Summer Porch

My dream porch would be a wraparound porch with a white picket fence, wicker chairs where I sit with my blue bonnet sipping lemonade and reading magazines while watching the kids play quietly on the driveway. In reality, we have a very small front porch in our new house and I can barely see the driveway, where Anthony often plays hockey.

This is my way of decorating my small porch and recreate my vision. I forgot to add the lemonade to the table, but just picture it... and me with a blue bonnet (yes, like Hollie Hobby).

Can you spot a certain someone wondering what I am up to?

I purchased the chair at Costco recently for $39.99 and added an outdoor cushion that I bought last summer on clearance for $2 or $3.

The Ikea table has seen better days, but I like the rusticness of it. (read: I haven't spray painted it... yet)

The little lantern is garage sale find a few years ago, I think it's originally  from IKEA.

I re-used a planter from last year  and planted some pretty red annuals in it.

Although my little covered porch is not really my dream porch, I am happy with it, and it is welcoming.

This is what it looked like this past winter.

What would your dream porch look like? And did I completely lose you on Holly Hobbie?
