a front porch cupboard.....

first off ........... when mr. prairie blue arrived home from work yesterday .................... his first words ...... i think the wagon needs sides on it ...................... i was thrilled .................. i would love sides, but was so excited just to have a bed on it, wasn't going to rock the boat .............. so from 3:30 ~ 7:30 with temps dropping and rain falling ................. it now has sides ....Yay!........will post pics later when i get the area a little more presentable ...................... and planted .........!
these are a couple of pics at different times of our front porch ........................ i got this make~do cupboard from Kadin's Creek on the "Country Neighbors Tour" (look her up on facebook!)
i love old milk bottles .......... never have known quite what to do with a gazillion collections ........ so this one landed here ...................... along with my mom's old grapevine tree that we made probably 25~30 yrs. ago ........................... my old blue washer ....................  and two old hickory rockers that i got for a song at an auction 10 yrs. ago ........................ the rockers were off and a few minor repairs with alot of wood glue and clamps and they have withstood it all .............................. because i don't like perfect!
......................................................... i am blessed !

I love your porch -- I'd definitely love to sit out there and chat with a nice, cold glass of iced tea.... just perfect! :)

Looking forward to seeing the wagon all done up. The grapevine tree is great... and the cupboard with the milk bottles looks fantastic! Wishing you many happy days spent out there on your great porch....
