Fall Porch

Because I was going to be away for approximately 2 weeks,

I decided not to decorate my front porch until I returned.

Well, I am back and the porch got a Fall facelift.

One of the first things that I did when we returned home

was to go to the Farmers’ Market. One of my favorite places.

Front Porch for Spring 2015

I gave you a bit of a sneak peek of the porch with my front porch wreaths here.

Today, I will show you the rest of the porch dressed for Spring.

I began the decorating of the front porch by purchasing two pillows for the settee.

The pillows are from HomeGoods and I chose them for their happy colors.

HomeGoods Happy that is!

which I tried to coordinate with the color scheme of the pillows.

Shabby/Industrial Chic on the Porch

It’s another treasure presented today from my antiquing field trip.

You may have seen a sneak peek of this unique sort of piece.

I loved it and I knew that my hubby would love it too . . . and he did.

Not sure about how unusual it is; however, I have never seen an item like this with multiple uses.

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas -The Christmas 2014 Front Porch

Twas the Night Before Christmas . . .

When all through the house . . . . not a creature was stirring . . . not even a mouse!

The stockings were hung by the chimney with care . . .

In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

Rainy Days and Mondays {A Country French Hutch/Armoire}

As the rains come down today, I do not feel so bad working in the garage on a project.

The opportunity arose to purchase a French Country hutch/armoire from a neighbor. . .

~ ~ that had moved months ago.

I had purchased a few furniture pieces from her prior to her move . . .

~ ~ and was admiring a pretty French hutch/armoire of hers that she was taking with her.
