The end of front porch 2011...

I have not shown you my summer porch for this year, well..I only started my blog a little over two weeks ago and since I am having new floors put down this week and had to show you "What is lurking behind my shower curtain" last week...Hope ya'll think this is a little bit prettier. : )

One of the things I really love about my front porch is the brick, it is just so pretty and easy to keep clean.

This is the cute tea cart I found earlier this summer at Home Goods.  I added some lanterns, cute birds and a copper watering can with red sunflowers on top.

The cart is sitting on a pretty rug - that I did not get a good picture of - along with a welcome slate, large lantern, plant and a vase to help balance.  The rockers need a new coat of paint!

Here is a picture standing in the yard showing both rockers and the cart. I think it looks welcoming. The Mister and I sit out here often, just talking and watching the neighbor's kids play.

Here's a view looking down to the other end of the porch.  The flower pot at the end was filled with beautiful, overflowing red flowers.  Then I forgot to water for two days, they where no match for this Georgia heat.  I had replace them.

They are filling in nicely, I only bought four plants since I knew they would not be in there for long.

Lastly here is the front door with a grapevine wreath with white flowers.  I should of gotten a better picture of the front door. There is sidelights on both sides, it was one of many splurges when we had the house built.

Hope you enjoyed the tour of my front porch.  If you are  in the neighborhood do stop by and we can chat and sip some ice cold sweet tea.

I am joining Kim for WOW and a day late for Marty's TTT and Debbiedoos Newbie Party.

Your porch is beautiful! Love the brick floors, and the tea cart is so pretty! It looks like such an inviting spot to sit a spell. Thanks for sharing.

I'm hosting my monthly Before Blogging Throwback Thursdays party, and would love for you to come show off something you bought, did, or created Before Blogging, and since you're a brand new blogger pretty much anything would qualify. Can't wait to see what you bring to the party.

Your home is so beautiful and I love the area you have created in your front garden.

Hope you have a lovely weekend in your gorgeous home!

Best wishes,


Spending time on the porch is one of my favorite summer things.
