Spring Upper Porch ~ 2016

I have been patiently waiting for the all clear of the pollen season to be over,

so that I could start on refreshing the porches for Spring.

Today, I present the upper back porch. One of the three porches that we use the most.

My friend Martha who relocated to the Lone Star State had this beautiful flower pot

that I inherited which is the inspiration piece for my Spring decor for the porch.

The Upper Porch Dressed for the Holidays with Chinoiserie

It was supposed to be a birthday and Valentine’s Day gift,

an outdoor rug that I saw in the Frontgate catalog

that I fell in love with!

I ordered it and they said it was on back order.

OK . . . I can wait, but it took 9 months! . . . . But have to say, it was worth the wait.

Fall Porch 2015 and A Giveaway

I know that Fall is approaching when I see the beautiful mums in the garden centers

and even the grocery stores. As soon as they appear, I have this need to buy some

to begin decorating one of my porches.

The porch you see from all of the rooms on the main floor.

Master Bedroom Fall Makeover

The Master Bedroom Fall Makeover was the first on my list for transitioning into Fall.

Could it be because it’s the easiest one for me? Or could it be that this room

is not as visible to others . . . and the thought of changing things out for Fall

when it is still warm and the leaves have not turned colors may be rushing it a bit.

How To Makeover a Winter Bedroom to Spring

The news lately is all about how awful the winter storms are . . .

Places like Boston with record breaking snowfalls and here this week we are dealing with a winter storm

with mainly ice . . . hate ice, would rather have snow!

While hunkered down in the house with a driveway like an ice skating rink,

I decided to make over my bedroom from Winter to Spring,

as I am officially tired of Winter and do not want to embrace it anymore!!
