Vintage Porch Style

Happy weekend! 

 I have been working decorating the porch for fall while the weather is warm. 
I am joining one of my favorite bloggers Debra from Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration Friday for a Vintage Porch Party all weekend long. 

This bench is one of my favorites, it is an old horse and buggy seat.

There has to be a little SPOOKY!

I love this cream colored burlap.
  I think it is time to make table runner, WITH RUFFLES!

I was able to get my new sewing machine.
It is still in the box, I was waiting to get the ruffler foot before I started my sewing projects.
  I am so excited to start working on some new SLIPCOVERS too.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!


  1. As you know, burlap is not really my thing but I gotta say that cream burlap is great. I have never seen that colour before and I really like it.

    The buggy seat...well that just brings me back to Little House nostalgia.

    It looks wonderful and enjoy that new sewing machine.
    I can't wait to pull mine out!

  2. Your porch is gorgeous. Love the bench, stunning. The pumpkins, straw bale and everything is just so pretty. A new sewing machine is such a treat. Can't wait to see what all you do. Good for you. Hugs, Marty

  3. Amazing porch!
    Amazing charm!
    Love the bulap in cream very cozy with and tattered aged old feeling.

    Thank you for inspiring your fall porch and its milky whites :)


  4. I love the white pumpkins and cream burlap Alaina! Your porch looks great and very festive. Loved your last post on all your halloween stuff in the home. My son would just love that!!

  5. The porch turned out great! I am working on mine this weekend. Wish I had some great items like yours.
    Love the white pumpkins. Here in south Louisiana we have to use fake pumpkins because with the heat and humiditiy I have had them rot. Not fun to clean up.
    Have a great weekend,

  6. There is not one thing that I do not love on your porch!!! The buggy seat bench, wowzer!!! The little skeleton sitting on the hay stack, the burlap bow, the hydrangeas, the white's all so very well put together and pretty.


  7. Great porch vignette, Alaina!! LOVE the old horse & carriage seat... beautiful! The little skeleton adds the perfect element for Halloween with the touch of humor that I love... cute!
    Happy weekend!

    It is so lovely that I may just have to hang out all day. If I get in the way, let me know...otherwise I'm going to sit here in this darling bench all day.
    Hugs to you sweet...

  13. It looks absolutely fabulous!! You did such a great job!
    I've been dying to get out my sewing machine and start creating but something's wrong with it so I guess I have to wait a little longer until it's fixed. I can't wait to see what you create!

    Thankyou for your best wishes.
    I had a lovely time.
    We invited two girls over for Thanksgiving dinner.
    They are broke college students and don't have a good family to go home to. It gave more purpose to our dinner.

    Our kitchen just keeps moving forward and we actually got alot done this weekend.


I enjoy each and every comment you leave. Thanks for stopping by.
