Scenes From Our Porch

Sounds like a movie title, right? Yep, the movie would center around a young (in my mind) woman who spends her days rocking in the chair while fluffy clouds float by in the bright blue sky, reading her newest suspense novel while sipping tea. In reality it is me sitting for about 3.2 seconds reading a manual on how to get some stupid caterpillar riding toy together all the while trying not to swear out loud. And my tea? It's prolly mixed with whiskey. Just sayin...
I wanted to take a few pics of the porch all decked out for the 4th of July, this (besides Christmas of course:) is one of my favorite holidays! I love the colors, stars, flags, everything about it. This will stay up all summer. The barn door is ripped off of my inlaws barn they tore down last summer. I added an old egg crate that I repainted and a beautiful old looking lantern.
This milk can is also from the farm, I have another in the front that I would like to spray paint someday, lol.

The bench I found at an antique store that Mom bought me for my birthday, it happens to match the barn door perfectly!


I really love this area, red (if you couldn't tell) is my absolute favorite color. I have a red wall in the dining room, and a red bathroom. Ummm, oh yeah, my bedroom colors are red too. And my living room curtains are red.....You get the idea.

We love coming out in the morning to drink coffee before our wild and crazy days begin, and at night to enjoy some, uhhhh, tea. Ya, somethin like that....

Love the pop of red. How nice to have accessories with such a personal story. Love the milk can, too. I think I'd leave it the way it is... it looks cute and rustic.
Great vignette.
