A Spring Porch

Thank you, Jesus for the SUNSHINE!

It finally feels like Spring.

I painted the frame this morning 
simply with acrylic paint.
A few brush strokes and a bit of sanding
and Voila!

Please don't look at the pot without flowers.
Not many flowers for sale yet.

I found the wrought iron patio chair
by the side of the road.

Backed right up there 
and grabbed a seat!

I bought a basket of geraniums
for my galvanized bucket.

There was very little to choose from yet
at The Flower Garden.

We're afraid that Spring is teasing us.

I found the pillow covers at 
Hobby Lobby for $7 each.

Sure beats $20 a pillow even at T.J.Maxx.

Some of the green is peaking through.
Will add a pot to the patio chair.
Add a new flag and some flowers to the pot.

Then we'll look like Spring.  

Welcome Spring, 

(This post was written yesterday.  Today it is raining and cool.
I did make it to church, even with vertigo.
Today will be a nap kind of day.)


  1. Lovely porch, my friend! : )
    We are cool today as well...
    I was just thinking of taking a nap myself...
    Sweet Dreams!

  2. BEAUTIFUL AQUA HERE! And yes, thank you, JESUS for each day, rainy, snowy or sunny, because we are alive and born again in His spirit to witness it all. Thank you kindly for coming to visit today! Anita

  3. Your porch looks very pretty and inviting. I hope some rest will help your vertigo. Take care.

  9. A lovely spring porch. Love your "curb side" find.

    Pillows certainly gives a "Spring" look to your bench.

    I've had the flu all weekend so didn't make it to church today. I'm starting to feel better which is good because I have to work tomorrow. :(

  11. Bonnie, Spring is most definitely a tease, but that is her nature. I love the chevron pillows. Have a wonderful week. Bonnie
