As the Porch Changes

Thanks for coming by the porch for a visit. Today I'll show you a 're-do' for part two

A new porch quilt for the swing. Okay for $9.99 on sale at Wal-Mart I couldn't pass it up. As you can see I don't change things too much year to year. Indoor decor/outdoor decor I add to my collection. 
I found this little ceramic cruet for .50 at an antique mall. I could not believe it matched the quilt when I got it out of my cabinet

As I said before things don't change much just get rearranged and added to
Remember my porch wall?
With the Lincoln commemorative plate?
Well lookie what I found.......
A new oil lamp with a floral motif that matches the the flower pattern of the plate and the cup that went with the plate
The cup was again an antique mall find for $1..the oil lamp was a yard sale find for $5. We also got our vintage glider from the same yard sale for free, but that's another post.
I added a new tablecloth which is a vintage hand-embroidered multi-colored piece. 
We also added a few hanging oil lamps in a rusty finish we found up in Amish country

I also rearranged my redwood seating area table
My MIL gave me the ivy candelabra, which works perfectly.

 These plaster pansies add a little color to the porch posts and also reflect the floral motif on the opposite porch wall

I can always find plaster fruit from the 30's and 40's, but
flowers not so much.

So this is today's installment of 'As the Porch Changes'
What will be different tomorrow.....what new piece will be added next? And, what about the Kitchen Porch!?
Stay tuned.
Oh, and don't forget to go to my Blog Party Page HERE to see all the fun parties I link to.
