The Porch–Red, White and Blue

What gorgeous weather we had for this Memorial Day weekend! 


We spent most of our time outdoors this weekend enjoying the company of family and friends. 


A couple of mornings, I actually took the time to sit on my front porch and drink my morning coffee.   


It almost felt like I was on vacation.  Have you ever felt that way?


I guess tomorrow it’s back to reality, working in the garage.  No more fun in the sun at least not until this coming weekend.


As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Picket Fence Organizers

  I LOVE days like this!  I spent most of it in the garage working on projects and I feel like I accomplished so much.  Two of the projects I finished were these picket fence organizers.  I did one in green…….


  …….and the other in white.   


I had enough picket fencing left over from making potting benches to make two of them.


I was so proud of myself today because I hooked up the air compressor and used the nail gun for the first time without Charlie’s help.  I have used the nail gun many times before but Charlie has always hooked it up for me.


Don’t you just love days where you feel like you have accomplished so much?  I’m hoping tomorrow will be another productive day but I have a funny feeling it won’t be.  I am going to be working on an old washstand and it needs a lot of work but I’m going to think positive.  Maybe it’s not as bad as I think it is.  I’ll keep you posted! 

As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful and productive day tomorrow!

The Tobacco Basket

Hello Everyone!   I hope you all  had a wonderful weekend.  The weather here was absolutely gorgeous!  Last week, I was given a tobacco basket that I said I would share with you where I was going to hang it.  After I cleaned it up I hung it in the family room.    


I placed it on the wall behind the sofa.


The mirror I have in the middle of the basket was an auction purchase many years ago.  I kept flip flopping between the mirror and a wreath but the mirror won out! 


This is a full view of the family room.  


As always, thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Tobacco Basket

Hello Everyone!  Look at what I was gifted……


…’s a tobacco basket!! 

For years, I have been wanting and searching for one. They are so hard to find and when you do find one they are expensive.

I know exactly where I’m going to hang it and I can’t wait to share it with you. 

Thank you Darren for such a lovely gift!

As always, thanks for stopping by.
