Come and sit a spell....

Oh how I wish I could really have you join me on my freshly redecorated front porch for a sip of lemonade or some sweet tea.



The weather is really lovely today.In fact,I typing this on my lap top while lounging on the antique iron crib pictured below. I found that old gem in the yard of a cool little antique shop,not far from Sedona.



It seemed to be missing something..so after a little thought,I grabbed these seldom used dove-like salt and pepper shakers from the kitchen,got out the mighty gorilla glue, and viola... birdy finials!



Now all I need is my record player and a stack of old 78's (Ink Spots and Glenn Miller of course), and I'll be set for the next 6 months!!!!

I've been chipping away at that list! I am actually excited to show you my laundry room makeover next! Check back in a couple of days to see more progress. Hope everyone is having a gorgeous weekend!!!

I love your porch! I have always wanted a porch just like that! I love gingerbread and your little bench is absolutely adorable. I just finished doing over my laundry/craft room. I am going to post about it tomorrow! Happy weekend hanging out on your porch!

Oh, that front porch is a vision right out of a Country Something spread. I could spend six months there, too.

Gosh, I wish my front porch looked like that, its gorgeous!!But for some reason my boys love to bring their dump trunks full of sand on the porch and the "bad black lab puppy" brings his bone collection up there too!! Ho Hum, maybe one day when I have an empty nest.
