Mom and I decided to get out and about the town one day this week....hit a few antique shops and consignment stores. It was absolutely delightful to spend a day with my mother, doing "our thing"!!! With all the work Eddie and I have been doing on the house, I just haven't been able to find the time to "junk around" with Mom. Being close to Family and spending time with them was one of the main reasons we relocated here! How frustrating not to have MADE the time to do just that....but, Mom and I are back on track with our day out together.
Anyhoo, we found this absolutely charming little rocker in the first shop we hit....perfect for our little front porch in both size and condition. And a steal at only $30!!! I was in LOVE at first sight....grabbed it and headed for the checkout!
Trayden and Ansleigh were over for a couple of hours on Tuesday evening while their momma went to get her hair done and they had "helped" me re-pot the asparagus fern we bought last week. Doesn't it look fabulous cozied up with the rocker....both nestled beneath an old wreath I dug out of a box in the garage.(Makin' do with what I got, Dear Friends!)
When the weather warms a bit more (and gets a little more reliable), I will be able to fill the planter on the side of the porch. I'm thinking some vibrant red geraniums and perky purple petunias, with a little ivy trailing over the sides....what do you think?
Well, that's what I'm lovin' this Friday! Linking up with Cheryl over at Tidymom today....pop over and take a look at what some other folks are lovin' today. You're sure to find some inspiration!
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
