Front Porch

Hello - Thanks for stopping by for a tour of my front porch.

Yesterday I was out playing on the front porch. I had started painting my rockers last week, and hope to finish in the next day or two. 

The rockers are looking great - all fresh and clean and ready to take on the Georgia heat another year. The inital pillows are my easy no sew pillows from last fall and I picked up the red ones for contrast at Kohls. The little tea cart was a find from HG's last year. In the copper watering can some faux flowers that match my new wreath.

The wreath was a bargin at Michael's last week - 40% off then I had a 25% off coupon - so less the $20 and it was mine.  The only problem with it is the birds seem to think the berries are real!

Heres a close up on the berries along with the garden tools and gloves on the other side. The local Michaels here has such a great floral designer and the sames are so good that I normally don't design my own stuff any more.

Here's another view of the wreath and under it a cute little box I planted some flower in.

Here's  a view looking down the other end of the porch.  I have a large planter with some "thriller, spiller & filler".  

I am not sure why I chose "silver dust" but am going to be transplanting that to the yard and pick up something different for this pot.

Well, I hope you enjoyed seeing my freshed up front porch.  Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit.


I will be joining these fun parties:
OHP with Sherry
Cowgirl UP with Linsey

You have such a beautiful porch. I love a brick floor anyway, and your accessories are wonderful. I love that wreath.

Your porch looks great, Toni! I love rockers on a porch. Your set-up looks so inviting and I could see sitting there, rocking and sipping some lemonade.
