One of my dreams was to own a home with a wrap around porch. I love watching people as we drive by---seeing them on their porches----knitting, reading, drinking ice tea, chatting or even napping! Ok, so the porch adventure begins......this is what I have so far :) I will keep updating as the porch makes progress. Oh, and about the wrap around thing.....well.....I didn't get that one!! But that's ok!! It's big enough for some cozy furniture and a few tea parties here and there.
We started out with these black cafe chairs---they will get a splash of blue......
Oh honey....can you hang these gorgeous flower baskets for me? Thanks :)
Now let's see.....a swipe of cottage white.....some stain.....now I think we're almost there!!
I decided to paint our bench blue too! Just not with the cottage white. I think it looks marvelous!! I found some yummy throw pillows and a cute door mat at Target.
We have to stop for now....the baby needs some time to make some delicious mud pies.....word has it.....his Mom is a professional mud pie maker.....at least she was back in the 60's :)
More patio treasures.....some hints on what I'm sending Ele......some yummy spaghetti.........and delicous apple crumble when we return :)
and the pie begins..........
Have a lovely week!! Plant some flowers- walk in the grass - listen to some music that makes you want to dance......some Lauper perhaps....or Bowie would be great .......anything that makes you happy :)
If you say run, I'll run with you
If you say hide, we'll hide
Because my love for you
Would break my heart in two
If you should fall
Into my arms
And tremble like a flower....David Bowie
