Our Summer Porch



                                                                Hello everyone,

                                  I hope your week is going well. We had a beautiful day
                                  here yesterday and I was happy to be able to take some
                                 time to go to lunch with my daughter and of course a
                                 little shopping.
                                    One day last week I gave our screened porch it's new
                               summer look for this year.
                                                  As always, my little collection of mauve/lilac and
                                                 white came from thrift shops,yardsales etc.              




                                                         I am still enjoying my lilacs but the
                                                        season will soon be gone and the peonies
                                                       will take center stage.
                                                   Hope you are enjoying relaxing on
                                                          your summer porch or your favorite
                                                          little summer space.
                                                           I have a small tour this afternoon(14)
                                                          and it is going to be an umbrella day again
                                                          but at least it is not cold and windy like last
                                                          Saturday.
                                                              If you would like to see more summer
                                                           porches you can check out my porches
                                                           board on pinterest here
                                   

                                                                     Thanks for visiting!

                                                                                    Carolyn

I think your porch is my favorite part of your house, not that I've ever been there! I love the bed there; my husband likes taking a nap on our porch!

Oh my gosh... how beautiful. We are screening our porch this fall, you are giving me ideas. I hadn't thought about a twin bed... very cute! Love it all... hope you can share it at Home Sweet Garden... http://creativecountrymom.blogspot.com/2014/06/home-sweet-garden-617.html

I really love your screen porch with all the lavender...and a bed on it! Do you ever sleep out there in the summer. It looks so cozy and fun.

Beautiful, Carolyn. One question: how, exactly, do you protect the fabrics, let alone the mattress, on a bed in a screen-only porch? I'm paranoid about the threat of leaks in a totally enclosed sunroom, so I guess I'm just a worry wart!

I just love the lavender hue you've given your porch, Carolyn! It looks beautiful and would be a pleasure to be able to enjoy this space.

I love the shades of purple you've chosen for the summer porch. That quilt on the bed is so pretty. The sun came out here around 4 this afternoon after heavy rain most of the day. It cleared off tonight so you should have a pretty good day tomorrow. Enjoy!

Hi Carolyn,
I have been searching for years for a twin iron bed like yours. I'm not having any luck with vendors willing to ship.
Local pickup only. I'm in Texas and not good for vintage beds unless you go to the annual fairs and they put prices like they're selling to royalty. Would you know if your antique shops happen to ship to Texas? Thank you.
I adore your home, cottage and especially your porches. I could live in fairyland there.
Hilary
