I know, I know, it’s way too early, but I just can’t help it. The sunny weather is lulling me into a false sense of security–as if every day from now on will be beautiful. I say “false” because my rational brain knows that we are probably in for a couple of months of uncertainty before we can rely on “barefoot” weather. Rational be damned, let’s hear it for the dreamer in the left side of my brain!
So this morning, I’m going to make Mark…er…bake some muffins, squeeze some fresh orange juice, brew some hot coffee, and sweetly ask him to dig through the shed for the spider-ridden lawn furniture. I’m juuuuuuust a teeeensy bit hesitant about putting the cushions out. I’ll probably put them out and then play a game of chance with the weather only to panic and drag them all back inside at the first sign of a cloud.
Here’s to all the dreamers out there!
This sweet little vintage set is just crying out for someone to sit and sip iced tea. I love the delicate twisted iron and the rustic surfaces. I have a corner on my verandah that looks exactly like that. Now I just need to find that set! It was featured in At Home In Arkasas magazine.
Hmmm…this gorgeous sunny bench-for-two would sit prettily on my verandah too. Such beautiful pieces of outdoor furniture.
I am a sucker for anything that rocks, so a photo like this one from Martha Stewart Living just sings to me!
I must have been a southern belle with porch swing and a a big verandah in a past life. I could sit there for hours with my wool and crochet needle. I found this photo by Evan Sklar on Under a Paper Moon blog.
This is my girlfriend, Patty’s, front porch. I fell instantly in love with her red Adirondack chair. It goes perfectly on her dark slate grey front porch. Her woodsy garden is filled with white flowers–quite striking when everything is in bloom. We did a photo shoot for Nicole Jane Home at Patty’s beautiful home last year, and this is one of my favorite shots by photographer, Reinier DeSmit.
