Some touches of Spring


This is where you enter my home. The windows change out to screens, but this time of year with the windows still in the porch warms up nicely. ~Then I can leave the kitchen door open~

Here are a couple of projects that I have been working on. This little old table was made by my grandfather. Aren't the square pegs neat? I brought it home from my Mom's about 10yrs. ago. It has been sitting up in the attic of my garage. I love the Reclaim paint I have used before. So I painted it up. The pegs show quite well now that it is painted. The I found this candle holder at Pier 1. Love it outside for summer.

 
 

Here is my next little project I have three of these lanterns. The green never really looked well, so I found this multicolor textured paint by Rust-oleum. First I primer them, then I sprayed them with the brown paint.

I love how they came out.
 


 
 
So the gardens are just starting to pop up. It is still early here and the trees have not opened yet, but they are close. Time to bring out the fairy house and get it nestled in.
 
Time to put the pansys in the window boxes. 


I also got a couple of beautiful red geraniums. I always get so anxious for the season to start. Winter felt so long.......

Your porch is so welcoming. I think I have to get some geraniums, too. I know it is early but I can move them into my porch if bad weather is here for a few days and then move them back out. I love the red geraniums with the gray cedar siding...that is what we have, too.

Happy Spring,
Susannah

Love how your lanterns came out. And that little table....so cute with the new paint!
A big pot of red geraniums just scream WELCOME to me. It's so Prim/Colonial. I use them in all my planters with some white diamond frost added for contrast.
I love all your pics!
