Front Porch Party!!

Welcome to the Front Porch Party! Please visit Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses to see many more bloggers showing their own wonderful front porches, or their dream porches.

The porch below is not my porch. My porch is not quite ready for pictures. I found this great porch on BHG.com. I love the vintage rusty candelier, the chippy painted table and the metal chairs. It just looks so inviting to me.

Oh Penny that porch is just beautiful. I could picture myself drinking a nice cup of coffee with some fresh baked scones and homemade cream like my sister-in-law makes us. She's from England.
Hugs to you,

That's a fabulous porch you picked. I would love a porch like that too. We don't have porches in England. We don't have yards either...we have gardens and ivy and moss and roses!

Sandi McBride said...

Who ever it belongs to, thats one humdinger of a porch! I could sure sit there with a glass of tea and look over at the flower beds and show off my (no)knowledge of the flora and fauna just beyond that lovely low railing!
hugs
Sandi

Marie said...

PS - I love your mosaic work. It's gorgeous!

Julie said...

bj said...

I love this porch. I wanted to post my humble little porch but the wind has been up to 50 mph for the entire week and everything out in my yard and garden looks just pitiful....
I NEED a break !!!!!!!!!!!!!

shirl said...

What a cute porch, I love that table, I have one just like it! Mine is stained dark wood color, I love how yours is painted. I might have to do that with mine. When I inherited it my hubby's Great Aunt had painted it with gray porch & deck enamel.
Blessings, Shirl

That porch is great. It reminds me of a seaside cottage.

shirl said...

Hi Penny, I had to stop back by to say hello and thank you for stopping by at my porch party. At lunch today I was reading a copy of Romantic Country and there you were. I love the colors of cotton candy too and try to decorate with it as often as I can! As a child I just loved to watch cotton candy being made, and every now and then I have to buy my grandsons some just to have a taste! LOL Anyway it was a beautiful article and your mosiacs shown are just stunning!

Blessings, Shirl
