The redecorating has started!!

Finally, at day three I am done....this is what I have come up with so far! I did not realize I had so many crocks and most of them were already on the porch so with a little reorganizing I think I like it.

This is where I started. Everything was Americana with black. It was a fun theme but the flag was across my kitchen windows and it did make my kitchen dark.
Again, this is how it is decorated today..very simple but I hope it looks welcoming since this is the enclosed porch that everyone steps into when they come to our home...unless you go to the front door.
This has been decorated since the spring of 2009 (I looked at my blog)..and I was ready to lighten up!
As of this morning, I am going to use it like a bakers rack. The silver you see is going to go all the way to the top shelf and it will be the back for the cabinet!! The "food" are candles!
Looks like a big change!

I love it! It looks a passage in years. A change in time of life. Funny how we become a bit more refined less is more and more becomes too much.
The crocks are pretty. Simple and clean.

I love it! You can see and appreciate each crock and bowl. Love the tin on the back of the bakers rack!

Hi Dianntha!...thank you so much for checking on me...I have been very busy with my shoppe and have been having personal issues at home to deal with but am planning on making a blog post this weekend and have been taking pics of my spring decor to share.

Your newly decorated porch looks very welcoming with all the Americana...good job!

Thanks again for taking the time to check on me, it's nice to know I am missed!
