Patra's Other Place

I started out with Patra's Place, primarily dedicated to my linen collection and stitching projects. But I kept getting side-tracked, so I decided to create Patra's Other Place for anything not related to embroidery topics. So you now have a choice. If you are interested in me, read this. If you only want to see my linen and stitching, visit Patra's (original) Place! (Please note that by clicking on any of the photos, they will be enlarged to fill your computer screen.)

Our house, before and after painting.

This is before, with the drab faded 37 year old mission brown window frames (we've never had the house painted before - too hard to get up to those windows!) The fascia across the top was originally brown too, but when we got the new roof this year, the timber was covered with metal.

Today the front has been finished, with the metal fascia painted to blend with the window frames.

Very smart. I've never seen bricks like that - so many different colours. Nice but foreign-looking (to my eyes).

LOL Isabelle! There are just three colours of bricks there. It is called 'antique blend' and some of the walls in the house are the same.

Looks great ! The colour brings out the bricks too.
Makes a big difference.
