Quiet Corner

In each of our homes many of us have a corner that seems to scream, "change me!" I know mine did. This corner is found out in the sun porch, for quite sometime a wicker chair occupied this space. A while back I wanted a change, no surprise there. lol I decided to bring in the wrought iron table and chairs from the front porch. I thought making a quiet corner , a seating area for two would make a nice change. (The hanging chimes is a rabbit weather chime I've had for about 20 years, didn't realize it was in the picture, I'll share it's full beauty in a future post).
After moving it inside, I shopped the house for the perfect items to display on top. The first thing that came to mind was this great bunny weather vane. It's been in my office on top the entertainment center, purchased at Target a few years back.
I naturally had to add a few decorating books and this wonderful ivy twig. :-))
The metal basket was a find many, many years ago at Hobby Lobby, originally white, I aged it to look more like "old" metal. Looking a bit empty and needing more texture I added the topiary to fill the basket.


The old porch post was a treasure I found quite sometime ago. I thought it made a great back drop for the table. On top sits a Smith and Hawkins flower pot from Target many, many years ago.

The temperatures in our area the past weeks have been in the 100's. Today, promises to be another one of those days. I hope this finds you staying in and staying cool. Until next time.....

I love this corner you've created, Lynne! That bunny weather vane was one of the best finds ever at Target. I love mine, too!

We had a pretty good storm yesterday..hoped to have cooler temps but no such luck. We have heard 80's for next week. We'll feel like we are in a deep freeze if that happens!

Happy Weekend!

I like your new corner! It helps make the drab days of 100's seem not so drab on the inside of the house. (Just "fresh~ning" up) a bit is what I call it. Oh, by the way I love your header pics up at the top. Have a great weekend!

Hi Lynne!! How are you? Oh, my, what a lovely corner you've created. I do love that precious bunny weather vane you have! You sure do know how to decorate a lovely corner! I sympathize with you! Our temps are the the mid nineties but with our high humidity it feels like it's over 100'. I'm ready for fall.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Hi Lynne, Hope all is going well at your house.

A recent blog friend of mine is having an on line yard sale. I thought maybe if you had some things left over from your sale that you might like to try to sell them on line. You can get all the information by clicking on Fairfield House link on my sideboard.

I'm going to try to list some things, if I can fit it in. It's what I call my 'B&B' time of year with my family and friends coming and going. I'm constantly washing sheets and towels, cooking and making up beds for the next crew. Two more weeks and that should be it for this summer. I hope......

Hugs
