Welcome to 'part' of my front porch...
(what you don't see is sort of messy and didn't quite 'make the cut' for the pictures!)
It's definitely not perfect...
There is always stuff falling from the oak trees to sweep up, now it's the acorns.
(check out the garage windows...Mr. Wild used large paper towels as curtains...I HAVE to fix that!
Oh well...at least they are white!)
And I never have enough time to really make it pretty...
a few fresh flowers from the garden...that helps.
Then there are the To Do's....
I was wishing I would find the middle piece but I accidentally found the set of 3 at a flea market this summer for a steal so I grabbed them.
Just waiting for Mr. Wild to help me place some patio stones down, to cover the weeds and make a flat surface.
I think my list is waaay too long because I feel like none of this will ever get done!
And the next project I hope to finish before the weekend.
I found the old wicker chair and footstool at a flea market and garage sale.
I absolutely adore the chair!
(oops...forgot to take the tape measure and stuff off the arm rest)
All I need is some pretty vintage looking fabric to make a seat cushion and a thin padding for the back. It evidently had a little padded back tied or nailed to it at one time.
The footstool is a reproduction and I will spray paint it canvas white and then apply a little antiquing to it, maybe try to knock a few chips here and there into the new paint, recover it too.
My plan is to get this ready to haul out to Wyoming, it will sit on the porch out there along with a shabby wicker side table I picked up also at a flea market. It will be the perfect place to sit and stitch while sipping a tall glass of iced tea! Someday!!!! When I can retire! And quit making lists of To Do's!
It looks like I'm about to hit 500 followers! I never dreamed there would be that many wonderful people when I started this blog. I think it's time for a Giveaway!
I've been thinking of what it will be so please stop back...soon...maybe this weekend...or next week...
Thanks for stopping!
P.S. I did a short post this morning with the beginning of the bunkhouse "here".
