SUMMER PORCH

I thought I would share once again our summer living space.  A very large screened in area that has added much more living space to the whole house.
Each year I like to mix it up a little bit with creating different vignettes, basically using the same items or maybe just adding a little something new if that is the case.
You can see our summer living space posts from other years, here, and here.

Here is the dining table that is close to the door to the house.   This table displays one of the welcome signs "welcome to the lake"
Sometimes we eat here or sometimes we eat with our trays in front of the TV.
 This is actually a very antique refrigerator.  I love this piece.
My vintage suitcase filled with some of my favorite items.  My suitcase sat on the dining table last year.


 I picked up a couple of burlap bags in the last year.  Have I ever told you I LOVE burlap??
 This is my Figgy's wooden rocker for when she was a wee little girl, she is all grown  up now and has a baby of her own.


 A vintage dust pan made of copper and brass.  This belonged to my father-in-law.
 I love collecting little bottles from the shoreline.
Check out the post of the bottle dump on the shore if you have not seen that, too much darn fun!!!
That old rusty piece is the top of a coffee grinder.  Mr Nook found this treasure for me, it is actually stunning has a lot of detail under all that rust.
Once again we are enjoying our summer living space.  We spend nearly every moment on our porch.  
Do you have a porch or an outdoor living space that you can  enjoy??
Thanks for stopping by.
