~Relaxing on the Porch~

My favorite part of summer is when I have a minute to sit down and relax on my porch.  This usually happens in the evening and it's a great place to unwind from the day.  I'll share a few photos and if you'd like to see more you can click here to go over to Jill's blog Gypsy Brocante where she was nice enough to feature my porch for August's Porch off the Month.  She is also having a great giveaway of a beautiful purse that she made that you don't want to miss out on.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

Linking to these parties today:

  17. Stopping by from Laurie Anna's. Aren't the big ol' front porches one of the best features of old homes and the perfect place to spend an evening?
