Its about that time if you haven’t already started planning out what you were going to do this year to upgrade your front stoop. Its the first thing most people see and remember when looking at your house. Also why not have something original to give as a description to someone as a way to distinguish your home from all the others on the street. This year I decided during my weekly or sometimes daily treasure hunts (to my husband dismay) to find something affordable and unique to brighten up my front. It so happens that two vintage concrete lions appeared before me and just had to come home. Shortly, joining them were two cast iron urns, both pairs in need of some rehab but the elbow grease was well worth it. They make me smile every time I walk past them.
