Welcome Lantern...


There's a new addition to the front porch. 

It's a little lantern on a homemade wooden stand.

A very dear friend, Patti,  gave it to me. 


She purchased it at a yard sale years ago.

It was originally painted a dark cranberry color but I spray painted it black to match the shutters of our old New England Colonial house.

It's so pretty and is like a little welcome light at night.



Each season, I will decorate it differently.

Right now, it's festooned with faux fall leaves.

WOULD YOU LIKE A LANTERN AT YOUR HOUSE?

That lantern reminds me of a song called the old Lamplighter...remember that Susan. Enjoy it as I'm sure your friend did when she had it.

Love your lantern - and some people have them in their yards and use gas - we used to have one like that. Very nice.

Oh, I love that little lantern on your front porch. It looks so charming. I have a cream colored lantern that I put out by the fireplace, and I fill it with holiday goodies as well. What a nice gift from your friend, Susan.

love, ~Sheri
