View from the porch

This week's theme, The Cottage Porch, is exciting to me as I do so love my front porch. When we had our home built, one of my requests was that we have a porch built on the front of the house. I am so happy to be able to share it with you. This Friday we will have loads of fun sharing ideas for your porch or outside sitting area.

Let's start with the view...

Now that you have seen the view, perhaps you would like a peek at the porch itself. Keep in mind, no picture of my house is complete without me sharing these beautiful adirondack chairs. These chairs along with the little red and white table were handcrafted by my dear dad. I will always cherish them.
