Summer porch style...


My sun porch is one of those spaces that always seems to get reworked. Do you have rooms like that, where you just keep moving things about? In my case, the reason for so much change has to do with changing furniture ~ the porch seems to get a lot of leftovers. In anticipation of eventually moving my current kitchen table out here, I decided to get rid of my old coffee table. That meant a rework. Here’s what my porch looks like now:



I feel like I may still need another chair, probably where this stack of pillows is in front of the fireplace. But for now, it’s fine.
Below you can see my fab pink flamingo metal sculpture, a gift from one of my dear friends. We’ve had a thing about pink flamingos for years. They are suddenly becoming more popular, which I’m not sure I like. I’ve never been overly in love with trends. Of course, I only found that fab pink flamingo pillow for my favorite chair a couple of weeks ago ~ the upside to the sudden popularity of pink flamingos.

So that’s my current porch style. Wishing all of you an enjoyable week...

Bringing summer indoors...



My gardenias have been blooming for a couple of weeks and they look and smell absolutely lovely. I cut a few to make a small arrangement for the dining room. They smelled so much like summer I decided I needed to change out my vignette on the sideboard for something more bright and suitable for the season.



I love this tray ~ it’s so vibrant and pretty. It just feels like summer to me.


Wishing all of you a lovely day...

A popular pattern...


My Purple Punch pattern is one my personal favorites. It’s bright and fun and bold and it turned out just as I hoped. It has also proven popular on Spoonflower, too. Someone bought seven yards of fabric in this pattern recently ~ I wish I knew what they had planned for it.
