It's time to get ready for Spring. Let's start with a few ideas for the front porch.
1. Create a backdrop or focal point with weathered fences, bamboo or an old door.
2. An old window is repurposed to a shelf. Perfect for small plants.
3. Mix textures, rod iron, chippy painted items, rusty metal and feathery plants make for an eclectic look.
Changing a few items to reflect the different seasons doesn't have to be expensive. Visit thrift stores, flea markets and shop garage sales to find your items. The possibilities are endless.

Our favorite blog this month is Sweet Pea Home!
If you’re online and need a little vintage inspiration visit Shelley Price’s blog, Sweet Pea Home. Shelley
is an antique dealer from Winter Park, Florida. Her blog features her home and latest shop at Adjectives
Market in Altamonte, Florida and her trip to Marburger Farms Show in Texas where she sets up shop twice a year. We love her decorating style, dusty chalkboard walls with a fabulous industrial vibe.
Hi...check out my first cover. I took this photo at one of my favorite local places, Renninger's Twin Markets in Mt. Dora, Fl.
If you love antiques and vintage items then you have to visit Renningers. They have so much to see... several covered air conditioned warehouses full of individual vendors selling everything from jewelry, fine antiques to vintage wares.
Outside is the Street of Shops. The street is lined with sweet little cottages each decorated in a different style.
Stay tuned for more from this issue. If you would like a printed copy they are available on Magcloud.
