Rain Boots on the Porch

Rain Boots on the Porch

Last summer I took a pair of my husbands rubber boots and spray painted them……..you can see that HERE!

This year I found a pair of rainboots at the local thriftshop for $5.00 (no painting required)!!

I love the “sunniness” and color they bring to the porch!

Filling them with some flower sprigs I found on sale at Hobby Lobby made them complete!!!


Such a simple change and update!!!

I’m anxious to keep them out during summer and change them around with tall sunflowers, bluebonnets or Indian paint brush (all things TEXAS!) Any type of flower will do!!!


Keep your eyes open for sales on sweet rain boots like these!!!  They are everywhere!!!


Happy Spring!!!

Spring Around the Manor

Spring Around the Manor

Spring has sprung around the Manor……….


I placed my glass bird cloche on top of a pedestal holding a battery operated candle (remember my “trash to treasure” post), some spanish moss and trimmed with some green beaded garland.  It adds a nice warm glow in the evening.  Three little porcelain birds keep watch.

Aren’t these three little bottle brush geese adorable?!!!


I picked them up from Pottery Barn…..


….I just love em!


They hold watch over my bee keeper…..


…..and work nicely with my super simple spring chalkboard! I love the little nest holding my chalk!!


Another spring chalk art!!


If you look closely, you’ll see a couple of “bunny” friends in the scale clock!

Just adding a couple of white ceramic  birds along with a burlap flower to a vignette takes it into spring!

And, Spring just wouldn’t be complete without a few lambs…..


…..and an orchid!  Fingers crossed I can keep it alive!


I’m finishing up the kitchen and the front porch and bringing out more bunnies and eggs today!

I’ll share soon!

Until then…….
