Ready for Company

Remember I love bargains-the two rocking chairs I happened upon at a local shop [$50. ] for both, not each.  The black wicker [4 pcs total] another DOLLAR STORE bargain.  The just perfect Red Platter was a 'thank you' from a special friend here.  All the Milk Glass, the glasses, compote  pitcher on the table are all part of my collecting in southeast Texas over many years.  Do take note of the little primitive table between the rockers and the hand embroidered pillow cases just part of my vintage collection.  Perhaps the most outstanding treasure is the PRIMITIVE BENCH..at least 100 years old, from the farmhouse in Texas.
To contrast with the blue hydrangea you cannot miss the FIESTA..my collection is boh old and new Fiesta-I am not a snob about this.  If I love it, I love it - old, new or flawed.  An EBAY auction netted me the wonderful little silver coffee spoons. I love an excuse to use them.


  1. What a great deal you got on those chairs! Your porch looks so inviting! And I love all of your other photos of the porch as well. This looks like a great place to sit and enjoy, and your swing is neat, too!

    Happy Porch Party/First Day of Summer!

  2. Thank you so much for stopping by Fleming Street and Grammas Front Porch....I must add that Pop lives there too and we both enjoy our front porch. The house we purchased 4 yrs ago had NO PORCH. We added this and a deck onto the back of the house..we enjoy using it just as much.

  3. I love your porch! So many old time touches that it could be from another era.


This is intended to be an exchange of thoughts, recollections and ideas.
