Shutter Weather

Our windy, cold, I'd-rather-be-inside-sewing spring weather finally turned balmy, just in time for us to enjoy Memorial Day weekend!

I've been yearning for months to finish painting my $1 ReStore shutters, add hinges and finally set them outside.  Patience is not my strong point--enthusiasm is!

They are both apple-green now and I discovered a pair of hinges that will work for them. Not the clover-leaf hinges I'm dreaming of (I'll still be on the lookout)...still, the shutters will be usable as a screen until my perfect vintage hardware appears.
I can hardly wait to see them nestled behind the wicker chairs, terra cotta bunnies and blooming containers on our front porch!
