~Whites on the Porch~

Most of you who have been following my blog know that I love warm sunny days.  Summer never lasts long enough for me, but I'm just trying to enjoy every day soaking up the sun.

I've been busy working out in my garden during the day and relaxing on my porch in the evenings.  The combination of greenery and chippy whites are so soothing to me and this area when you first walk up onto the porch is filled to the brim. Enjoy!  xoxo K.

My husband made this cupboard and added galvanized tin to the back of the shelf.  The architectural piece is a nice touch for more texture among the metal baskets that sit on top.  Many pots, garden utensils and bird nests sit on the shelf and I have pots that are not used stored in the bottom.

I recently added this corner metal shelf which is perfect for more flowers to greet you as you are welcomed into the house.  

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Summer!

  11. Kathleen, your front porch looks so pretty. I love the shabby whites and green foliage. The old cabinet and wire corner shelf are great for seasonal displays. It would be a lovely spot to enjoy in the evening after a hot day. Blessings, Pamela

  19. Yummy, yummy, yummy EYE CANDY! Love your chippy white and love the plants. I'm a plant / porch person myself. Do you move your plants to water them so the cabinet doesn't suffer water damage? Where are you? I'm in Alabama

  23. Our husbands...God love 'em. They sure know how to keep us happy don't they?
    Your porch is a welcoming beacon on a hot afternoon. In fact, a pimento cheese sandwich and a sweating glass of sweet tea sounds perfect.
