My porch decorations came together easily. I used what I had on hand except for the seasonal flowers.

How pretty are those flowers. I forget the name but I know it starts with an L. I know that’s not much help but I threw the plant tag away. You guys will know what they are. One thing I know is the rabbits love them. I had a few pots last year and when we went on vacation I set the pots out in the yard so the rain could water them while we were gone. The rabbits ate the flowers and stems down to the dirt. I won’t do that again.

How To Make A Jimmy Buffett Inspired Wreath

I wasn’t sure what kind of wreath I was going to make and I first started out with the wood wreath I bought at Target last Fall. I planned to remove the wood pumpkins I hot glued to the wood and add seashells. Then I decided that would not be very colorful. Looking around the shop I spotted the Parrot Party license plate from Margaretville. Not sure how long I’ve had it or who bought it. It could have been a present from my sister or I could have bought it on vacation at some point.

Then I remembered a wood parrot I saved from a beat up sign years ago. The parrot was too colorful to throw away although it was pretty rough looking.

Summer porch decorating with rusty flower pots and rustic decor

The pots of Summer flowers came from Walmart on sale. They looked rough when I bought them but a couple of days of sunshine and a little water brought them back to life.

You guys might remember the little black stool I bought at my fav junk shop a few weeks ago. It’s the cutest and the rusty star chair is another of my best junk finds.
