Well my friends, it was another wonderful weather day, here in Southern IL.
I spent literally the entire day outside.
Last week, we were blessed with so many warm days, but because of work, I didn't get to enjoy them
Today, I made sure, I did.
I trimmed bushes, mowed, weeded, and tweaked a bit on my porch.
Now, before sharing a few photos, let me say…
I need to wash down my entire porch, which we will be doing this coming week when we get a power washer.
Also, I need to paint my porch rails.
So, if you notice dust, dirt, and chippy paint, let me ask again, please ignore.
I ask that a lot, huh? :)
Seems like, here lately, every time I share photos, I’m always asking you to ignore something in them. Heehee!!
On my porch, I want to change something's, but since I don't know what, plus I don't have any free money, I decided to do some free tweaking.
The main thing I did was cover my seat cushions with burlap sacks.
No sew. I just slipped the cushions inside and folded the flaps underneath.
Then I decided to use two of the printed sacks for back cushions on the couches.
Originally, I was going to sew some pillows with burlap, which I still may do, eventually.
But for now, I just slipped two pillows inside a large burlap sack and turned it sideways.
The pillows inside are made of blue and white ticking, so they still look pretty since they show a tiny bit through the opening.
You will also notice that I went ahead and put out my Jo-Ann's geraniums.
I know it is a little early, but the porch looks so bare without them.
I like the burlap seat cushions.
I think they go really good with the color of my siding and the fact I have a farmhouse style house.
The only thing I am unsure about is, the large sacks turned sideways for the back cushions.
My Mom says she likes them, and they are okay, but I think when I get time, I need to make actual pillows.
I think it would look better if the design was right side up.
And there you have it, how I spent my Sunday.
How was your weekend??
I hope fabulous!!
I also want to mention that I have plans for a giveaway, coming soon.
So, be sure to keep an eye out for it.
I have a fun twist on it, I have been considering.
Hummm, can’t decide.
Well, no matter how I decide to do it, there will be one coming hopefully sometime next week.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Until Next Time…
Take Care and Talk Soon!
