Remember back in March or April when our minds were all aflutter with thoughts of the wonderful home projects we wanted to accomplish this summer? Maybe we were thinking of adding some lovely decorative vinyl shutters to give our façade a little pick me up. Or possibly we were going to finally rip out those old cracked basement windows and replace them with glass blocks. There may have been a little mention of once-and-for-all removing that decaying wood heap we try to pass off as a railing system, adding an adequate gable vent to allow proper airflow (thereby reducing cooling costs), or finally wrapping those less-than-attractive post with a pvc column wraps?
Did you get all of that stuff done? Did you get any of that stuff done? Yeah, I didn’t either. But it’s not too late! We still have 1 whole official month left for summer 2009. So what are you waiting for? There’s no time like right now to commit to getting at least one thing off of your “to-do” list. For me, it’s going to be shutters. What’s it going to be for you?

What is it that makes a house a home? And more importantly, what is it that makes it your home? Maybe it is the little touches that personalize the look; the things that make a definitive statement in setting your home apart from all the rest. Sometimes this entails a new color in paint or siding or possibly a little gardening and landscaping for a unique touch. Or maybe it could be something as simple and inexpensive as a custom address plaque.
Traditionally address plaques have been wall mounted and placed to the immediate right of the front entry door. However, there are no longer any true rules that you must abide by; after all the idea is to personalize your home. Plaques can be lawn mounted when ordered with the optional yard stakes. I have even seen one embedded into the corner of the concrete slab patio facing upwards towards the sky, a truly unique application with beautiful affects.
With a wide variety of styles and colors one can easily find a combination to suit your individual desire. There are plaques embossed with flowers such as roses or morning glories. There are classic designs such as eagles and fleur de leis patterns. Nautical themes, golf themes, beach themes, sporting animals and occasion specific plaques are all available to help make your entryway easily identifiable as well as unique. Personalized markers are available to honor beloved pets. Fifteen color combinations are also offered for most styles!
