2nd Time Around: Accessories for the porch

Welcome to 2nd Time Around. Here’s where you can show off your second hand treasures-stuff from garage sales, estate sales, flea markets, thrift stores, estate sales etc. Just create a post and link the name of the post to Mr. Linky below.

I’m always on the lookout for second hand items that I can use to decorate my screened porch. This little set of three flower pots and wire stand was my daughter’s. She had a yard sale when they sold their first home, and I grabbed this up! It now has a new home on a bench on the back porch.July 2008 316

This little animal print birdhouse was another one of my daughter’s rejects. In her first home, they had a room that she decorated with an animal print theme. I found this bird house for her at a garage sale quite a few years ago. When they sold that home, she decided to sell all the animal print accessories. So, I bought the birdhouse from her. Guess you can say that I bought this twice! And for a cheap price both times I might add!

Hello, those are darling porch accessories! I love the first one, too bad it's still stormy weather here. Can't get much cleaning in our patio done...

I wonder what wild creatures you are going to lure into wild bird house! Renters can get rowdy...
I would make sure I get a security deposit! LOL

Hi Diane...

Happy "2nd Time Around Tuesday"!!!

Girl, I just love your cute little plant stand...and are those little miniture roses growing in those pots? So pretty!!! I can tell just by looking at this photo that your back porch is charming! I see a cute little sunflower plaque peeking out from behind your bench too!!! Oooh...and I love your animal print birdhouse...it's very unique and I like that!!! I just giggled when you wrote about buying back these things from your daughter...hehe! You know, only a mama would do that!!!

Well my friend, just want to say thank you once again for hosting this fabulously fun event! I sure have had fun with it!!!

Warmest wishes,
Chari

What great porch finds Diane! No "Mr.Linky" showing up but I've posted my 2nd time around post :-)

Smilingsal said...

I guess you'd better stick close to that daughter!

Darlene - Our Creative Life said...

Hi Diane,
You should make this a linky party where people can add a link to show off their 2nd time around treasures.

pammiejo said...

I, too, am not getting Mr. Linky to sign-up on but I have posted my 2nd Time Around. I enjoyed your pics of your patio. I just love the outdoors and plants and GREEN! PAM

bj said...

Well, I came over to visit all the others and...no Mr. Linky. Bummer. well, I've noticed he is not too reliable but maybe he will come back. So sorry.....

Hi Diane, this is the 3rd time I came to visit. Lol. I couldn't get your comment thingy to come up or Mr. Linky either. Yay! all is well now. I love your plant holder and the bird house too. Keep your eye out for your dtr's. yard sales. Smiling here.

I loved your pink post too. Catfish Row Art Park is an interesting place. The pink is fun. I didn't get to hardly anyone on Sat. We were tied up with some Senior Games all weekend. Fun but time consuming.

Thanks for hosting 2nd Time Around Tuesdays, I enjoy doing it. Have a happy day.

Hugs...Jeanne

Your thrifty finds for the patio are really about "keeping it in the family"!

I have always, all my life, yearned for a screened-in porch. I have a fairly close approximation now with my dining room!

Great blog! I added you to my blogroll and hope that you will check mine out and consider doing the same. :)

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

Thanks for the nice "welcome back" Diane! I had such a nice time in Colorado visiting my son. D-I-L and baby grandson. The time went by so quickly!

It as nice to catch up with you tonight!

I love the planter and birdhouse you bought from your daughter!

jeanne said...

Hi Diane, I just popped over to tell you thanks for your comment on today's post. I laughed at what you said. I think I am the only one in the world who thought they were worth something. LOL. Strikers sometimes go for big prices as the collectors are willing to find something different. I haven't tried to sell them for years. I might try Ebay. who knows. I had a striker customer when I sold antiques that carried matches with her. She would strike the match and if it didn't light up she wouldn't buy the striker. What a hoot. Strikers are uncommon to find these days.

Have a good day.

Hugs...Jeanne
