Evil Spirits be Gone

The front entrance is finally finished.IMG_0602

In South Carolina, especially in Charleston, it is tradition to paint your porch ceiling a particular shade of light blue called  Haint blue. They say it keeps the evil spirits away. There are also stories that if you paint the ceiling sky blue you’ll have less wasps and bugs because they think its the sky up there. My reason for painting sky blue  is that I don’t really like wasps or evil spirit, but I really do love the summer sky. When I come home the summer sky greets me and even on a cloudy day it looks cheerful. Eventually the house siding will change to a nice earthy clay color but this entrance will stay in its summer colors.
