New Hope & A Red Rocker

After what has seemed like endless days of cloudy weather and a massive thunder & lightening storm that dropped 2 1/2" of rain on us overnight (and scared the crud out of us), we are having a glorious day. An a renewed hope for summer.

And look what my mom bought for me on her visit this past week. An antique rocking chair from my favorite store, Weathered and Worn (thank you, Mom!). I love that it matches the color of my front door. I bought the old Roberts milk crate that same day and decorated it with cute (and HEAVY after the weather last night) pilfered objects from elsewhere in my house. Anybody want to bet on how long it takes for my pansies to croak?


You still have until Saturday night to get in on the pinwheel pin giveaway!

Cute, cute arrangement on your porch. The rocker really is perfect. Good luck with your pansies. Remember to deadhead them every few days. :)

I miss you all lots.

Love from

That is such a nice rocker. You just need one more, so you and Tony had hang out rocking out on the porch! Haha, I crack myself up;)

You are so darn good at arranging things. And that red rocker ROCKS!!

And a big fat YES, I want to get together soon. What's your Thursday look like next week? We have to take my Mom to the airport, maybe we could get together after that?

I bet I could get my pansies to croak faster than yours.

Is that really your front porch? I'm coveting your porch and rocker.

See, now I would think of putting a lovely rocker on the porch, but I wouldn't think to set up such a cute side display. It looks fabulous together.

LOVE the red rocker! Your display next to it looks great also. I have a red one on my porch myself that we got in Louisiana. I am a firm beliver that every porch needs a rocker! :) Even better if it's a red one!

That rocker scene is too darn cute. Guess I shouldn't be surprised ... after all, it's YOU. :)
