Sprucing up the Porch with Summer Sale Decor

I have been sprucing up the front porch with some of the great deals on decor I have found at the end of summer sales.

I am always excited when my friend Liz has her big summer sale at the Milk House Market in Friona Texas.    There is always a line clear into the parking lot of ladies wanting to get in to shop before things are picked over.  so my daughter & I drove over early.   There was already about 50 ladies waiting for the shop to!   

  I picked up the chicken wire cloche that is part of my farmhouse tablescape.

I had been eyeing this plant scale for quite a while and was glad to see it was still there when I finally got in the shop......

Wish I had taken a before photo,   but I couldn't wait to get it hung and filled with flowers.

I have the farmhouse table decorated for a get together later.    I am serving cocktails and appetizers on the porch before we head out to the restaurant for dinner with friends.    

I'm sure you are aware of the big 75% off sale that Hobby Lobby has going on now......

The Farmhouse rules sign came from there and the water tank / vase did too.

I had a different rooster in this vignette the last time you saw it,   but I needed the metal one for my tablescape,    So,   I borrowed the concrete rooster that was on the back porch to put in it's place.

The grey metal rooster on this end of the table was 50% off at Hobby Lobby.......

The big white sunflowers were 50% off at At Home.

The cow pillow was 75% off at Hobby Lobby ....and so was the Rooster one you saw earlier.

The white enamel water spout / bowl that is filled with greenery was 75% of at Hobby Lobby.     And last but not least is the chicken wire cloche that was free!    H used a piece of left over chicken wire from another project to make me a couple of cloches for my tablescape.    

I always enjoy your visits so much,    please come back again soon!
