Hello, everyone!
I feel like I have been MIA for way too long. :)

Life has been hectic, so much that I forgot to share with you the little update I made to the front porch when the patriotic decor was put away until next year.

I didn't buy anything new. Once again I used fabric and flowers leftover from when I decorated my back porch.
Remember that?

I had everyone at home on vacation, so little planning went into decorating the front porch. 
I just sincerely had no time at all.
 I started by making a very simple wreath with the extra flowers and I used burlap for a ribbon.

 On the small white table I just added an apple greet mat, the small lantern and I also painted the solar lamp green.
Yes, I am having fun with my $4.00 thrift shop find! :)

 And on the bench, several green apple pillows.

 For the stand I made a new sign with some scrap wood we had in the garage. I just painted it white, made some vinyl letters with the Silhouette and a small banner using card stock.

 I am planning to keep it until it is time to decorate for Fall, unless I ran into a good fabric sale 
and then my plans will go out the window. LOL
Thank you all for stopping by. Enjoy your day!

  3. Hi Maria! Life does get busy and it's spinning it's little head off in my life at the moment too! Now your porch looks so pretty. Love those bright colors of green you're using and the little sign is darling! I love your bench and how you always change the pillows for the different seasons. Hope you're doing well.
    Be a sweetie,
