Front Porch Before. Sorry for the blurry pic. I guess my Kodak had too much vino..
Front Porch After
A few of my fabulous finds. I made the table covering from fabric collected during my travels to Florida. Everything else is either a gift, a found object, or a purchase from a thrift store or garage sale.
Close up! I am a Wine-O and a Martini Lover. All part of my collection. The red crab is a bottle opener I bought at an antique store. Love it!
A wall hanging I made. The fish are made from vintage fabrics and old house dresses that my husbands grandmother gave to me to use for rags.

I recently went to Chautauqua Institution for a day of stolling. I have visited there many times, but when I returned home this day I was so inspired that I finally finished the sitting area of my front porch.
