All Hands On Deck (or toes)

 This is a picture of our Little Cottage.
We are between the two big trees.
I took this picture from across the street 
so you could get a good perspective.

We are getting ready for visitors from Boise, 
(which means 40 little toes and 20 big toes).
Because our Little Cottage is so small, 
we needed to come up with more room.
The deck was a perfect place to expand for the Summer.

Except, the wood was full of splinters!
 Tom and I got busy and applied this heavy duty paint on top.

It turned out beautiful.
Bring on the big & little toes!


  1. It's so exciting to have everyone come. I hope you have a great time together. The deck looks good!

  2. Hi Christine.
    I can't wait to see pics of the grandkids and the fun you all will have.


  3. This cracked me up, Christine. Only because I KNOW first hand how many projects have been inspired by the little toes coming to visit!! AND, your deck looks wonderful!! I know you can't wait!! Today Little Man turns four. We had a birthday Skype... but, I sure do miss being with them. ENJOY, enjoy, enjoy! I know you will! blessings ~ tanna

  4. Just finished a 2 week visit of my own. We do love our visits, don't we!

  5. Oh, Christine...your little cottage is charming. Such a sweet blessing ... looking forward to your family pulling into your drive and enjoying those precious moments with those you love so dearly! Blessings ♥ Teri

  6. Sounds like a grand ole time to be had be all..

    Here's to hoping that it is!

  7. Christine,
    Your cottage is so beautiful! We have been working on the landscaping where my inlaws live and are in process of adding a fence (to keep the neighbor's kids out of the yard). I pray you have a wonderful visit with Kimmy and her family!

  8. It looks wonderful. What kind of paint did you use? (If you don't mind emailling at, I really would like to know, not just being chatty.)

    I know you are looking forward to filling the Little House with toes!

  9. Enjoy your visit with all of the little and big feet that will be leaving their footprints on your newly painted deck and hearts! :)

  10. What a fun and creative way to share your upcoming company! Your porch is so cute, that everyone would love to visit on it. Hope you all have a most special time together!

  11. It looks wonderful...and so inviting, and ready for wonderful memories to be made by all those toes! Enjoy!

  12. Home comings . . .
    I look forward to photos of this special visit. Having just spent 6 days with our kids in 1056 square feet of house I empathize with how "tight" it will be. Thanks goodness for decks and porches.
