Gussy’s Inspiration Workshop theme for this week:: PORCHES
Oh how I dream of a house with a wrap around porch.
Earlier this year, I went on a girls trip with my sister and one of my closest friends to Farm Chicks in Spokane, WA. On the way we got side tracked down a country road and stumbled upon this house. All three of us ooh’d and ahh’d and agreed that this was the perfect house with the perfect porch set amongst perfect rolling green hills.
The only problem with this house is that they had neighbors a bit too close. I would like my dream house on the top of one of those rolling green hills with no pesky neighbors to be in my business as I read, dreamt and slept the day away in an outdoor bed like this::
But for now I have a modest front porch. It doesn’t wrap around and it doesn’t have a hanging bed.
It does however welcome family and friends as they come to our home …
Pots filled with flowers planted by me.
Flags showing our love of the country we live in and the respect we have for those that protect us.
Chairs to sit in, built with love by my sweets, and pillows, sewn by me, to dress them up.
It’s been the perfect place to chat with my sweet neighbor and friend while our children play.
Or a spot for me to read a magazine and sip iced tea on a warm summer day.
I smile as I drive up every day because it welcomes me home.
