~Two Boats and a Winner~


 I’m doing bit of Spring nesting, at the lake, this week. 

Two Boats, by artist Sara Tetley, is a new accessory.  I wasn’t sure where I would use the print, when I purchased it.  I just knew it was perfect for our lake place.  For now, it hangs on the “window” in the dining area, of the condo.





A footed bowl with shells, sits on the round drop leaf table in the condo dining area. 


 Some of you have seen this wall of photos, in the entry of the condo, before.

The entryway is very narrow, at about three feet wide; difficult to photograph.

I took several photos of scenes around the lake and had them printed in black and white.  The mats and frames are from Michael’s.

The table was purchased at an antique mall, near Lebanon Missouri, last year.  I added a couple of pieces of driftwood, from the lake, a few shells and a stone jar, from Marshall’s.  I believe I bought the lantern at Schaefer House, Jefferson City, Missouri, about three years ago.




Have you begun your Spring nesting?

I was pleasantly overwhelmed by the response to my 3rd year blogiversary giveaway.  Thank you all for helping me celebrate.

Over 200 comments were left on A Dish Cabinet & Giveaway.  The giveaway closed Sunday evening.  Rue, of PB&J, is declared the recipient of the Target $50 Gift Card.  Congratulations Rue!  Your support of Back Porch Musings is very much appreciated.  Rue was one of the last few who commented on the post, which proves, never give up because you think you won’t stand a chance of winning when there are lots of participants.  Actually, Rue left two comments, but her name was entered once.



Stop by Marty’s for more tabletops, on Tuesday.
