My favorite things are our vintage metal chairs, and the table made from a 1906 White sewing machine. Many thanks to MWHP (My Wonderful Hubby Phil) for wrangling that machine back home from the flea market I found it at. And also removing the rust and many, many (did I say many?) coats of red paint on the chairs!
The tabletop is a cabinet door that went through multiple coats of paint and changes of mind (first white, then yellow, then stenciled). And I was psyched to find placemats that closely match the stencil to make into pillows!
 
What better than a tablecloth (that matches my placemat pillows) now repurposed for a rocking chair cushion?
I also love the 10lb sugar bag that I made into a pillow. 
I got into a stenciling craze, and got the mailbox prettied up with the same stencil as the tabletop.
My junkcatcher which originally started out as a suncatcher, but I couldnt stop adding miscellaneous pieces to it!

But when I do get a moment to sit, I really like spending time on our front porch!
