This morning, my bestie friend, Jane, and I set out to the sweet old country town of Tallapoosa for their annual city wide yard sale. Let me tell you how country this place is! Their 'claim to fame' is a Possum Drop on New Year's Eve. Seriously! But don't let that fool ya. The town is full of charming and historic homes. So my front porch jealousy grew and grew while we walked the streets hunting junk treasures. Wanna tag along?
Wicker, iron, flowers, beauty and little shrubs...yes I covet this porch.
(You can click on all the photos for a closer look!)
Sorry the photo is a tad dark, but isn't she a beauty!? Oh, what
junk decor I could do to this porch.
Even a small porch would do! Couldn't you see me out here? Sipping coffee or sweet tea. Plus this one is already fully decorated just for me!
Or maybe a porch of a house on the historical registry. I am a Southern Belle, ya know!
Scarlett O'Hara! I think I'm having a porch fancy today. Be still my heart.
Whew! Now this is more my size. Isn't this one adorable with it's red door?
Then I spotted the Belle of the Ball! A desire rose up in me and I became flush PEA GREEN with envy.
You HAVE to click on the photo to see all the fabulous items on this porch!
I squealed with utter DELIGHT!
An old church pew with pillows under what appears to be an old iron fence hung upside down over the window. A lamp, plants, wicker chair, candles, a huge tassel and yes a swing!
If I go missing, you know where to look for me. In a town nicknamed 'Possum Snout' on this front porch sipping hot coffee on a cool autumn morn.
Until then, I will be bringing you some pretty thrifty finds from today's adventure in upcoming posts.
I've already been
sniffing busy with the spray paint!
