Glimpses From The Sunporch...


Our sunporch is a work in progress.  Originally a deck, it has evolved over the years into a screened porch, and finally into a sunporch.  It is still being finished off, but is hard to get any work done as it is the most relaxing space...and we tend to take a lot of naps out here!  It seemed like a good time to share some glimpses of the space, with the Fourth of July nearly here.  We decorate with red, white, and blue and vintage Americana, out in this space year round!  Thought you might enjoy seeing some of the vignettes, even though we are still under construction!


















And we aren't the only ones who nap out here...


Thank you for all of your nice comments on my last post...I hope to stop by and visit soon...lots of summer fun has been going on around here lately!
 
I am joining Common Ground's Vintage Inspiration Friday Patriotic Party
and
2805's Potpourri Friday

Until next time...hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  6. I only saw the crock with the flags in it on your FB page, but now it really does look like my porch! Same crock, wicker planter, wicker chair with cushions, scale -- I even have a Liberty beverages bottle with a flag!

    Now if I could borrow the pug and that Skee Cup game...

  16. Linda- I love all the things you have collected along the way. I had a marshmallow tin like that one at one time. Your sun porch is lovely. There is nothing like a great enclosed porch- xo Diana

  25. I'd nap out there! I'd live out there if you'd let me!

    It really is a wonderful space with so many special things.... and enjoyed by a lovely family too :)

    I've always loved the idea of a porch just like in the Waltons (I loved that programme) with a swing seat... bliss :)

    Have a great weekend

  34. Hey sweet girl! :)
    I inspire YOU?! You inspire ME! You have such a wonderful knack for putting things together and making them look cute! :) I LOVE your picture with the home sweet home in it!! I'm looking for things for my dining room that are farm house-y (SO not a word!) and I think I might copy that for above the shelf I'll be building on the wall across from the window seat wall. I'm such a glutton for punishment! lol I've been buying some ironstone to put up there too. :) I'll be excited to get it all done, but I have SO much more to do! I'm working on the wainscoting and still have a bunch of sewing and painting left to do. My carpal tunnel will only let me do so much painting at a time though...I'm taking a bit of a break. :)
    Hope you're having a great weekend!
    Love YOU much!
    Missy :)

  36. Oh dear Linda,
    All those beautiful patchwork carpets -they are so fantastic work of art, and I love them. Must be wonderful there on your sun porch- even in a little grey day, you can be comfortable in one of them around you, and then watching all your other great collection,sitting there- you can`t ask for more !
    Hugs,Dorthe

  37. So many pretty things! Your sunporch is already gorgeous. I love how big it is. My sunporch is much smaller but by far, my favorite space in the house.
    Happy 4th of July
