fall blooms on the sun porch and a bench

Salutations! How about a bouquet of bright pink blooms and an heirloom bench for a shot of shabby vintage style on the sun porch? It’s a rustic pine bench hand-built by my great grandpa Tipton; how funny that here she is all these years later adding a dose of charm to our sun porch for fall.

Cottage Fix - bright pink bloomsI’m not sure what these bright pink daisy shaped blooms are, but I’m feeling quite lucky to have a little something blooming in the back garden — not much in bloom around town that I’ve seen. They make their entrance in late summer and stick around through early fall and spread easily. They’re always a nice little treat after the garden is on its way out. And that color, oh yeah, I’ll take a bouquet of hot pink happy please!

These have found a place all over the cottage softening things up and adding a touch of cozy comfort. And ivory is so easy to bring in to just about any color pallet. So I chucked this little sweetie on the wicker to make a rather summery chair feel a little more like fall.

My honey keeps joking with me that it looks like we’ve been robbed on the sun porch. It was getting dreadfully bare at one point — Is that an invitation to go shopping dear? All jokes aside, I have something in the works that involves wrought iron and matelassé and I think the bench is also really helping. Especially since I filled every square inch with chachkies!

    That bench looks great there, Sally. But seriously, every time I see your floor and painted brick wall, I die a little 😉 My sunporch would have those in my dreams….
