Now, isn't THAT just an enticing title?
Rain or shine I knew I had to get
that porch done to show you.
I may, or may not have, said a few
to myself working out there in
My hair and I do NOT like humidity!
I did not buy a single thing for the porch-
well, except for the fern and the roses.
So, just to make you happy---
Here we go!
Walking up our front steps I have a huge
FERN & BIRDCAGE to the right.
Step up to the door and wipe your feet, kids!
The front door looks like this.
The ceiling above is a barrel ceiling
I have had this old hat for at least 10 years.
It is kind of SAD looking, isn't it?
I popped it up after tearing its old bow off.
I need a new bow!
This is taken through the screen.
To the left of the door and close to the steps
are some flowers and a wire topiary form
and a GARDEN sign.
Tired are you?
Well, you have two choices of seating here.
This old Eastlake wicker chair
is on a spring rocker.
It is very comfortable.
It was maroon and pretty sad looking
so I painted it white.
The fabric on the seat cushion is from a dress I wore in the early 90's.
I had a jacket that matched that I sent to a friend.
I still love the fabric!!!!
My friend is thinner than I am so the jacket
might fit her.
Two cherub supports hold a glass shelf
for holding a coffee cup or
glass of iced tea
and grocery store roses.
There is a chair for little rockers, too.
Not a girl?
Another cushion makes it boy ready!
My son found this rocker and stripped it down several years ago.
I just can't quite bear to paint it.
And here it is~
washed and dressed.
The bottom cushion is stuffed
with goose down.
The rug is a multi-colored tweed with
rose and green and blue in it.
A few flowers on each side of the swing.
Sometimes MyHero and I sit here and swing.
and sip coffee and watch the grandkids
ride their bikes down the drive.
We don't swing very fast anymore.
MyHero has sure slowed down from
he used to be.......
and that's all I'm gonna say about that!
