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.....
