New lamp for the Porch

New lamp for the Porch

In my quest to perfect my Summer Porch, I decided I needed a new lamp!


Although I love my bird lamp, (and he will be back), he did not go with my color scheme!


So, off to Goodwill I went in hopes of finding a lamp for cheap that I could paint!

I scored BIG TIME!!!Continue reading

Summer Porch!

Summer Porch!

In the good ole’ summertime……..

in the good ole’ summertime…….

I don’t know how the weather is where you are, but….



Oh well…….that’s summertime in Texas, y’all!!

So, I fixed a glass of tea and “tweaked” my front porch for summer!



I added a couple new pillow covers to the wicker swing…


…..and made a couple of my own….

I also made a couple of pillows for the rockers….

With some leftover fabric, I covered an old lamp shade….


The shade was a little small to put the magnetic flower on it, so I just moved it down onto the shaft of the lamp!


I brought my “neon” green wreaths back out, “tweaking” them a little by adding some herringbone ribbon.


I just LOVE herringbone…’s classic….never goes out of style!!



I added a little green burlap….


gotta have a burlap touch, right??!!


Last, I picked up a couple faux greenery orbs at Hobby Lobby and placed them in my orbs!  You can see my “orb” experience HERE!!

I’d love to have you stop by!


  I’ll be sittin’ on the porch, sipping tea, rockin and watchin the world go by!


Until next time……..
