Summery Screened Porch

I have finally gotten the back porch cleaned up and thought I would pot a few pictures. This is part of the addition we made to our house about 15 years ago. I love to decorate it, but rarely spend time here unless we have company. I'm always working in the yard, swimming, or crashed in front of the TV!
I just repainted the wicker this spring. I like the white, but I'm not fond of the cushions. I just bought them last year so I can't replace them. But I am pretty happy with how it all looks, for the time being!

It's fun to arrange my garden stuff on this potting bench. And I'm always on the lookout for new goodies to put here.

I keep my garden gloves in the little wheelbarrow my husband made. You can't see it very well, but the wooden board that the hooks are on was once the seat of the swing for the boys.

If you shop at Joann's, you may notice that I do too! They have a lot of neat garden things in the spring and by summer, it's all on sale. I never pay full price there.

I hope everyone has a great Father's Day. Our son and daughter-in-law are having us over for dinner. The baby is due any time now. Maybe today!

Oh you must start spending more time in your porch. It is just so cute and cozy in there I think you need some good books to curl up in there and read this summer.
