Porch Plaids


             Hello everyone,

                    I hope you are enjoying a peaceful

                                                         I do love plaid/tartan at this
                                                          time of the year so I have
                                                          used it to make the porch
                                                          cosy for the winter. Even if 
                                                          we don't spend much time
                                                          out there in the winter it is
                                                          pretty to look at. It would be
                                                          nice to have an outdoor propane
                                                          heater out there though and a
                                                          birdfeeder close by and sit and
                                                          enjoy a cup of hot cocoa  now
                                                          and then.


The bigger picture.....the
above is the view from
the french door in the hall,
so I enjoy it every time I
pass by.

Both sides of the same porch.
It is L shaped.

                                                          I plan to add fairy
                                                          lights either on the
                                                          branches or the windows.

Wicker and plaid.

                                                  These two photos are from
                                                   the Boathouse porch decorated
                                                   for winter a few years ago.

                                                       I love the old vintage

I enjoy making " Christmas
cards" so from now
until Christmas you
will probably get
a few!

Stay well,

I decorate with tartan. Ribbons, tablecloths, duvet cover etc. It started a couple of years ago when I got hooked on the TV programme 'Outlander'. (I'd read the books but they didn't have the same affect.) :D
