Wicker whites

Good morning lovies~~~~brrrrrrr....it's so cold this morning, our furnace came on! What is up with that?!
Our weekend was spent with my BFF from Heaven's Walk...Laurie. We spent Sunday at the flea/antique market, and found some awesome treasures. I found these wonderful wicker chairs at a great shop just down the road from Laurie's house.
My husband surprised me yesterday by cleaning them up, and having them all painted by the time I got home from work.

I put this little table out on the sun porch, and added the chairs around for a summer gathering spot.
The paper lanterns added a cozy feel last night as we sat on the porch watching the boats go by.
I think this little spot will be a great place for "happy hour" in the evenings, and also for tea in the morning.
sigh....life is good.
Enjoy your day.
I'm joining Faded Charm for White Wednesday. Stop over and check it out!
Also sharing with Show and Tell Friday over at My Romantic Home. Take a trip over to see some wonderful treasures.


  1. How lovely, Debbie! The chairs are perfect with your white table and your floral pillows make the scene especially inviting...I also love your early American wrought iron candle holder! The lanterns certainly lend a whimsical summery touch...I know that you will enjoy your coffee and toast and your wine and cheese in this lovely setting...Cassandra ♥
