Not Perfect....but it will do for now.
I must say it seems pretty frivolous to be fluffing my porch when many here have lost
not only their porches but their homes.
The weather was very nice this afternoon so I got out a few new things I'd bought
for the front porch.
Alas, when I cleaned the porch the other day my outdoor rug literally
fell apart. I'd had it outside for three years.
It was looking worn on the side nearest the street where it got walked on the most.
I thought I'd turn it around and use the other side that was less worn..but when I did,
it just started splitting all over. It just came apart.
Now I'll be on the hunt for a new one.
My porch looks bare without it.
I added a new pillow to the mix of pillows on my settee.
It's from Pier 1, of course. I bought it recently on clearance.
A couple of lanterns from Pier 1 too.
Hmmm in these photos they look way bluer than the window paint but in person
they are very similar or at least I thought they were.
See it needs a rug again to pull the area together.
Or I'm thinking I need a wicker settee out here instead of the iron one.
I have too much iron going on...I know that...but it will have to do for now.
This is the same space with a rug in place.
Better with a rug I think.
Bought the lanterns just because of the color.
Franklin watched every move I made from the window.
The porch still needs a few more ferns.
I love the view from the porch into my house. It always looks so warm and inviting.
The ivy around the porch is doing really well this spring.
But, at least my front porch looks better with the addition of a few ferns.
But I still need to tweak it.
I have all summer.....
or at least that is what I tell myself.
