...
