Porch Vignette

                                                      Hello everyone,,

        Today we are getting a little taste of Fall which is nice for getting some badly needed garden chores done. Now that I have given you our local weather report again we can move on.
                               I took a few shots of this vignette in the porch(entryway). Did you notice the shabby chic braided rug on the floor- a $2. thrift find. I love the colors in it.
               I always love to watch lace curtains blowing gently in the breeze in the porch.

            Some old tea cups.
       There is something so fresh about blue and white. Annebelle hydrangeas sitting on the windowsill in a pretty blue and white vase.
And of course a collage to finish off.

Thank you for your visit,

I'm glad you are getting some refreshing weather. It is still hot and muggy here, but much better than when it was peaking.

Thank you for sharing for blue smiles.

Your first sentence made me LOL Carolyn! We are still having fine weather in Holland, but not for long. Dark clouds are gathering :-)!

Your light blue and white room looks very peaceful. The rug is a great find!

Have a lovely day!

This and your last post - all of the lovely blues and grays - have such a calm and lovely late summer feeling. I love this time of year so much! =]

I'm hoping to not only squeeze a little bit more of eating out in the garden into these last warm days but, also, I'm hoping to dig a little bit more garden.... the weather forecast, of course, is for no rain - no rain at all... for once, that sounds good to me! ;) =]

Your porch looks so calm and peaceful, a lovely place to sit. Fall is definitely here in UK and yesterday it poured with rain so no gardening nor today either but the weekend is supposed to be nice so maybe then:)

There sure is something about blue and white. It is always fresh, clean, comfortable, homey-I could go on...Love the lace curtain photo.
Have a breezy day,

Love the wooden sofa and the blue hues. Great thrift find you did on the rug. It looks very soft.
