Please join us for shopping with a twist on Friday July 30th 2010 as we present "Summer Porch"


I can’t think of anything more inviting than a summer porch. Starting your day with a cup of tea in a favorite antique tea cup or watching a sunset from a vintage wicker rocker, filled with plump cushions, inspired by days gone by.

A summer porch can be a place of solace, when you need a moment to unwind, or a place of shelter during a warm summer rain.
A welcoming porch creates a friendly entryway to your home. And with the right accessories, can become an extension of your home.
Our summer porch was always filled with pots and planters of brightly colored geraniums. It didn’t feel like summer without these welcoming blooms.
For entertaining guests, vintage chairs, painted in blues and whites, no two alike, made comfortable with pretty floral pillows propped against their backs.  An ornate table, painted white and adorned with layers of beautiful white linens. A welcoming site for all that come to visit.
For cozy evenings, cut glass cups, glow with the soft flicker of a candle within. An old mason jar, one saved from grandmother’s canning cellar, is filled with fresh cut daisies. A quilting project, tucked into a favorite basket, ready to be worked on at a moments notice.
As you relax and sip your iced tea, your eyes follow the simple, uncluttered decor of of your summer porch. The vintage lace curtains, stirring in the warm evening breeze, the gingerbread window boxes, filled with summer blooms, and just beyond the porch, a whimsical pink bicycle, it’s basket filled with blooms in shades of pink. You sigh with contentment as you welcome another summer evening.

Det finns så mycket fint på din sida så man blir galen. Jag förstår engelska och kan läsa hjälpligt men ibland blir det fel så jag skall skaffa funktionen där man kan gå in och översätta. Tack för alla dina fina kommentarer på min blogg ;) Jag har läst fel på lite få min man fick komma in och hjälpa mig. Han är bättre än mig på engelskan och kan även prata tyska. Jag såg kuddar på en av länkarna som var liknande dom jag gjort med tyg i mitten men på länken var dom mer arbetade och fantasifulla.

Nu skall jag testa igen om jag får in detta.

Ha en jättefin dag over there
