Our temperatures have finally dropped enough that in the evening you can sit outside and enjoy a slight breeze.
I think this has been the hottest Summer on record, and we have been cooped up in the air all season.
The porch swing is finally in use.
The swing is old and came from Walmart many years ago.
I have recovered it several times and last season made the ruffled drop cloth skirt to add to the bottom.
The pillow slipcovers I found at a garage sale and fell in love with all the vintage fabrics that made up the many quilt squares.
The table is also very old, I founds it at an auction over 15 years ago. I like that it folds up and becomes flat making it easy to store and move.
The ticking quilt was found on the clearance rack at Target two years ago.
The large wooden platter was a thrifted score and all that silver was purchased at a garage sale last year. Many of the pieces were produced in the 1800’s.
The table linen is vintage that’s been handed down in my family.
The two stools with the numbers on them are cheap Ikea stools that I made little slip covers for.
I forgot to mention my favorite feature of the swing is the back folds down and the swing makes into a bed.
Is the weather cooling off in your neck of the woods yet? I sure hope you are able to enjoy some time outside swinging…
