My "Back Porch"......

Thursday, June 11, 2009

Hi Friends, Greetings from my "back porch"!....I just love this little area of our home!....This is where we begin & end each day, so I am trying to make it very comfortable & very pretty!....As you can tell I just adore "farmhouse style", so I'm having a lovely time mixing antique pieces with my true patio furniture...... & throwing in lots of bright pink geraniums,.... soft, squishy pillows & some of my very favorite accessories!

Among my favorite treasures, is this "chalkware chicken"!!....I found it a few years ago when the girls & I spent a couple days at the Brimfield Antiques Show!.......I think he looks terribly appropriate strutting atop my old green table!

Classic "iron urns" are also pieces I love to keep an eye out for!....So versatile all year long, but so charming with flowers & flags throughout the summertime!


This year, I have let my "ivy topiary" go crazy!.....It is my "wild child", & like all unruly children I am allowing it to run & behave carelessly....without a care in the world!!!.... Also a peek at my "old green bench" & one of my "floral pillows"!!!

Thank you for stopping by & allowing me to take you on my little tour!.....I hope you too create the "back porch" of your dreams!...One that your family & friends will gravitate too & wish to spend time!....Nothing fancy....just a sweet & simple place to while away the summer!

That's just too pretty! I could move in there. I love how you stacked the mismatched furniture to make the hutch!

What a great place! I just love it when people make their porches like an extra room to their home. It looks so inviting!

Oh Heidi, what a kick butt porch! I love it; can I come live on it?? LOL I thought of you yesterday in Target... I was looking for flower seeds and saw a packet of FOXGLOVES!! It made me think of you and smile;)
