I've been pondering the veranda. I needed something to inspire the decor for it. While cruising various blogs I read that a floor cloth (rug) can cozy up an outdoor space. So I had my eyes open while I was out and about and yahoo! ...
Now this doesn't look like much but it 'spoke' to me.
The veranda is an outside room with screens, not glass. The floor is just as you see it, worn rust coloured paint with some 'oops' from various projects that weren't to be done in the house. That Rooster of mine!!! It is our main entrance and I need to find ways to welcome visitors and discourage my farmer from using it as a storage/work room.
This great deal came with a 5' x 7' rug, a long runner, 20" x 54" and this small mat 18" x 30". All for the great price of $38 which included the taxes. There are a lot of colours in the stripes and dark is probably more practical. So now I have a place to start.
I went to the thrift shop and got a few good things including 2 pillows, and an aqua pail.
I also got a few articles of clothing as I'm also cruising blogland for style inspiration. I am NOT ready for any big reveal in that particular department.
BUT...This rolling cart was going to fit in the car with all my other stuff somehow. Mixed media supplies get ready to be rolled! YES!!!
