This folk art painting of the cat and bird has been hanging indoors for a few years. An outdoor spot seemed appropriate. Then one thing led to another. I found these wonderful rag rugs at a tag sale.... they are made of recycled denim ~ perfect for the porch. The little half moon table seemed to fit. I added a vintage crocheted doily, a fairy lamp and a bouquet of lilacs. Pull up a comfy wicker chair and, voila! ~ a Granny Porch!

spigot on the galvanized water can. Love the chippy metal tool box. And a Camel cigarette thermometer advertising sign!.... It's pretty rusty, but still a great find. The vintage rose-covered hand-hooked wool rug is lovely.

For the past two weeks we had unseasonably warm weather nearing 80* each day!
It was heavenly. Cherry blossoms and trillium!
With the help of one of my daughter's starving artist friends, I raked the entire yard from road to beach and then cast 25# of grass seed where it was appropriate.
Mother's day weekend it snowed for two days. The minor snow accumulation wasn't a problem except for our moods. Mother's Day picnics all had to be moved indoors.
Here's my oldest granddaughter having a tea party with
Sadie, our corgi.... underneath the dining table.
All in all, it was a lovely Mother's Day here and I hope it was for you as well.
