Bringing my style to the outside is important to me.
So I created this post to show some easy tips on how to make your home tastefully stand out among the other homes in the neighborhood. Here is a list of some of my own photos and ideas and a few others, too.

I invite the little birdies to my window with a feeder. The hook is hung from the shutter screw so I don’t have to make new holes in my house. Adding the star to my greens makes it so I have to keep less flowers alive. A bird house is cute there, too.
This photo is of a shed but how cute for the garage windows.
