Thank you for reading my first decorating blog post!
I am starting it off by sharing our favorite room in the house, our covered porch. This is where all of our friends and family enter our home.
We know if someone rings the door bell they don’t visit us often. When we hear the iron clank of the knocker we know we have company.
They enter this gate on the side of the garage.
Which leads to our favorite spot, our covered porch.
My mother and father-in-law build this home in 1968. We purchased it 11 years ago. My father-in-law and a few friends added this porch on many years ago. We love the cedar ceiling and beams! They did a great job.
This fern fabric is one of my all time favorites. I plan to add some warmth for the cooler months.
I found that stump just as you see it! Amazing and free!
We love this extra living space.
Always search your yard for color and texture. Adding natural elements makes your home feel comfortable and inviting.
My son painted this bird house many years ago. I love having personal items mixed into my decor.
I cook out here all year-long and having this cook station has worked perfectly.
The plan for adding in fall flowers is on hold until it gets cooler here in the south. But until then I used some branches from the yard and herb garden to keep it lively. For now rosemary, mint and branch cuttings work perfectly. It is really what I use most of the time.
This bench came from my husbands grandparents home. It sat on their front porch for as long as he could remember. I sanded it a bit and sat it here temporally, but it has been so functional here I decided to leave it for a while.
Thank you for visiting my blog. I look forward to this new journey.
