Urns and Ferns...

I thought I'd share a wee-little front porch update.  I wanted to spruce up the front of the house with some new urns, but I really wanted to get a pop of color from them as well.  After searching for a good while for a pair of ceramic urns that were just the right size/color, I found a set of plastic, colored urns at Lowe's that fit the bill quite nicely.  Andy's mom had gotten us one fern a couple of weeks ago, and Andy and I tracked down another this weekend to fill the empty urns.  And the front porch today...

They ended up being just the right size for either side of the front door.  Andy was very concerned that they not be too obtrusive (thus creating a jungle-like theme as you come in the front door--a little creepy for visitors), but he also agreed that these were just right.

This picture more accurately displays the red coloring in the urns.  It's a pretty true "Chinese red," as I like to call it.  Just right for a little splash of color!

On a completely different note, as of tonight, Andy and I have emptied our last storage unit!!!  All of our belongings are finally under one roof.  This has not been the case since last December (we started a storage unit back then to offload closets/the garage for selling the house)!  Don't even ask me how the garage looks right now...
