Hello, I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend. I know I did. It’s been crazy busy around my household here lately with my daughter’s wedding only two months away and with Duncan, my fur baby. He’s not doing very well. His health is deteriorating which is requiring a lot of running back and forth to the vet. He was diagnosed in October with diabetes and it is gradually affecting his organs.
On a happier note, I shared a glimpse of my screened-in porch in an earlier post. Now I’d like to share the rest of it with you. Our screened-in porch was originally a breezeway. Two years ago, we converted it into a screened-in porch. It’s a very small porch, but I have to tell you that it is probably the most used space during the spring, summer and fall months. I have three little sitting areas and this is one of them.
Most of the things I used in accessorizing the porch were things I picked up at auctions, yard sales and thrift stores with the exception of a few purchased items. The tin star birdhouse I bought recently at the Christmas Shop.
Another corner with a little sitting area.
Sometime back, I purchased the stain glass windows at an auction and I decided to use them as a backdrop for my tabletop vignettes.
An old bakers rack fills a space on one side of the porch.
The sign was a recent purchase. I bought it at the Christmas Shop which was by the way, my inspiration for this blog title.
Another little vignette on the bakers rack.
I love this little bench! It’s made of stone and it’s very heavy.
It was a Christmas gift from my grandsons two years ago.
An old plant stand I had sits beside the bakers rack and I placed a gazing ball inside it.
Last but not least, another little corner for seating on the porch. This little area is probably the most comfortable seating area with that old metal rocker.
For those of you who ask about how I made my water feature, last year BLJ Graves Studio posted a tutorial on how she made one. I basically followed her tutorial and tweaked mine to fit my needs.
As always, thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoyed.
