Brandon and I have put a lot of work into our home, but the outside has been a little left out. We had spruced up our porch, but not much else.
There are no bushes, no flowers, no landscaping of any kind. The only plant life out front was a little tree sapling. We bought the house in the winter and the photo from the house listing showed the tree with leaves on it, so we waited and waited all throughout the spring and summer for it to show signs of life. Nothing. Which of course meant leaving a dead tree out front as our only form of ‘greenery’ until we chopped it down in the fall. Nice.
When Patricia van Essche of introduced herself, I was really excited about the idea of having a sketch of my home. Then I remembered what our house looks like. Luckily, a little artistic license goes a long way.
Ooh, my house looks cute! Look! Greenery!
Also, can I just tell you how much I love Patricia’s photo? Brilliant.
She also has a , and is an all around amazing and creative woman. You can her if you’re interested in commissioning an illustration of your own.
