My Favorite Porch Vignettes

 

I love putting vignettes together, don’t you?
 
 
I especially had fun creating several floral vignettes for the budget screened porch project I worked on this last week.
 
 
There are fairies on my porch watching over the flowers….
 
 
 
There’s a sweet little doggie on the porch watching over me!
 
 
And there are deer there too holding my pen and pads for whenever an inspiration might hit me.
 
I really did have a lot of fun digging through my stash of goodies and creating a space where Tim and I can enjoy hanging out in the evenings.
Are you spending  much time on your deck or porch this summer?
I hope you are!
 
I plan to be back to share more photos of my entire budget porch redo with you early next week.
 
On Saturday I plan to join Katie’s Little Blog for the June Photo A Day Challenge again.
I hope to see you there!

I can’t let the day go by without saying,
Happy 40th Birthday to our oldest son, Jefferson!
 
I’m Partying Here:

  7. Yes, and I enjoy seeing what others do! Do you ever see someone else's vignette and want to tweak it some? I hadn't had that happen until last night. LOL. Took me long enough. Handsome son…hard to believe it's possible for you to have a son who is 40!

  10. Those vignettes would make great note cards! I love how you set up your shots. We are using our porches more than ever this year. We have always been “porch people” and find it odd that there are so many grand porches in the neighborhood that nobody use. Our porches are getting a lot of use so that DH can be outside and get a change of scenery from being cooped up.
