liberty…

have a wonderful memorial day weekend, everyone! 
my small front porch is decorated in blues and reds, so, I thought I'd share some of it today.  in one corner, there is an angel.

    remember this green shutter?  its been in a bedroom, (that I’m ready to re-do), so it gets a new life on the porch.

if you flip the shutter over, you get this awesome chippy blue color!  I grouped it with my angel, one of my husband’s pedestals and my newest rose--a climbing blaze.
           here’s a shot of the applique I finally put on the pedestal.

my stool, all rusty with a bit of gray blue paint, sits next to my front door, and has a mason jar of roses and catmint on top.

these’s a big flag with a tin star added to the blue field.  below the flag is just enough room for 2 metal bistro chairs.

the walkway has catmint hanging over it, which I love the overgrown look, and the mint smells wonderful.  the victorian plant hanger was a mom's day gift years ago.

  2. I wonder how many different ways I can say how much I love your porch? LOL I must sound like a broken record, but this is the type of porch I see myself sitting on in my dreams, reading a good book, sipping a cool drink.
    It is so SO beautiful Lynn!

  14. Everything looks just beautiful and I love the way you've displayed your flag. (I get tired of unwrapping mine from around the flag pole.) It looks so bright and sunny in your yard and we've had nothing but rain for almost a week. I need some of your sunshine!

  26. I am in love with that old stool!

    I'm green with envy that I couldn't join you at the Springfield Flea Market - I used to live in Columbus and it was one of my favorite stomping grounds!

    The flag, mason jar, stamped spoon, shutter - all your details are pure perfection!

    So glad you joined our Outdoors party!
