I was beyond excited when we drove up to a yard sale in Amarillo Texas and spotted this horse and carriage. I figured it would be more than I wanted to spend, and was pleasantly surprised when it was only $10.
The lights on the carriage wheels didn't work but that was ok as I planned to take them off anyway.
After a makeover, I put my horse and carriage under a tree in front of the porch in the front yard.
I thought about giving my stallion a coat of stain, but decided instead that his worn look gave him lots of character.
I have a Patriotic theme going on in the front yard this summer, so I added some flags to the carriage.
I've used my umbrella many times in the past over the pony buggy you can see in the background.
I used a yard sale can can to cover my World Market umbrella frame..
Rose garlands completed the look I was going for
This is the view I have from the car as we pull into the garage.......
I don't keep fabric on the gliders unless we are entertaining.
I have plenty of comfy seating available for guest to sit and visit
Sometimes we entertain during the day......but most of the time, it's in the late afternoon and evening.......
I enjoy your visits so much.....please come back soon!
