a pop of color

A few weeks back, I was looking at a HGTV Magazine.
There was an article about "jazzing up" your front porch.
I waited a long time to have a porch where I could have 
rocking chairs and a swing. So, I have just been enjoying it!
But, I decided even though I loved my white chairs and swing,
a little color might be nice.
Having the shower here motivated me to get it done!
So, while shopping in JoAnn's for fabric to make some pillows,
I found these two for the rockers on the 70% off clearance aisle!
They were only $8...I could hardly make them for that...
so I snapped them up!

I always found this tin pitcher with the same design on clearance 
for $6! I looked at the usual places for the hydrangeas to go in it...
Michael's, Hobby Lobby, Wal Mart, etc with no luck.
One day, I was in Big Lots just browsing and turned to go down an aisle
and there they were... waiting for me!

The same night I bought the pillows, I did buy coordinating
fabric to make two more for the swing.
I think they turned out nice.

I also refreshed  my wreath...

and bought two ferns.

I still love my white chairs and swing, but a little color
is  good thing! :-)


  1. Such an inviting porch Miss Debbie!!

  2. oh debbie, it really looks great!! i have tried jazzing up my porch but everything always gets creepy and full of cob webs, so i gave up!! yours looks awesome!!!!
