This is my cousin Trista's house that she bought a year and a half ago. She lived with us for a while while she did her internship then graduated and decided to stay here close by us. I am so glad she was able to buy instead of renting and might I say I am very proud of her for doing it all on her own. Now when she bought this house it was in terrible shape and looked nothing like the picture below, but with the help on her parents (my wonderful and talented Aunt and Uncle) this is what it looks like now. They painted the outside and added the shutters put in a new drive and sidewalk and did a little landscaping but there was still something that it needed so a few weekends ago my Aunt and I did the window boxes and the basket by the front walkway while Trista was away in Charleston. She was surprised when she came home and loved it. For her birthday a few months ago I had done the planters on the porch and the ferns and she has done well taking care of them so I hope she will do as well with the new ones. Just thought I would share the pictures since it looks so cute. The inside is even more adorable after my Aunt got busy in there. I will get a few pics of the inside when I am over there next.
