IF YOU STOP BY FOR ICE TEA...

This is the project I have been working on,


and hadn't as of yet, blogged about,

I needed "curtains" of some sort to block out the sun in the late afternoon.

It is unbearably hot at that time, and leaves us unable to sit out.

This didn't work for me because, it is one of my favorite "rooms".

I didn't want to spend a lot of money, (just don't have it to spend), and so I found myself at the Salvation Army. They had received a load of beautiful white sheets!!! Yeah, you know what I thought. I bought 6, full size sheets @ $1.75, each!!! Believe me, they DON'T look like sheets!

I also was blessed yesterday with this awesome glider at a local second hand store that I've talked about in a past post.

These are very hard to find, and I feel blessed to have gotten this one. It is in excellent shape, and I have wrapped it with a quilt and got it all cozy like with pillows.

Sophie and I spent some time out here last night relaxing and enjoying the summer weather.

If you stop by for ice tea, it will be cold and refreshing, served on this amazing porch, with a smile.

Hi, stopped by from the Nester's. What a great porch! I love the architecture. That was a great deal on those sheets. I bet the best part was not too much sewing involved. Off to check out more of your blog. Have a fabulous day!

Hi Lisa,

I sooo love your porch. It's magazine worthy! Definitely a place I'd love to hang out and drink iced tea. The deals you found were awesome, too. Gotta love some white sheets.

XO, Pam

If only I could make the drive up to you!! Your porch looks beautiful. I wish I could say this would work on our back porch but with the amount of wind we get they would be all over the place! I can see why this is a favorite place to sit!
