I don’t know if it’s finished, but I’m done working on it for the year. I would still like to paint the wooden stools and add a long window box behind each bench, but those little projects can wait.
We really like spending time out here. Eleanor and I start out most mornings by sitting on this side of the porch, watching neighbors and cars go by.
Some of the ferns are a little out of control…
But it makes the porch feel lush and green.
Tomorrow, I’ll post a design board with sources listed for everything.
Yesterday’s news can’t really be topped, but I do have another exciting project in the works. And no, we’re not having twins…
I’ll be creating four Halloween projects for Better Homes & Gardens, along with three other amazing bloggers: Kathleen of Twig & Thistle, Liz of Mabel’s House (who also announced her pregnancy yesterday!), and Suzonne of Urban comfort. Our first project will appear in the October issue of Better Homes & Gardens, and the subsequent three will be online at BHG.com. I’ll share the first project with you in early September when the issue hits newsstands.
