Our huge album...

This is something I've wanted to get done for eons. I cut all the mat board a couple of years ago...selected and got prints of the pics 6 months ago......and finally this morning I put it all together. They are all pictures taken up at the lake, and over it hangs a sign my sister gave me with the lake name. Our old house has tiny closets and had no closets downstairs until we built this one in one end of the kit/family room. We decided to use the French doors after seeing a webfriend from Great Impressions do this in her daughter's room (thanks JanH!). We really like it better than a bank of bifold or sliding doors. And let me tell you, having a place to put coats and shoes really does make a difference in how neat you can keep your house! Not that you can tell that today...seems we have shoes all over this house right now.

What a great idea! Much better than coving up the glass with fabric. Looks terrific!

I enjoyed your blog so much. What a wonderful family you have!! I will be back to visit in the future. Sorry to haer about your sweet dog. If you have not already, you need to get a new pup. There is just nothing like a cold loving nose and a wagging tail to make you smile!

Hi, Joyce! Thanks so much for leaving me a note. So glad you found my blog & I'm happy to see yours too. I will definitely look around at all your projects to see what you've been up to. The doors look great!

I don't hang out at GI like I used to either. Blogging takes up a lot of time. Please come back & visit when you can.
