Today I decided to participate in a porch party, hosted over on Rose Colored Glasses. It is her birthday today and she has set out some lovely treats...I wish I could really be there to have a sip of her pink lemonade and lemon cupcakes. But, I'll have to do with showing you our display. (Sorry, no treats are involved.) The picture above is of our porch from our last house. I loved sitting on this porch with a cool drink, my journal or magazine, and relaxing. The pink peonies we grew in the side yard and they were also a favorite of mine. Now we live in a wooded area and sun is hard to come by. But, we've planted peonies again and hopefully someday, we will have blooms to enjoy!
The white porch swing we had my Father in Law drag out of the old barn (he has so much stuff in there) and I painted it white while my dear hubby added new chains. I made the swing pillows on my Mom's old Singer sewing machine. When we moved I left the pillows with the swing and the new owner because I felt they needed to stay with the house. We don't have a porch at our new house, so what was I going to do with them?
This was the porch heading into fall....but it was still a warm time of year and a great time to come outside to enjoy it. We often had candles burning at night with snacks and a little bit o'wine.
Hope you enjoyed our porch view as much as we did. Thanks for letting us share with you today!
