Porch update. . .

Just wanted to share a quick pic of my newly painted star and furniture, and as you can see, I decided on blue for the star.

I am so in love with this shade of blue right now!
I wanted the original color of the star to still come through so I just lightly brushed this on.

I love the color and contrast against the brick.

Plus, it matches my Pier one pillows perfectly!

This is our newly painted rocker that Jeffro painted for me.

I think he did a pretty job, if I say so myself.

Told ya'll, we've been busy!

Oh and here's a quick shot of my flowers, that I decided to get as my mother's day gift.

I want to get 2 more baskets of them though, to finish out my porch.

These are called calibrochia and so far, they are thriving, so YAY for me!

The nursery said these were low maintenance and that's exactly what I needed.

This girl was so not born, with a green thumb!

Lastly, here is a pic of my Hydrangea wreath on my front door.

I just love hydrangeas!

Oh and pay no attention to the yucky candle in the chiminea, I hadn't even noticed it until I posted this pic. It's time for some new candles, I do believe! :)

Still have lots to do but we are getting there!
