vintage porch...

I have been enjoying seeing everyone's beautifully fall decorated porches, decks and outdoor vignettes.  I must admit I have slacked off this year.  I did not put my Halloween tombstones out front and there is not even a pumpkin on my front steps (no big white beauties to be found around here).  I did fill my little old black cauldron with the lovely mums my bff Lisa gave me for my birthday though.  (Happy Birthday to you Lisa!)  I have been so busy with my booth makeover that I just let it slip this year.  Thank goodness I feathered the inside of this nest in the beginning of the month!  Last Saturday before the shop opened I took some photos of some wonderful pieces that would be just perfect for some outdoor fall decorating, heck they would look great inside too!  Let's take a peek...

I would love this old park bench in my backyard up under the big old tree.  But I don't think the boys would appreciate moving it every time they had to mow the lawn.  Are you looking for an old ladder...




 
As you can see there are some wonderful old trunks and tool boxes too...
Maybe you need a pop of color...


Or a place to sit...




Maybe something from our salvage shed...

So much vintage inspiration in one place ~ I promise no excuses next year!  I am joining Debra over at Common Ground today for Vintage Inspiration Friday (thanks Debra!).  Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you all enjoy your weekend!

I love everything! I'm on the lookout for crates, stools, chairs etc to use on my back porch for plant stands. I see so many things I like here! Could you be a dove and pack it up for me and drive it to FL? lol

I had a twig bench and two side chairs and a table in the back yard and I just know Bobby G. hated having to move them everytime he cut grass. Last year they started falling apart from the weather and I moved them. I am sure, secretly, he was very very glad. :) Love all the treasures you shared with us. ~
