Last week I decided to start sprucing up the front porch for Spring. The fine weather found us out adding what seemed like endless bags of soil to the sides of the new driveway, required but boring work! After taking a breather, my thoughts were directed toward doing something prettier and a bit more creative!
A quick trip to Jo-Ann's Fabrics where I found a great buy on the white candles I needed to freshen up the candolier.............................that included cleaning the crystals which made a big difference in the sparkle effect!
Grabbed few extra candles for the candelabra. These I wrapped in vintage music sheets, rubber stamped with Paris symbols, look much more interesting don't they?
Outdoor areas are always fun to decorate. Having a covered area is great because you do have more options regarding safety from the elements. My porch is tiny, just room for three wicker chairs and a small table.......with the potting bench at the far end where I'll be sprucing some more soon.
A BREATH OF FRESH AIR is a fresh version of my former three year blog ACROSS THE POND which can still be accessed by clicking on the title above.
I'm a transplanted Brit enjoying life in North Carolina. 50 years journeying back and forth across the wide Atlantic Ocean have kept me busy.......and made my life very interesting! I'm still traveling often - look forward to sharing many new places during the next couple of years.
