Fresher

I got on with painting the porch yesterday afternoon, I've not painted the doors yet, but the worst of it is done. As I said it's pretty dark in there so white was replaced with white. Foolishly I forgot to take a before picture. 

The darkest area housed the flying ducks


Pretty uninspiring and not a particularly good colour for such a gloomy area. So I used the old embroidery hoop trick to brighten the place up as I had three left.


The shelf is the top of the outside bin shed, so it's really deep and can become a potential clutter spot. In fact, the things on top of it now are things that should have gone into the garage at the end of winter, instead they got as far as the porch then hid behind my big old sewing machine. The machine has moved into the spare room with the rest of my craft stuff, and the other things are now a fixture in the porch.


Better at reflecting what little light there is, and add a bit more texture at the same time. My mum gave me the green vase, and I wasn't sure about it but it's so bright I like it here.

  1. Wow that was quick and looking really good too. I like your little collection especially that large glass jar - I like the shape and the vase too - I could use that to hold my Sweet Peas that have just come into flower at long last!

    1. It made sense to keep them there, especially as it's now nearly the Autumn and candles may feature in the main part of the house, they were clearly never going to make it to the storage box in the garage!

  2. I love the spot of bright colour the green vase gives.

    God bless.

    1. The green vase is what makes it work (if indeed that's the word) I think, just a nice shot of bright colour.

  3. I loved your idea of using embroidery hoops for art work, inspirational.

    1. They're really convenient, lots easier than putting fabric into frames, very lightweight too for those of us a bit slapdash with hammering in nails!

  4. A fresh coat of paint can do wonders, I love the hoops they give a real pop

    1. Thanks. We need a new roof on the porch so I don't want to do anything too radical in there before that time, but in my world white paint is king!

    1. Thanks, it's not much but it's just enough to shake things up a bit.
