I've kept an area rug on the back porch for years thinking that I needed it to give the porch a "cozy" feel.   Does anyone else think that having a rug outdoors is way too much work?    Instead of vacuuming several  times a week.    H just takes the leaf blower out and cleans off the porch in a matter of minutes!

Gone with the Wind Lamp brightens corner in the Sunroom

I was looking for a way to brighten up this corner in the Sunroom and remembered a gorgeous vintage Gone with the Wind lamp that belonged to my Mother.    I've always kept it "safe" in a spare   bedroom.... seldom seen.....and almost forgotten.
