front porch sittin...


I spent Sunday evening rocking on my front porch with my very tired tootsies resting on the ottoman. It was such a peaceful retreat after the day’s festivities. The weather was picture perfect for my grandson’s second birthday party…


but once everyone had gone home…


it was time to relax…


I finished my front porch just in time…


Wish you could feel the breeze…


And hear the birds…


mmm…sweet bliss.

Blessings,

Patty

Sounds good to me! There is a house down the street I am in LOVE with. I keep telling my husband I am going to go ring the bell and ask them if they want to sell. hehe

It is the cutest blue cottage with huge trees with ivy growing up the 2 main trees in the front yard...1 with a swing. The front porch is the length of the whole house. I will go drive by and take a pic and email it to you. We are 2 peas in a pod. We enjoy all the same things. You are just in CA. ;)

What a pretty front porch!! And, it looks so comfy, too. You can be sure to add it to that Porch party that is coming up in June. I am trying to work on MY porch, too, but the wind has been blowing so hard out here in West Texas that I am having a hard time.
I LOVE your rockers!!

Look at that porch - WOW! I absolutely LOVE it! Can I come and hang out there with you sometime...? It looks so serene... I love the cushions and I saw the adorable flag from your previous post...precious!! You did an outstanding job - I hope you have many, many happy, peaceful hours out there enjoying God's goodness!
