My porch is rather small, so it can be a little cozy back there. I have a little table and a couple of chairs that my grandmother gave me about 6 or 7 years ago, as well as the canopied swing my son-in-law and daughter put up while they were visiting last month. I found a throw pillow at Target with a dragonfly motif and thought the swing was the perfect place for it!
When I found the pillow, I also came across these little dragonfly candles. I think they're so cute (and I love the color!)
I picked up the pitcher at an antique store in upstate New York several years ago... one of my treasures I rarely take out anymore!
The luncheon plates are part of a set that my great-grandfather gave to my great-grandmother some time after they were married. By my calculation, the set should be at least 75 - 80 years old. My grandmother currently has the rest of the set and has told me that I'm to inherit the set. I think of my great-grandmother and my grandmother every time I use the little luncheon plates. I love that.
The pressed glass bowl was given to me many, many years ago. It's another lovely piece that I rarely use anymore, though I really should!
The glasses are from Williams-Sonoma. The white napkins that the plates are resting on were purchased from an antique store many years ago. I've had the tablecloth for about 25 years - I have no idea where I got that!
