H and I spend a lot of time sitting on the front porch, drinking sweet tea, and watching the traffic go by.    I decorate it a little different each summer.  This year I put two vintage gliders in the center of the porch with a bench between them for extra seating.  I have lots of pillows to lounge on...
This glider was in the back yard last year...it got a new coat of white paint and moved to the front porch this year...
I bought this glider at an auction last summer....

On the left, the glider is all decked out for fall.  On the right, she has her new summer paint job.
I wanted to show you this rusty crusty chair that I bought at the auction last Saturday....

She cost me $10...no extra charge for all the rust..lol!
This is a wonderful place to sit and have tea...sometimes the neighbors stop by for a visit...

I've never tried a rug on the porch...I wonder how it will last!  I've had this rug for a long time, more than 15 years...it has been in the entryway and I replaced it a few weeks ago with a beautiful yard sale find ..$20.  (show you later)




There is the Hoosier potting bench in the back ground...
On the left is a photo of how the front porch was decorated last year.
Thanks for stopping by...

til next time.....

  2. Waouh ! Your porch is just a dream and I love so much the carpet ! Not really possible here in Paris because we are never sure about rain ! Just for the moment so sunny ...

  4. Some of my favorite places to take in the scenery around our farm is from our porches. Give me a porch, a rocker or glider to sit in and a pretty view, and I'm quite content. ;)

    Hope you have a wonderful holiday season.
    Blessings,
    Liz @ The Brambleberry Cottage

  7. Perfectly charming, Penny, as the rest of your home. I love front porches that invite neighbors to come and sit a spell. Yours certainly is welcoming. Love the rug. You really should come and share this at Every Room In The House. We're partying outdoors this month and your porch fits the theme to a tea (pun intended). Here's the link :http://www.ajoyfulcottage.com/2014/06/every-room-in-house-party-7.html Hugs ~ Nancy

  8. Penny: I love what you have done to the front porch. It looks like another room. You are so lucky to have such a large front yard. Always a delight to visit. Hugs, Martha
