Mountain Farmhouse front porch

Welcome to my front porch! 

We spruced things up a little earlier this year and have been enjoying the beautiful weather here in the mountains.

Pin It

I decided to add some hanging ferns this year after going without for several years. I love the soft look and am really enjoying having them here again.

If you remember last year, we had a termite issue in the wood rockers here so I literally burned them and moved the iron settee out here.

I made the back pillow covers from a vintage sari, and the bottom seat cushions I covered with an outdoor floral fabric I bought years ago. I made all the throw pillows as well.

Of course the vintage sign that hung on the old garage here is still a favorite in this spot. I made the wreath years ago out of our grapevines. 

We've had to fight the pollen, but my weapon is just using a blower to clean everything off. It's definitely better than trying to sweep anything.


It's beautiful at night as well, as we saw our first "lightening bugs" this weekend.  I hear that city people call them firefliesšŸ˜€

It's all a huge amount of work, but we sure do enjoy these beautiful mountain summers and are looking forward to a lot of porch sittingšŸ˜Š

Thanks for stopping by!
