I've heard a whisper there is a fabulous Porch Party going on today.... well, how can a girl not join a party?
Really it isn't very good porch weather here at the farm today - we've had a little drizzle of rain and the sun is hiding behind the clouds. Still it is winter here so really that's to be expected.
Even though I don't have much yellow inside my house I love this buttercup yellow colour I have on the porch. I bought this old desk/table about 10 years ago and painted it yellow - I could see it had been many other colours before I got it.
I have a couple of these yellow wicker chairs to sit on - they are starting to look a little like they need redoing but I think that will be a job for spring.
These birdhouses were all living inside when I had a much more countryfied style but since I changed things to shabby chic they have been placed on the porch.
Anyone for a cuppa from this old enamel teapot? I have a couple of these which I sometimes use for flowers - I love them filled with daisies! In the spring I have pots of purple violas and pansies on my porch - I love the combination of the purple and buttercup yellow.
Want somewhere to rest and watch the world go by??? Well I certainly wouldn't suggest this old wicker lounge - it is very fragile - in fact Mr FH would love to take it to the rubbish tip but I think it is so cute. The cat loves it too!!
I store my magzines in this old truck I happened to find one day - it stops them from getting dusty and fading in the hot Aussie sun.
This is an old meat safe which was used in the olden days to store food (it originally had flywire on three sides) but it makes a great piece for displaying more birdcages.
As I have taken my wicker table and chairs down to my new beach house I had to change things around a bit so I have brought this little setting up onto the porch. I love the aged finish this setting has and it matches perfectly with the candle holder.
