This might be the only time a "Before" looks better than an "After"

So, whether it be laying out while the kiddos are swimming or stealing a moment of fresh air and silence this is my view from my lounge chairs. We'll call this photo the....

"Before"



And we'll call this one the...

"After"

My very friendly neighbors are home from their camping trip. So my once serene (nobody's watching me) view of the pool has ummm changed!

Any suggestions on how to tackle this view on a limited budget??

No, asking them to leave on vacation more often is not an option!

Be sure to click on each photo to get the FULL affect! ;)

okay well all I know is that I'm totally jealous of your view, even with the big RV!

Guess you'll have to quit that skinny dipping after the kids are in bed now...

Oh no!! maybe you could ask them to paint a mural of the sky on it!! :)
your backyard is still very lovely though! I hardly noticed the RV the pool is too pretty to look anywhere else!

Hey girl... there's a huge Tracy Porter article in the Family Circle magazine. I totally thought of you the whole time I was reading it...

Hi Angie,
I would get some inexpensive large pots and put tall Italian Cypress in them. Put as many of them there to match the length of the RV.
You can buy Cypress at any local nursery and they really are not that expensive. The great thing is they make a "wall" effect. Hope that helped!

If you get a chance come by my Blog for a visit and say hi. I have put up quite a few new posts and will be putting more up this week from the San Francisco International Gift Fair where my Pillow Collection was featured and Romantic Homes who has featured my Pillows in their beautiful magazine.

Have a great week,
Aimee

Yay!! You're back!! I have really missed you too! Dangit, girl you can't just leave town like that and not tell me! (Okay, that sounded all stalkerish and creepy... you know I didn't mean it like that right?) Seriously though... I really did miss seeing "Angie" in my inbox. Life just wasn't as funny anymore.. hence the LACK of funny posts. It's no fun to write about your drama when there isn't an ANGIE to laugh at it. I mean that from the bottom of my little heart.

So... thankyou for coming back. I really appreciate it. lol
