The beginning of the summer season, the opening of the pool, Armed Forces Day, Memorial Day and this year a very big graduation.
So I finally decided to throw away my tattered (that's a nice way of putting it) wicker furniture and went with some new pieces to dress up the porch. A splash of color in the furniture this year.
Here is what we are starting off with and will add to in the next week or so.
New RED chairs for the porch...I left the Made in the U.S.A stickers on them (hehe)
Left side of the porch w/ chairs and flags flying
I gave the old Pier 1 trunk a makeover AGAIN..this time just dry brushed some CeCe Caldwell's Memphis Blue over the tired Black.
Touched up my Marine and he and the other 3 branches of the military are sold in my Lucky 7 Design shop in Woodbridge, NJ
Nothing like a Boston Fern hanging on the front porch to make it summertime. Old Glory right next to it.
This wind chime makes the loudest but nicest sound
My "window to nowhere" as my brother calls it...with some butterflies.
Vintage Ball Jar is now flag holder.
Scrap piece of picket fence got some white paint and will be adorned with some patriotic pieces as I add them.
My simple little sitting area, bench, bird bath and bird feeder.
A view from the lawn
THANKS FOR VISITING MY PORCH....HOPE YOU ALL WILL SOME YOUR PATRIOTISM THIS MONTH AND EVERYDAY.
GOD BLESS THE U.S. MILITARY
GOD BLESS AMERICA
