Life in Old South Central Alabama

My photo
South of Birmingham, Alabama, United States
I am an antique trader in central Alabama....I love old houses... My log home was built in 1817 by my ancestors Benjamin and Hannah Harless Wilson .............. Outside the house are herb gardens and lots of pass-along plants................ No one in Alabama is in a hurry about anything......... Visitors think that the garden needs weeding and the furniture needs polishing....I am a direct descendant of Joseph Towne, whose two sisters Rebecca Towne Nurse and Mary Towne Easty were hanged in Salem, Massachusetts, in 1692 as witches. I am also a direct descendant of Pocahontas and husband John Rolfe.

My Yellow Porch for Fall : No Apologies for too much yellow

It's a sunny day in Alabama, so all the mustards and yellows are having a bright time of it showing up on the front porch. 

I painted the wicker settee I bought from the estate of my college history professor Mr. Triplett. He would like that. I also painted the front door yellow. You can see the mustard table behind the shoe stand.

The burlap pillows are from Pottery Barn and are a gift from my sister who lives in Fairhope. The swing is a very light yellow but appears whitish in the sun. 

The door wreath is made from old matress springs. I wove the fall colors in between. 

The Welcome sign is also yellow. 

My grandmother's little WW2 table sits in the far corner of the porch.
