~ Front Porch Living ~

Each evening you'll find me here on the front porch. The front porch is 68' long by 10' wide, that's a lot of decorating area. I'll share with you just a couple of those today.  Even though the temperatures in our area can top 100 the candles hold up well. I usually replace them every couple of years. The bakers rack I've had for years, it's held up well through all the outside elements.
Mr. P. brought in the old table one day and said, "I know you can do something with this thing". I knew right away with a fresh coat of white paint it would be perfect for the front porch.

I'm so glad to have had you join me on the front porch today.

Oh my what a fabulous porch. Mine is about 6 x 10, not enough room to do very much. I would love to have such a fabulous one to sit on and just enjoy. Love the bakers rack and the tableis wonderful. Thanks so much for linking to TTT. You asked about the prints that I get from the internet. Here is the link http://www.freespiritart.com/. I hope you find something you like. I have such a great time browsing for all kinds of pictures. Hugs, Marty

I love your bakers rack. I've been wanting one, but I don't know why. I have nowhere to put it at all! Your porch is so inviting.

Lynne, Your porch is so darling and I'm lovin' your baker's rack. I really need to redo mine. Wish I could put candles but it's in the sun from 2pm on so I have to be choosy about what I put on it. You're so lucky to have a shady spot for it. Pretty vignettes,
Babs

No wonder you are here every evening Lynne. It's such a pretty and initing spot. I spotted several unique bird cages on your baker's rack, and all of the flowers look beautiful. I can't believe those candles don't melt! Your porch must not get much sun. laurie

Love your baker's rack, Lynne! I have one I use outside as well, but yours is much nicer and a little longer.

Hi Girlfriend...

Wowzer...Girlfriend, I knew your front porch was big but had no idea that it was a whopping 68' long! That is sooo awesome! I always love how you decorate your porch...and I would love to sit out there with you...and just chat! The little table that Bill found is sooo cute and it really is perfect for that sitting area! I also love your baker's rack. I'm trying to find one for our veranda...maybe a yard sale find! Hehe!

Well dear friend, thank you for sharing your pretty porch with us today! What I would do for a big ol' porch like yours!!! So glad that you stopped by for a visit today...you always make my day, Darlin'! Take care...

Love ya,
Chari
