Fun pillow from a tea towel.  I am originally from PA, so I loved the PA Dutch(ish) material. The great chair was found floating in the lake...my kind of junk!
Great old trunk found at a yard sale.  I cleaned it up and added legs.  It now holds the kids toys on the porch.

I just love our front porch.  Not only because it is cozy...but I love all the stories behind the junk/treasures displayed!

I have a couple, we have some nasty weather here in northeastern Nevada, so I can only do kool stuff in the summer. Could I ask you a question? How do I link my pofolksdecorator1 from this awesome site to my myspace page? I would love to get some pr for the little shop I hope to open.... Great job! Annie Posted: 7:24 pm on March 11th

What a lucky find that was! *Love* the legs added to the trunk. Hmm...that'd make a great table, with a piece of glass. Maybe I won't pass up the next trunk I see. You folks have the *best* ideas, and are so generous here! Happy New Year! Posted: 11:33 pm on January 2nd
