Sue is a master seashell finder! Here we are with seashells from beloved Short Beach near Branford (above). This is in October, but wouldn't it be the best place to laze away a summer afternoon? Sue said that parking is horrific here in the summers, and the beach is only for homeowners who live nearby. We were lucky to come in the off-season.
Sue's dad and Jon's mom's dad are brothers. Can you tell??
Here my son is playing near the Yale Yacht Club which happens to be located on the same Short Beach that Jon's mom grew up playing on as a young girl in the summers.
The boys loved the beach!
We are so happy for Sue because she is getting ready to retire, and has found a home in Florida to buy. I was excited when Sue asked me for advice with how to paint the new home's exterior. Right away I copied a picture from the real estate website into my program, and got to work making up different color combinations. Here is the house they bought:
With that classic red brick and the charming arches in between each porch post, we knew we could make it look great. Here are the four options that we tried:
|grey with blue doors/shutters|
|brown with white doors/shutters|
|grey with red doors/shutters|
|yellow with black doors/shutters|
Sue and her daughter chose the grey and blue. I think that it will look fantastic! Congratulations on the house Sue!
