Porches are amazing spaces!!! While cleaning yesterday, I reminisced about the fun times that have been shared on the back screened porch with family and friends in the last couple of years. There have been birthday parties, a slumber party, an early fall chili get together, after swimming "snack-togethers"....and the list could go on and on. One thing most porches have in common is a rocker! Searching for interesting, "old" porches, I found lots to share. The left pic has some real vintage character! Imagine all the neat stories and gossip those rockers could tell. The right pic reminds me of my childhood home. We had a big red glider kind of like this one. Remember those???? It was the perfect seat for a lazy day. I was lucky enough to find a "two-seater" metal glider in that awesome shade of red for one of the decks last year. It's a memory maker, too! Do you dream on your porch? Do you count stars? Do you share lemonade with the neighbor there??? Do you have a sleeping porch where the midnight noises of nature sing you to sleep?
