I am a porch person...


Can you tell???? Here is a little, round table, nestled between my 2 new(new to me, anyway) white wicker rockers. On it sits: several books I have going at one time, peonies taken from my mom's garden, birdhouse won as the door prize by my oldest daughter at a bridal shower last week, Trapp candle Mediterranean Fig, chapstick, and a pen to scribble in my Bible. If it is first thing in the morning, my tiffany blue coffee cup would be squeezed in there somewhere. The front porch is my favorite morning spot. The "bumblebird" feeder is just 2 feet from me, and if I am careful about my movements, they don't seem in the least bit bothered by my presence. Everyone else is still sleeping, and if I am there early enough, I get to see the spectacular sunrise. "Early in the morning will I rise up to seek Thee..."



We go through a flag a year, due to the wind on our little house on the prairie. But, I DO so love to see a flag hanging from the front porch!
Pin It!

I simply cannot keep up with all these posts and comments.

It is a nice break every time my arm needs a rest from painting.

Check out "stuff"

I love your blog and your porch post made me agree: we have wind, too and it doesn't take long for the wind to make the flag look a little "under the weather"! My porch is my favorite spot, too, but yours sounds more "lived in", I never leave anything out there because it gets so ratty with dust (there's a dirt road nearby and farm fields all around me) but I love my porch best after dark, when it's so quiet and there's a breeze and it's about 70 degrees! I am trying to get the lighting just right so I can go out there and read at night without the bugs and moths being pests. My rocker is my fave chair, too, but your wicker sounds so much more comfy! Thanks for the post, and the pictures, I always love your pictures!
