Spring Front Porch 2014

Last week was pretty exciting for me . .

This week, I shall be catching up on my “Spring To Do List” . .

If you missed my Upper Porch . . you can view it here.

  5. Beautiful, Shirley! I would love to sit on your porch and just take that all in. Are the urns filled with ivy or is that something else? Love the purple flowers in the wagon. Geraniums?

    It’s all so pretty and definitely says spring. I am living vicariously through you as I am following the Colorado rule of no potted plants outside until Mother’s Day. However, I am enjoying my red and yellow tulips which are in full bloom.

  14. Mama is a smart woman! Did they take any exterior shots last week? Just this morning I spruced up the containers. My mom and sister are coming this weekend for lilys recital.

  15. Oh Shirley, you never cease to amaze me with all your prettiness. The front porch is stunning and is so welcoming. Your friend did a wonderful job on your wreaths and I like how you used yellow – really brightens everything up.
    Have a wonderful Spring week – we are expecting 90’s all week. To hot for me this early in Spring.

  18. Shirley,
    I love how you use lots of carefully chosen accessories to decorate with, but it never appears to be too much or cluttered. That is definitely a knack I lack! I love the impact of the yellow, and those wreaths are absolutely gorgeous–I need to make friends with a floral designer. 😉 I do believe your flag says it all! Thanks for sharing all your beautiful touches.

  19. Omigosh I want your doors, or at least one of them. No need to be a pig about it, just send me one of yours and wall up that side with plywood. No one will be the wiser 🙂

    Lovely porch, gorgeous home – you are a wonderful decorator!

  20. Love your porch! Also love the tall, skinny bushes flanking your windows with the hanging baskets. What kind of bushes are they? I don’t think I’ve ever seen something like that and could use some. Enjoy your lovely porch 🙂

  21. Jeanette Price says

    I love love the porch!! I’d just love to sit there and watch the world go by. The wreaths are lovely. Can I come over and just sit there for awhile.. I promise I won’t tell anyone where I am..they’d want to come too!

  22. Shirley- The front porch looks as gorgeous as the upper one does. You did a wonderful job out there and the gal that made the wreaths did a spectacular job on them What fun! Your yard that I can see looks beautiful, too. I love how things grow in the South. We don’t have the luxury of a long growing season here. Love your little corner with the old wagon, too. Lovely!!! xo Diana

    Awesome front porch Shirley! I love yellow flowers too. My eye went to the two smaller lanterns hanging from the big metal frame. Nice touch.
