Repurposed Twin Bed

Summer Porch


I finished decorating the porch for summer today and I am so excited to share it with you!     H and I haven't bought New outdoor furniture in over 15 years.    I've picked up a piece here and there at yard sales over the years,   but I wanted something new this time!

Barnyard Fairy Garden


I picked up some little piggy fairies at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago and couldn't wait to use them in a Barnyard Fairy Garden on the front porch.

Summer Mantel on the Porch


I know it isn't officially summer yet,   but I was ready to take down the spring vignette that was on the faux fireplace mantel on the front porch.

Big Changes on the Front Porch


H and I haven't bought NEW outdoor furniture in more than 15 years,   and we decided it's about time!    We've bought lots of neat pieces at yard sales but most of them are not safe to sit in anymore....lol!    
I can't wait to show you the new look,   but fist I wanted to share how we moved out all the pieces that were under the protected part of the porch.     If  I expect the new furniture to last and last,  it needs to be under the protected part of the porch.

Red White and Blue Wall Flag


A large Patriotic flag painted on the side of a barn has always been one of my favorite yard decorations.    But how could I create something like that in my back yard......no barn.......and not enough skill to paint a big flag on a wall....lol!

Farmhouse Barn Doors


I found some faux Farmhouse barn doors for the studio and they were less than $20!   I think you will be surprised to find out where I found them.....in the shower curtain dept. on Amazon!

Repurposing a Hat Display Stand


When I had my booth,   I bought a black iron stand at the auction to display the vintage hats for sale in my booth    I closed my booth a couple of years ago and this black iron piece has been sitting out in the storage area behind the studio.     H and I have been cleaning out some of these storage areas around the yard (we have more than one area that collects things ....lol)  

Weekend Treasure Hunt


I just realized that I haven't done a Weekend Treasure Hunt post in a long time!    H and I have had a busy spring and have not had time to go yard sale-ing in a while,  but we "made time" on Saturday.   Sometimes you just have to make time to have fun don't you!

The Softer Side of Patriotic Decor


I am not a big fan of the bolder patriotic colors......the red white and blue looks out of place with my pastel decor.    So,  I decided to use a very pale red.....kinda pink,   hehee ......with a pale blue instead of navy and the traditional white!

Windmill Blade Planter and Billy the Kid


H and I took a drive over to Fort Sumner New Mexico this afternoon......it's a little town about 60 miles from where we live.   There is a windmill repair shop over there that I wanted to go by and maybe purchase a piece of windmill for the yard.  

Of course leave it to me to forget to take photo of the windmill repair shop,  but I did get a photo of the little coffee shop/ gift shop/  restaurant/  and windmill repair shop office  that his wife has across the street....lol!
