"Front Porch Bench"

(left click on photo to see it larger)
An arrangement set on the porch bench (how I love how this
old church pew has aged in 50 years) for people to
see as they come to the door, be they dragons, dames,
delivery men or even doggies . Not many people
do stop by but this is an eye catcher
that starts light hearted conversations.
The pineapple I had last week and can't seem
to toss the tops
til they've adorned some spot for
awhile, the bottle is
part of a small green glass collection
upon top of a
filing cabinet and takes on
a new life out on
the porch.
The heart made of stone
surely might break if it falls
to pieces .....
I post such things hoping you too,
will find enjoyment of this sort
on your own front porch.

You have always come up with such good compositions from ordinary objects. I think that using what you have around the house makes you use your imagination brain cells go into high gear. I know when I couldn't get out to a store to buy new fabric for a project that I always came up with a more creative project using what I already had in the house. Necessity is the mother of invention.

Sit upon this old bench awhile
Share a story, a laugh or two
And when it's time for you to depart
Toss the pineapple but leave the heart

reference that makes me blush...
