The Sun Porch

Wish I could wait and just show the final product, but I'm too excited. I've claimed the sunporch as "my space". I'm having a ball decorating it cheaply. I know the bench was an investment but I loved that I saved it. And eventually the walls will be painted, curtains will be hung, the plastic chairs will be replaced, and the perfect rug will make an appearance.
All in due time. All in due time.
And for the breakdown:

And on the wall behind the photographer is this...

I know what you're thinking. Who would want those old 1970's ugly plates?
ME that's who. I think I'm the only person out there looking for them too.
They have a homely vintage feel to them. I think they look wonderful on the sunporch.

Spring at Our House

Inspired by "What's Blooming" over at "Life in Rehab". I thought I would share the prettys in the yard now.

Is it too small?

I made this beautiful valance with my Dad and Stepmom's help. But I'm battling with the decision to keep it or not.
I got the wrong measurments for it and it doesn't look long enough in my opinion but the optimist in me thinks it might look ok with cream curtains under it. I just don't know?

Yard Sale Finds

I'm slowly but surely getting there.
Decorating the house alittle at a time.
These are two new fabulous additions for the house.
I will be framing the burlap bags in an upcoming blog.

I believe good things come to those who wait.
These wonderful finds did.
