Horizontal Fence REVEAL

Hello friends!

First of all I need to apologize to you for being M.I.A. for the last 2 weeks!
Life happens. And in my case, it was snow balling like an avalanche! ;-)

Aside from Sophia's upcoming birthday (preparations which some of you have seen on IG), we had baby-sitting issues to deal with, since my mother had to go home urgently for my sick grandmother. And then my in-laws arrived, and my other son joined band, and so on and so forth.

And so even if I did have lots of projects done that I wanted to share with you, I just couldn't yet.
Did I mention I also did a talk on vaccines at a recent Immunization summit here? 

Yeah - life and work, all playing up together to make me put my blogging and reading aside!
But I'm back and I can't wait to see what you guys have been up to - I want to get inspired (design-wise) again!

Anyway, without further adieu, here is our new fence!


We were able to add a huge amount of play and running space for the kids with this new fence and we're absolutely in love with it!

Even our neighbors have complimented on how great the new fence looks!


Here it is from the inside...

Huge new space

The old fence was only up until the cemented portion of our yard...
Remember this?

Finally covered up our unsightly pond here

We have been enjoying this space a lot, since the weather right now is perfect for it.

Sophia loves playing here and we don't worry about her falling down at all!

Perfect spot for a hammock in the future right?

I don't know why we had to wait so long?!
 I have to give full credit to my hubs for this. Because although he did hire some workers to build the fence and fix the yard, he was the 'architect' behind this all. The workers did not have any experience building this kind of fence, and will the help of my husband's great research, he was able to give the right instructions and plans! I am just so amazed by him!

Oh, and remember this too?

Another nice spot now in our back yard

 Now that the yard extension is done, we are planning to have Sophia's birthday party here!
And so if your wondering about  the flamingos all around, those are actually in preparation for her 

I will share more on our next post dears!

Have a Wonderful Week!

  6. The fence is beautiful- you chose well! Looking at the exterior of your home is a treat. Beauty all around. I hope all the babysitting details work out and that your Grandmother recovers successfully. I bet you are excited about all these improvements you've made this year!

  7. The fence looks great, Vel. I think your vision has come to life in a most beautiful and functional way. Enjoy the space...and a pink flamingo first birthday party? How fun!!

  8. The fence looks amazing! I don't know if I've ever referred to a fence as beautiful, but yours definitely is!

  9. Your fence looks beautiful! It's going to be a fun birthday party! Cannot believe Sophia is one already!

  10. What a fabulous and perfect style fence to go with your beautiful home sweet Vel! You remind me when we were young and did that too for the girls to play and wow, now we have grandgirls and one on the way!

  15. The fencing is beautiful and really blends well with your gorgeous home, Vel! I'm just curious as to what kind of pool security you have now that Sophia is toddling around? I think our state tries the hardest & fails the most miserably regarding children and pools. And it definitely looks likes there is plenty of space for a swing set or jungle gym! Can't wait to see more about Sophia's Flamingo Party!

  18. Love it, Vel! The entire yard is gorgeous and makes me want to talk my husband into putting in a pool!
