~White Wednesday # 58~


The weather here has been just amazing lately and I've been outside as much as possible. Today I thought I'd share some photos of the architecture I've added to my front porch. Inside or out all these old architectural elements are perfect. I think they add loads of character and charm, don't you? Enjoy! xoxo K.

  2. I just loooove your porch! The architectural elements are wonderful. I really like how you added the trellis behind your bench. I would have never thought of that! I am also drooling over all of your gorgeous planters and cherubs :)

  4. Move over A Shabby Moment in Time - We'll have to share the settee.

    But I'm grabbing that burlap lettered pillow for my aching back, cause I've been in the garden too, and we do not have good weather - we have nothing but HOT.

    Kathleen, the porch looks wonderful. Do you ever find strangers just hanging out there? No, well wait.... :0
