A little shabby and country porch decor...

Hey Everyone!
On our back porch (which I love to drink my morning coffee here) we have a vintage feel. Behind the shutters is a small vintage refrigerator that we keep drinks and water in for the kids during the summer. The wicker couch is shabby and gets a coat of white paint every year....old vintage containers filled with ivy, a washboard and flowers getting ready to bloom all make for a wonderful spring seating area.

Yes I'm using fake pink geraniums(we still have freezing nights here in the mountains)...but I needed some color to go with my old vintage quilt pillow!


Perhaps a little snack is needed with all this decorating..(big smile)


I made the little patchwork quilt throw...I'm almost done with it...but it is nice when the breeze picks up.

I found all these wonderful pillows at the thrift store.



And best of all I have these tall Iris' blooming! Yay!

Thanks for the neighborly visit. For more visiting be sure to stop by at Beverly's blog and see all the fun pinkness!

Your porch looks like the perfect spot for a morning cup of coffee. How sweet for you to have a little frig with drinks for the children.

Happy Pink and Happy Mother's Day.
