Colorful Spring Front Porch

I wanted to do a little something different with my porch this spring. Shake it up a bit.

Truth be told (and why in the heck wouldn't I tell the truth) I don't normally decorate the porch for spring per se.

I'm normally a summer, fall and winter porch decorator. Or would that be porch-orator?

I mean, this is Ohio. Spring is sort of fleeting and sketchy. It's unpredictable.

But with the crummy winter weather we along with most of the country had, I was itching to get some color on the porch.

And what's more colorful than a bright yellow, all up in your face, spring has sprung, table!

I hung my cabinet door that I had painted with green chalk paint on the wall.

And added a thrifted tray for added interest. At least I hope it adds interest?

I had made these pillow coverings a few weeks ago and sort of forgot to measure the pillows before I started sewing.

I know. That is a pretty obvious step to overlook.

So they are a little baggier than I would like, but the chances of me actually re-sewing them are slim to none. Hopefully baggy pillows will be the new "in" look this year.

All my past porch posts can be found by clicking on the photos below. Most of them have at least a few vintage items thrown on the porch:





P.S. - look what finally made an appearance in my yard this year. I have neighbors down the street that have had their daffs up for weeks. Not sure what's wrong with these slackers.

Do you have your porch decorated for spring? Or do you wait for summer? Or do you just throw a wreath on the door and call it a day?

A Church Rummage Sale

I went to a church rummage sale today and all I got was this t-shirt set of badminton rackets and a box of Shiny Brites.

And who knew badminton had that weird "n" thrown in the middle?

The Making Of A Vintage Thermos Collection

You know how you buy one thing. That one time. Just because it's a good deal.

Or it's really cute.

And then you start seeing similar things at yard sales for a buck or two and you think, why not?

And next thing you know, you have yourself a bona fide collection?

Well, that's what happened to me with thermoses.

Believe me, I never started out one day saying "Boy, I really need to have a collection of used insulated coffee holding devices which probably don't even work anymore and who-knows-who has drunk out of".

Nope, never happened.

DIY Vintage Seed Box

DIY tutorial for making a vintage inspired seed box

I have been lusting after all the vintage seed boxes that I've been seeing around the internet.

Lusting after one doesn't make me want to spend upwards of $100 for one though.
