Hi! Thanks for stopping by. Can you sit a while and visit? I love porches. Don't you? They say 'Welcome' to the world. I'm lucky to have a good sized front porch for sittin' and swingin' This wonderful cedar swing was hand-made in Kentucky. It was a a house-warming gift from my parents when we first moved into our new house in 94'. I wanted the porch to have it's own personality. Our house is a Cape Cod design..so patriotic touches are a given. I knew right away that this swing needed a throw of some kind. I love quilts, but have no patience when it comes to doing one and our budget is very limited so purchasing one in red, white, and blue seemed doubtful. Most yard sales and flea markets, were I was able to find one, wanted an arm and a leg. Years ago at the Burlington Antique Market I was surprised to find this pillow that was created from a vintage flag. The 'coffee table' was a freebie. My Mother-In-Law was getting rid of a nest of three half-round tube framed tables with pressed board tops. I covered the top with red and cream ticking fabric and added a blue canvas skirt.
This vintage tablecloth is to become a couple of pillows to go on my swing and my retro look chairs...no..that vintage 1940's chair in foreground is not original....it's a $19.99 Sale at Home Goods!!
If you haven't been to Home Goods you just gotta go. They're a part of TJmax, but better. When they have a clearance sale it's really a sale on everything for the home. Oh, I think the tea is ready....I'll be right back............
