Patriotic Transformation to the Outside...

Happy 4th of July weekend coming up!
Welcome to our porch where we are going to be having several
friends and family over....
Food, Fun and Festivities.

The placemats are my thrifty find for the week. They are hand crocheted and were found at my favorite Thrift store! Yippeeee!

On our deck I transformed this wee little chest of drawers...it was very O~L~D! I lined the drawer with plastic and planted away! I poked little holes in the plastic so it could drain.
Below is one of our tables set for the Festivities. I love cupcakes and made some special ones for this weekend.

An old bucket planted spray painted red brings a little more patriotic color to the porch.

Thanks for stopping by...be sure to take a cupcake with you!!!
Playing along with these wonderful blogs!

Porch Visiting Time!

Welcome neighbors and friends...It's a porch Party! Thank you so much for stopping by for a visit! I love company...let's eat first...come on I have the table set on the patio!
And Rhondi, thank you for being the hostess of
this fun event!

You can have whatever you want...MY HUSBAND IS COOKING! I JUST VOLUNTEERED HIM!

The picture above shows my dad's cane...my parents are living with us...and we try to visit often on our porch with the kittens...laugh and tell stories...I love to see him laugh and remember funny family stories...He is 88!

The kittens have taken over my wicker furniture...

The wire planter just got planted with all white flowers...baby's breath, petunias and something else??? Can't remember!

Living on a farm we have all kinds of galvanized feeding thingamabobs...if they lay around very long....they get planted. Hubby always wants to know where things are....he can't seem to find them in the barn....Woops....they get planted!

The wheelbarrow got a flat tire? Woops...it got planted!

Is that a tea kettle? Woops it got planted>..
the turquoise blue box held 'air soft' beebies (did I spell that right?)...but after my son went to college it got spray painted and of course planted! I love flowers on the patio....pretty colors that catch your eye when you walk by....a fragrant honeysuckle...a beautiful rose. They all make this farmer girl's heart skip a beat!

Above...that WAS his rake! Big smile...

Nap anyone?

Please stop by again and we will visit!
