Sassy and Shabby

For the love of all things Vintage

SPRING has FINALLY SPRUNG which means we spend lotsa time outdoors! I have a deck BUT the front porch/yard seems to be the gathering spot when friends and fam are over....THIS is how it was styled fall last year....

It's cozy and cute BUT the scale of the furniture is too large for this space....SO these will be for sale at the flea market next weekend....

AFTER a year in the elements the front mat had seen better days (it held up incredibly well considering the duct tape border trim was from #dollartree and the mat was a remnant that came with the house)

HOLLA the mat's freshened up and ready for the season

 I gathered things I had lying around to create a vignette (the mermaid bucket is new and was posted last week on my THRIFTY TUESDAY finds - target $1.50, the packaged item is the cute lil garden flag you'll see below - that was $3.00 and the planter I found on the curb - and the pink bottom is intentional {my daughter asked if I only meant to paint it} once I get some pink petunias in the top it will all tie together!!)

Ta-da!! After a good scrubbing and sweeping and getting the pieces's my new for the season  front stoop (April Showers brings may flowers umbrella door hanging)

And NOW that's it's May - the Cinco de Mayo wreath hit the front door....

I am the girl who HATED pink....looks like I've had a change of heart!!! I've had a few neighbors comment on the ever-changing decor (in a positive way...IN FACT one person said "your house looks happy"....I LOVED that!!). Live is short - LIVE IN COLOR!!!

OMG, it's adorable, before I read that your neighbors commented, I was thinking, I bet he neighbors love this! You have so inspired me, after I get through the Flea I have got to give my front a sprucing!
