POTTERY BARN ON THE PORCH!

Saturday, April 2, 2011


We have a bit of Pottery Barn on the porch!
On the Screen Porch Remodel Ellie-Mae and I promised to share how we were going to decorate this screen porch table.



Just in case you are wondering, Ellie-Mae wants you to know that the water spots under the chairs (indicated with white arrows) are not her "tee-tee."  She wants you to know that after rinsing these chairs with the hose they drip water for hours before they finally dry.  Ok, Ellie's happy now so I can get back to the post. :)

The sweet Pottery Barn flowers that I shared with you earlier have added a sweet Spring touch to our guest bath.  Truth is they were such a great deal at $3.99 each, I couldn't leave with just one...






Remember the home decor store Bombay Company?
I purchased this terrarium from Bombay many years ago and I just love it.  Didn't you LOVE the Bombay store...I sure did and wish they were still around!






These sweet little flowers are now adding the perfect spring touch to the porch!
Love hearing your sweet comments!
Blessings,

  1. That is so lovely!
    It looks like your puppy decided to water it before it was ready! LOL! (Look under the top chair on the right)! LOL! ...and the guilty look! I haven't laughed this hard in a looooong time!

    Happy weekend!

  5. So funny Andie! Actually, it takes the chairs a while to dry, they continue to drip water all day after washing! Ellie-Mae says, "I promise, I didn't do it!"

  10. Hi Cindy,
    Love the slate tiles on your porch....very pretty.
    We have a tile look, but it is spray painted on,
    but we love it, it has been about 7 yrs now, and it still looks great, accept that is in need of cleaning right now too. Glad we didn't do it the week before last since we had a ton of blowing rain this week, and it would have been a mess all over again, so hopefully soon.

    Love your terrarium, very neat! and you did a great job of decorating it as well.

    Hope you have a great weekend sweetie,
    blessings, Nellie

  41. Hi Cindy,
    thanks for coming by hon.
    My chirps came from Michaels crafts, I bought the Mama and the baby was a gift from my friend Becky, who did the chirp party. Someone else said they got theirs at Target! Haven't seen any but haven't been there right recently either.

    Hope you have a great day hon,
    Nellie

  50. Hi Cindy,
    Thanks for coming visiting today, and your sweet comments hon. I was thinking the same thing about the expense of the letter as well. I got to thinking and am wondering if it was a mistake and someone else was suppose to get a certified letter, and they mixed them up!!
    Even the wording of the letter cracks me up tho!!
    This person definitely does not have the gift of
    encouragement that is for sure!! lol

    You have a great week too hon.
    Blessings, Nellie

  52. Cindy, I loved Bombay and miss it so much. Some of my favorite things came from there. I can't believe it's gone. Love your terrarium, and I love your cute little dog. Ellie Mae is precious. Porch looks great!

  53. Why Cindy we would never accuse your little dog of that. lol Love the terrarium filled with your cute flower pots. I have seen those at PB. Great screened porch. I think you will love the chalk paint. You have to wax it after you paint and before you sand and then wax again. I had one lady say she didn't care for it much because it scratched off easily. I think not with the wax.

  69. Ellie-Mae is such a doll! How sweet of her to introduce your post. I definitely remember the Bombay Company. I used to buy so much from that chain. I think they set the stage for the Pottery Barn craze. ;)
