Vintage Front Porch Accessories

We have exciting news at our house. . .

There is a flurry of activity on our front porch.

With so much happening out there,

I decided that I should make our new guests feel welcome.

Vintage Watering Can @ DaisyMaeBelle

I brought out the vintage watering can,

and propped it up on my Miss Mustard Seed Milk painted bench.

Vintage Ironing Board @ DaisyMaeBelle

I dragged out my vintage child’s ironing board for a side table.

And, what says welcome better than an old quilt over the back of the wicker rocker?

Satchel Paige quote pillow @ DaisyMaeBelle

I pulled out the pillow that I made several months back with my favorite “porch” saying.

“Sometimes I sits and thinks,

And, sometimes I just sits.”

-Satchel Paige

Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint Bench @ DaisyMaeBelle

I brought out my new terrarium to add some more green to the space.

 I love the excitement of new life. . .

The energy that it brings. . .

The joy that it creates. . .

Even if it is just baby birds!

Mama has had her babies!

Let the chirping begin!

Zuzu on the Front Porch @ DaisyMaeBelle

Zuzu doesn’t seem to share the same enthusiasm that the rest of the family has.

I wonder if she even knows that the babies are here?!

Life to the full,

  4. Melissa, I had a little ironing board exactly like that when I was a child (more than 50 years ago), and a little plug-in iron that would barely heat up. I can’t believe I thought it was FUN to play that I was ironing! Thanks for sparking that memory.

  5. Your porch is so welcoming and I love the quote on your pillow.

  6. Great porch, Melissa! It looks like a great place to sit and just think. Love the wicker chair and your accessories surrounding it.
