"Summer Porch" Shopping Event at Make Mine Pink

MMP Friday Shopping Event July 30th "Summer Porch"

I can’t think of anything more inviting than a summer porch. Starting your day with a cup of tea in a favorite antique tea cup or watching a sunset from a vintage wicker rocker, filled with plump cushions, inspired by days gone by.
A summer porch can be a place of solace, when you need a moment to unwind, or a place of shelter during a warm summer rain.
A welcoming porch creates a friendly entryway to your home. And with the right accessories, can become an extension of your home.
Our summer porch was always filled with pots and planters of brightly colored geraniums. It didn’t feel like summer without these welcoming blooms.
For entertaining guests, vintage chairs, painted in blues and whites, no two alike, made comfortable with pretty floral pillows propped against their backs. An ornate table, painted white and adorned with layers of beautiful white linens. A welcoming site for all that come to visit.
For cozy evenings, cut glass cups, glow with the soft flicker of a candle within. An old mason jar, one saved from grandmother’s canning cellar, is filled with fresh cut daisies. A quilting project, tucked into a favorite basket, ready to be worked on at a moments notice.

In our Family we have always enjoyed our Porches and backyard Decks. Nothing just beats eating a Al Fresco meal with a good bottle of Wine, and serene beautiful scenery.

Have a Great Week~End my Wonderful Friends!!
Huggs, Nancy
