Finally!

Well, I am as done with the porch as I am
ever going to be. Good thing too, as
it has been over 90 degrees for the last 3 days!

The table cloth and table skirt, I cut
from shower curtains from the Target line
"Simply Shabby Chic".



The covers for the cushions on the adirondack
chairs are pillowcases so I can remove them and
wash . I don't know if it is because of the
trees or what but it gets quite dirty out there.



The curtains in the corners are just
for decoration to soften the corners.
I can't put too many accessories out here
as the wind blows right thru here and
knocks things to the floor.





Come on over for an iced tea!

You have done a fabulous job. It looks so pretty.
Iced tea mmm.. too cold for me as it is now Winter in Australia so a hot chocolate might be better!!

It's lovely! I'm having trouble with the wind this Summer too. I like to take my photos out on the back porch (for website or ebay items, etc) but lately the wind is making it challenging. Have a great weekend. Blessings... Polly

I L-O-V-E your porch and the colors you chose are so sweet!! Reminds me of salt water taffy!! You did a fabulous job and I'd love to come over for a glass of Iced Tea and sit there and visit. How long of a drive to Ohio from California? :)

Karen,
Absolutely outstanding....the porch is remarkable and sew clever. Love it. Yes of course I would love that ice tea...next time you come here and sit in the gazebo...which is not nearly as grand as your WONDERFUL porch. Have a lovely week.

Hi Karen your porch is just beautiful. I love how the chairs look in the different colors. I'll be right over for iced tea! I can help you out with that crochet. If you go to my father's day post, in the one pic of my Mom & Day in my blue kitchen you can see my first attempts at crochet. THe teacup on the hutch and sunbonnet Sue and Sam potholders hanging on the wall. They were the first things I made. I had to teach myself my Mother In Law did not have the patients. LOL
Blessings, Shirl
