When I came back in from watering the new flower babies out front, I noticed that the porch was dirty. Well, not now of course. You know I cleaned it up before taking pictures.
During each season, I change this iron flower basket to something different. I've had it for years, so it's been changed a lot of times.
Today it has an orchid along with hydrangeas, ivy, berries, and some feathers and other fillers. And I added a new black and white checked ribbon. I stared at 20 ribbons and thought they all would look good, and this one finally won out.
If you haven't seen this area before, you might like to know that the porch floor is faux tile. Another very easy, and time consuming project. This was a quick fix several years ago. It has several coats of waterbased poly on it and it has stood up to being outside (covered) for many years. I am planning to put travertine over it, like the back door area, but just never got around to it yet.
The door has been blue, green, white and goodness knows what. It's been painted an antique faux bois (pretend wood) for lots of years, too. Even though it was natural wood to begin with. This I still love, so it can stay. :)
Hope you are all having a great week!
