I Won a Sketch of my Home by Amy of Maison Decor

A few months ago I won a free sketch from Amy of Maison's Decor.  I'm always admiring everything about Amy's house and blog.  In addition to be an amazing interior designer she does lovely sketches of her home and other people's homes.

Well I entered her contest and said that this is the first home that my daughter knew and it would be wonderful if she had a picture of the house for when she's older. Four people, plus myself won and I'm so excited. Life got in the way and I was having computer issues so it took this long to get the photos to Amy.  I finally send 4 pictures to her.  I was told we could create a bit of fantasy with the pictures.  We bought our home when I was 6 months pregnant and it had no sprinklers in the front or back.  Natalie's Dad and our neighbor Roy, who was 81 at the time, dug trenches and created a sprinkler system.  I helped with the landscaping and even Natalie tried to help too.  I told her I wanted roses added into the trellis and the porch chair to look like wood instead of plastic.  I also gave her some ideas of what my landscape consists of.  I know this is something that Natalie and I will treasure forever.

Here are the photos I sent her:

Congrats on the winning...that's awesome. Thanks for leaving such a sweet comment on my waterbottle, but what is a pinterest page? Sounds interesting.
