I have been busy spring cleaning my small back porch (boy, did it need it after all the seeds, etc. falling-Yuk!). I was thinking about buying a new patio set (w/o the table), but decided to use what I had and add some cushions I had " in my stash" that my daughter-in-law, Mikki, gave me a couple years ago for a home I was "staging". I rearranged the swing and planted a little flowers (I mean, just a little...because my back protests very loudly) :( :(
I am working on adding a few other decorative items out there....check back to see what I come up with....trying to see what I can do with what I have and no spending!! Well....., Shush...maybe just a little? :) (Save for vacation maybe?) I just love sitting out here in the morning having my coffee and hearing the birds sing. The thing is, I get soooo sleepy after all that fresh air, this girl has to have a nap ( a luxury to be sure).
I wonder how long the log rack will be here??? Hopefully, hubby will remove it sooooon so I will have more room...(lol) This will be an ongoing project for a couple more weeks or until the temperature reaches above 90 degrees or so -Ugh! It has cooled here somewhat; I believe temp is in the upper 70's today with drizzle (great for flowers and grass).
Hope you enjoy and have a wonderful day.
|"Before": (As you can see...a lot of things still need to be removed- box, old wind chimes, old rugs,|
and logs) (I hope hubby reads this- lol)
|"Before": Opposite brick wall.|
|BEFORE -lovely wood pile.|
|"After": Moved the swing over to the brick wall , added new cushions and picture which I just fell in luv with!|
|"After": Ahh! I can see the ocean!! Great Goodwill find!!|
Sorry, I know it's a little crooked...photographer was a little off that day. :) :) :) (Really, most days lately -lol)
|"After": Added this green bubble vase for centerpiece with silk flowers. I did add some sand to the bottom so the wind would not take it away. I will add more pics of chairs with cushions later.|
