Maple Hill Journey

Over the last two years I have made many changes to my home. Once I decided to stay I new I had work to do. Everything from making it more energy efficient, redoing the garage, much needed repairs, colorful, vintage, artsy - all those things that make it mine. I had created a Vision Board back in early 2013 and have stuck with it. There are still a few things to be done (next year, a rustic Potting Shed!) but pretty much cosmetic now. 
Today I was going through some things and found this old picture when the house was purchased in 2000 - it was built in 1979 and we purchased from the original owner. 
What a transformation - it hardly looks like the same place. In a few corners you still find traces of the original red paint - but nothing else remains. Needless to say, I am very very very happy! Enjoy. Jewels


  1. I love your garden - so pretty with all the different heights and colors and shapes. I like the house and shutter colors too. And all the trees. What a pretty place to live. Good job, Jewels!

  2. You have done a great job. Your house and gardens look comfy and cozy. It looks like a soothing retreat and you did it for you. Congratulations. I hope to visit and see it for myself.

  3. what a great post julie, as my elle is closing on her first home on thursday. i will most certainly have her stop and take a photo on that day. It will be a special thing to do. Thanks for the post,

  4. It is always awesome when we make our house our home!! I love making mine the funky farmhouse I love!! Finally I believe I am too happy in the direction I ma going!! XOXO Love ya Fran.

  5. You have such a beautiful home, Jewels. It makes all that hard work and 'envisioning' worthwhile.

    Looking forward to seeing that rustic potting shed, it sounds great!
