My point in all of this is how do you view your home when you return from vacation? To me everything looked so warm and inviting and I think I was seeing some things with a new "eye" and what the possibilities might be to improve. I had just finished staining my porch floor when we left, a major task and one I might share later after I recover. I had put a few things out on the porch the week before we left because I was having company from out of state and wanted things to at least be presentable.
This sweet potato vine is doing well and I love the new orb I picked up at the floral wholesaler a couple of weeks ago. The candle is a faux one that has an auto timer on it from QVC, Flameless Candles, I love to look out in the evening and see the candles flickering on the porch.
I had a box filled with old chipped Blue Willow that was sitting in the basement, I brought some of it up and filled a wicker planter with it then added a few flowers in some of the cups. Hope this qualifies for Susan's Metamorphosis Monday!
