My Front Porch

I thought I would show you what greets guests when they come to my house. This is an old worn desk that I bought here in town at The Green Pea. It has seen better days and won't get wet this winter so it's alright to keep it outside. I can change it up for the holidays.


The quilted piece is a table runner I made with my sewing group quite a few years ago. Like I've said, my home doesn't lend itself to oranges so it looks just fine outside, don't you think

This little pot is just waiting for the orange and black pansies to start blooming.


I wandered out back today and found a paperwhite narcissus blooming along with some pansies. They smell so incredibly sweet, I just love them.


My cold is still lingering so I think I'll go cuddle down in bed with a cup of tea. Have a wonderful day!

I hope you're feeling better today. How much longer until the walnuts are all picked?

Oooh, it looks so welcoming and cozy Miss Jean! I hope you're feeling better SOON. (Maybe you should come and visit here -- we don't have all those almond trees here. It is awfully dry here this year though!)

You take care of yourself Jean and get lots of rest! I am playing hookey from our fellowship. We just got home from an 8 hour trip to pick up the clothing racks this weekend and I am so sore and tired. Always feel bad when the fibro kicks in like this and I can't help Bill

Your porch is so sweet! That little desk is darling and I love the little quilted piece you have there.

We came back and I think we will probably get our freeze tonight- it's getting cold!
