Hello everyone! Right now I'm hooked on porch decor, decorating outside and having lots of visitors over to visit, swim, barbecue and enjoy. Julia @http://hookedonhouses.net/ has started this party! Be sure to check out all the fun!
Don't you love red? Don't you love red, white and blue? I do! This is from the front porch of our farmhouse. We live on 3 acres in a very, very rural part of So. California. My hubby and I enjoy sitting on our front porch and looking out at our animals grazing...I of course bring my cross stitching with me because you can only watch animals graze for so long...with their heads down...chewing grass. Hubby loves it....I (yawn) would rather be doing something else!
This is an old chest of drawers from his grandfather. He was horrified when I spray painted it red! Mr. Farmer (hubby) informed me he didn't like red, I told him to think "Tomatoes"...then he kind of simmered down. I have to talk farm terms to him when it comes to decorating!
This old white strainer is from my side of the grandparents...
Love this quilt. We got it when we were first married, and we visited Lancaster, Pa. with my parents on a vacation. I wanted to swoon when I saw all the quilts at the Amish homes for sale. OK I still swoon when I see beautiful quilts. They get to me...so does Mr. Farmer hubby but that's another topic!
This pillow is from the 1960's, it is a little weathered but I love to bring it outside during the hotter months!
One of my favorites to read outside with a glass of ice tea.
It was 100 degrees here today and humid. Oh my!
So glad you came by for a visit!
