My porch is very small, and I don't have a lot to work with
as far as 'decor' goes, so I use what I have and
what I find in the garden, barn and woodland.
Below is the garden 'Welcome' sign that I made
this Spring. I placed it on the bench and
added a branch of wild rose hips.
A homemade grapevine wreath is also adorned with
wild rose hips.
A vintage milk can from my Grandpa's farm is topped
with a yellow garden mum and Cinderella Pumpkins
(Rouge Vif D'Etampes), Carnival and Sweet Meat
Squash harvested from the garden find a place
to greet guests, too!
An old, brilliantly colored wool blanket is draped
across the bench ~ the cats love to scout for farmyard
activity from here while staying out of the weather.
Another pumpkin temporarily holds the place where a burlap
pillow in the making will sit.
An apple basket filled with more squash (and a wayward tomato ~
how'd that get in there?) and a vintage cream can are
next to the bench and an old twig broom with a few sparse
leaves, grasses and pods hangs above.
It's a shock of color but company has no trouble finding the front door!
That's my porch for today ~ it will change as my mood
changes, just like our weather!
