Out on the Deck
Well my camera battery died and I am still at the shop, so am going to try to use phone photos. Got a couple of new/old items moved to the deck yesterday so here we go. Little bit warm out there.
First up is this very well made vintage porch swing. Don't you love the top of the back? It's really unusual. It's all decked out for the 4th of July with its blue and white pillow (with woven straw backing) and a vintage picnic basket in red and white, topped with blue enamelware coffee pot and cups. Scene wouldn't be complete without a flag, shown behind cute white sprinkling can.
Next we have an old frame with a sunburst on it all backed with screening. It sits on 2 legs and you have to use your imagination as for uses. One of my first thoughts was a twin bed headboard. It spans 42 inches which is a bit wider than the standard twin bed, but I am sure it could be adapted. Or could be a nice element for a back yard. Right now it is hard to imagine ever wanting to sit out in the yard or the porch again, but this too shall pass. Stay cool.
