Eclectic, quirky, and sometimes edgy…this is how things look from my front porch.

I Painted the Fireplace Area...FINALLY

This cost nothing except the cost of the blue candles in the hurricane lamps.  I swiped them from my mother's garage.  The paint was in the basement.  Here's how it looked when I lit the lamps.  I had originally intended to paint them white, too, but I love the contrast against the white background.

What a great idea. Love it!

That is really charming. Love the softness of the light the lanterns give off. Latane

Thank you Nancy and Latane for your kind comments. It took me a little while to get up the gumption to do it. I was afraid I'd be stuck if it didn't look right.
