THEN -- if you hang four or five large hummingbird feeders -- you will be guaranteed many hours of entertainment...
|This is the outside view of the porch...|
|This is the view of the feeders from our porch table...|
|From the outside, looking in, you can see my t-shirt fringe curtains...|
|My cousin Kim and I sitting on the porch -- it is one of our favorite things to do.|
|My cousin Linda and I spray painted this roll up shade. Perfect, eh??|
|When I made the cushion covers, the mission was to USE THE FABRIC I'd collected in my stash...|
|It was the summer of 2009. LILLY was a baby --|
|Me, Emily, baby Lilly, Sophie and Bella. All my girls -- chillin'on the porch...|
BECAUSE IT'S TIME FOR A CHANGE... This porch furniture was at least 40 years old when I got it in the 80's. I paid to have it reupholstered once...and that job lasted for about 10 years.
THEN, I sewed slipcovers...from scraps of fabric in my stash....and they've lasted for five years....This last set was a particular favorite of mine...
|So, this furniture is actually 70 years old?? Hey -- they sure don't make it like they used to!!|
|After five years -- the upholstery is very faded, and the mildew broke myheart....|
You're curious, right?? This is going to be sooooo much fun!!
