Cottage Style Party #39





A welcoming porch.


I like having a welcoming porch.


Not just for guests

but for me too.







This past weekend I put away the snow shovel,

washed the pillows, hosed off the dirt and grime and 

created a welcoming porch.






I bought a hanging basket of pansies

and some sweet-smelling potted hyacinths

to welcome me when I come home.







The daff report:





Blooming!


Woot!















Welcome to this weeks 


Cottage Style Party!




Welcome to spring the cottage style way!






The tea cup below is just one of many lovely sets to welcome you to tea time!




Drop in to Lady B's Time for Tea to see more of her gorgeous tea cups and stay for tea!










I just adore this gated trellis and flower garden...so welcoming!




Stop by Fishtale Cottage to see the evolution of her garden!

Hint...early version on top, current on the bottom...gorgeous!









I am always looking for mantel ideas and I have found a good one!

I think I have half the items in this display...I need to get on it because this is so cute!




Drop on in to Vintage on a Dime to see more of her wonderful mantle decorating ideas!

  15. I love your front porch, I could see myself sitting there and having a cup of Tea in that rocking chair. I lived in an 1895 house for years and loved it. I found you on A Southern Daydreamer, you are welcomed to stop by and visit me on my blog.
    Have a great spring day,
    Sylvia
