As the weather here gets cooler we’ll be spending more time on the porch, so last night I decided to make it a bit more homey. I’ll be adding more plants, but for now I’m happy with how it turned out!
I think this area needs a rug and or at least some throw pillows. Suggestions?
I brought some plants, from the dining room, outside. I still have pots that need to be filled but no plants to fill them with, so I used one for Penelope’s chalk.
My brother just gave me this brown chair before he moved to Oregon. It is really comfortable! The arm rests are so high - great for long, gangly arms! I made a runner out of a lace curtain we weren’t using, a plant, and some candles and voilà, cozy enough for cool evenings outside.
(Before this area had the green chair, the rocker, and that table was always covered in tools)
I also received this corner shelf from my brother, still bare, but we’ll get it stocked with stuff…slowly. The rocker was a gift from Zack’s grandparents – my favorite seat! I’ve always loved the idea of a rocking chair on the front porch.
I l o v e this yard. Never disappoints.
Looking for stars.
She decided every piece of chalk needed to be used.
She asked me to draw a baby, but it ended up looking more like a toddler…with no hands.
My Sweet Pea.
Zack, happy with his girlies. The girls keeping a close eye on Maple.
Penelope took a few photos with the camera…her toes…
…Maple licking Mama’s leg…
…and A, resting her head on Daddy’s arm.
It was wonderful watching the sunset, drawing chalk art with my little lady, all while over hearing Amelia’s giggles as she plays with Daddy. Pretty great way to end the day.
