Welcome to my Summer 2012 front porch. I know I show you this on a regular basis, but it’s one of my favorite places to switch things up. It’s easy, inexpensive and you know what they say…you only have one chance to make a good first impression.
I pulled out my red Pier 1 cushions. I had to go down my basement with a flashlight to get these. (Still no power. Day 6 but who’s counting?)
I looked several places for a white lamp shade with red trim but had no luck finding one. I finally remembered I had this white lamp shade that had been my daughter’s. I picked up some giant red rick-rack to add as the trim. I stood in my sewing room this morning, sweating like mad, and realized I couldn’t plug in my glue gun to attach the trim. I will confess that a few choice words escaped my mouth. I grabbed a few straight pins and just pinned it on. Good enough for now.
The pillow covers are made from 2 fabrics I ordered from Fabric.com. The bird print is an outdoor fabric from Richloom called Ash Hill Garden. The reverse is also from Richloom and it’s called Rozelle Garden.
I am a regular visitor to Fabric.com and when I saw this I just couldn’t resist. I adore the birds.
When I went home today for this photo shoot I saw an AEP truck one street over. I am trying not to get my hopes up but wouldn’t it be wonderful if I could sleep at home tonight? Fingers crossed and all that.
See you soon!
