I had leftover fabric so I made a couple of pillows. Just hot glued inside out put in the pillow form and use jute to tie along the top. That way I can change out the covers if I want a different look. Someday I may actually sew! But I’m loving these for now! Happy […]
I found this awesome wine themed burlap at Joann Fabrics and with a 50% off coupon it was $5 a yard. I thought this print would look great in my dining room where my little bar is set up. I wanted to be able to tie them up during the day and close them at […]
I found the most beautiful color pumpkin at Walmart and it was a steal at $5.98. I had this old toolbox that I found on the side of the road, cleaned it up and gave it a quick whitewash. I wanted to fill it with all natural elements, so I added gourds and mini pumpkins, […]
I made the wood pumpkins out of old 2×4’s cut into different sizes and added them to my wrought iron stand with fall leaves. I bought the scarecrow at Scituate Art Festival (which is coming in 2 weeks yippee!) This is the other end of the porch with my all time favorite swing. I added […]
I scored this awesome rug on clearance at Kohl’s. It really anchors the rocking chairs. I added my DIY pillows from another post and some burlap on the little side table warm it up. I sat out here tonight reading and it was very peaceful. The DIY drop cloth curtains give privacy and warmth.
Like so many of you, I love fall decorating and my favorite place to decorate is my farmer’s porch. I spend a lot of time here at least until it gets too cold. I saw these adorable pumpkin topiary’s all over blog land and was psyched when Michael’s had the pumpkins 50% off. I used […]
I enjoy this time of year with the humidity fading away and life getting back to a somewhat normal routine, with kids going back to school and a slower pace during the work/school week. I crave down time sitting on either my porch swing or rocker reading, surfing, blogging and creating. I totally could be […]
I found this old ironing board at Goodwill and stenciled Welcome on the front. I also found the wooden flower box in the same trip and filled it with petunias. I have a slight obsession with lilacs and added them in little milk bottles in the wrought iron stand that I’ve had for years. I […]
I love this time of year and enjoy decorating my front porch with the changing seasons. I am just about finished for the Summer season and thought I would share some of my favorites. Rather than a standard wreath on the front door, I went with this grapevine ( I think it’s grapevine) that […]
I decided to make some burlap placemats with the leftover curtain material. I used stazon-on ink to stamp the cute little Easter bunny and to get longer use, I stamped flowers on the other side!
