Playing Around with Vintage Items—July 2011

Pretty as a picture. My vintage, plaid-painted, Kennedy porch rocker, and three-year old pink geranium, wintered-over in the attic. Front porch, July 2011. Click to enlarge. This might be a good photo for a book cover. The natural, shaded area at the top is a great place for white type to overlay the Salmon clapboards. The floor is a great place for an author line. I could also see it as outside Miss Kitty's home in Dodge City, of Gunsmoke fame, with its Wild West wooden sidewalks and porches, lol.

And Now a Musical Interlude. Where is our Champagne Lady?

Not exactly a video, lol, but a nice recording of J.S. Bach's Brandenburg Concerto #1. I love all six of these works, and I've stood under Berlin's Brandenburg Gate, pictured below. Photo via Google Images, from a German travel site, watermark/website on image.


  1. This picture reads 'pleasant and peaceful' to me. Love it. ;)

  2. that's what I was going for. no boats rocking at that very second, lol.

  3. I wonder if this is odd to say...again about your photo... when I look at it "I can feel the air, almost breath it in..."

  4. Love the vignette of your front porch. A nice big Arnold Palmer (iced tea and lemonade) would go perfectly with this scene!
