Lovin' some new old stuff.

I feel like Diana (Nana Diana Takes A Break) today.
Excited to find something "old" that makes your heart skip a beat.
Something other than my old husband.

To some, this may look like a ratty old wicker table found at a second hand store.
To me, it's a breath of fresh air.

We've been painting the trim on the house.
The shutters went from drab grey, to did the porch.
The railings, and window boxes all got a fresh coat of white paint.

I'm looking for pieces for this porch.
The opposite corner, with the nasty electric box thingies, has a sweet, old wicker chair I found at the same shop this table was found.

I can't cover the stupid electric box thingies,because the meter readers complain when I do that.
So I kept the area free this year.
It still looks kind of sparse out there.

Oh well, at least when I look out the door, I don't see the ugly chipped up porch floor, and gross dark grey rain gutter, and drab shutters anymore.
Now it's bright, and cheerful...and lookin' like new!
Dang, I still have to clip those metal hooks off the flower baskets.....
Gonna go love my new old porch some more.
Enjoy your weekend!


  1. I like the wicker table. Have a fun weekend!

  2. The new colours are very pretty and fresh looking. Love the flowers too.

  3. Debbie, Don't clip the hooks off...bend them into the flowers to hide them. That way you can reuse the pot to hang next year if you like. I love the linen color on the porch. Got to love a new layer of's just perked things up. xoxox, Susie

  4. i love your wicker find...especially the green on white. Your porch looks very relaxing!

  6. Very nice, it looks very inviting. I think we have the same color on our houses *smile*. Have a nice sunday.


  7. I just want to sit on your porch with a glass of lemonade and my latest book - beautiful!

  8. Hi Deb, I love your new paint colors! Both look great together, and I love old wicker too, so much stronger than todays! Love your flowers and your roses are fab. I sure wish I could grow them but we get to much shade around here and I doubt they'd grow!

  9. What a sweet little table!
    Your porch is looking great...perfect place to relax (wish I could join you!)!!
