Summer Porch Party

 Welcome! I'm so glad you could stop by to say hello. We could not have asked for better weather for Rhondi's annual porch party. Thanks Rhondi for hosting this great party! If you were here last year you will see not too much changed here except the way I have the porch set up. I would have loved to add some of my bird houses but they are in need of a good painting and I did not realize it until I went to unpack them, so...Come on up and enjoy!

Make yourself comfortable.

 Of course when the word party is mentioned it does not take the party animals long to show up.

My rocking chairs have been around a long time and have been so many colors, but I think they will will stay white for now.

 Remember these milk boxes? I use mine to hold my small garden tools and gloves. When I want to do a quick trim they are within reach and so easy to get to.
I just love to sit here and take in the piece and quiet.

These candles give off just enough glow to be able to enjoy sitting back listening to the owls and frogs singing their night songs.

Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to stop by Rhondi's  Rose Colored Glasses for the rest of this great party.

Also ladies be sure to go see Kim at
 Savvy Southern Style for another great party to show off your great porch or deck June 22.

And don't forget A Southern Daydreamer for Outdoor Wednesday.
Last of all Pink Postcard is having a porch and deck party too. So many parties so little time!!!
