~On the Porch~

Welcome to my front porch. It gets afternoon and evening sun, perfect for reading a good book and is a favorite place to be in Summer.

I've added some chippy white pieces and lots of pots filled with greenery. 

When we painted our house white last Fall, I decided to paint the front door a lovely grey color called Kendall Charcoal by Benjamin Moore which I think is a nice addition to this area along with some shutters i already had painted a similar color.

I love the simplicity surrounding my front door and these topiaries that I found at Lowe's last Spring

I took some photos of these wonderfully fragrant old fashioned roses earlier this summer and enjoy these old terracotta pots filled with plants. 

We've had some cool and cloudy weather here the past few days, but the forecast is calling for 90's by the weekend, which I'm okay with because I'm no where near ready for Summer to be over yet...I have a lot more porch sitting to do!

Hope you are all having a wonderful week.


  1. Love the decorative little cabinet with all the pots on it.

  2. Your porch looks so pretty and I love that rustic chair.

  3. What a pretty front porch, I could happily spend some time whiling away a few hours there! I do love the grey front door, I love grey and white, always a very simple, very clean combination. I am nowhere near ready for summer to be over yet, I feel as if we are only half way through, our children don't go back to school until the first week of September, so we have nearly another month, thank goodness!
