Story of blog names

The Vintage Modern Wife: Say My Name Link Up

LIVING with Porteous... that is the name of my blog.  I started writing just after I became a SAHM and needed somewhere to share things about my kids, family and of course a CREATIVE outlet... I love to Craft, and I love VINTAGE... and COUNTRY... 

I often think that I would like to come up with a different name, just because not everyone understands the Porteous...

 but ... it is just that.................... LIVING with Porteous!!

St Patrick's Day Wreath

I know that Valentine is just now over, but I found this super cute St Patricks Day wreath on Pinterest and I just HAVE to make it!!..
She has great instructions on how she made this, a wire coat hanger into a circle,  fabric strips 1" x 6" peices of scrap fabric.. and tie around until covered. I used just some wire that we had in the garage... got some great colored fabrics and I also spied these super cute crochet shamrocks on pinterest....

here is the pattern tutorial link.... Shamrocks

and here is what I came up with....

and here is my wreath..... thanks to Ashlee and Sawyer for helping to tie on the fabric strips :)

 WoooLAAA........... Finished and hung!! LUCKY :o)
hope you enjoy!! I know I loved making it!! more to come.....

Share time cont...

The other day I, well Sawyer and I shared a chick drawing that Ashlee had done... We were so proud of it...

well she has been at it again and wow has the quality of her drawings drastically improved...
She has always been talented ... but these are AMAZING...
