The old chair has a few spring touches. I will deepen the colors for summer, but I'm going to enjoy the pastels for a little while first.
My porch isn't very big, so I have limited options.
I like to use this skinny church to add a little height.
I ordered the tulip doormat from Amazon, but we are having trouble with it. When it rains, the mat gets wet and it leaves a brown stain on the porch. It also takes forever to dry. So, while I like it...as soon as a I find a new one, it is gone. No more mats made of this material for me.
I love geraniums.
This is my favorite week of the year at our house. Our daughter is home! We see her 3 or 4 times a year, but she only comes home once a year and there is just something so wonderful about knowing she is sleeping in her room. We have fun when we see her in Orlando, but it just isn't the same as having her home. We picked her up in Indianapolis yesterday and she is staying until next Monday. We don't have big plans, but we have a few things scheduled for the week if we can keep the rain away. Our plans for yesterday were somewhat of a mess. We planned to leave the airport and go to Broad Ripple Village, and area of galleries and shops in Indianapolis. We didn't realize that they would be having a biking marathon and the shops were closed. We got out of the car, walked where we could and got out quickly!
We planned to eat at a restaurant in Carmel, IN called the Jersey Cafe. We saw it on the Food Channel and thought it would be fun to try it. We drove several miles to get there and it was closed on Sundays! So, we just started for home and stopped in Terre Haute, IN at Cheeseburger in Paradise.
We shared some fried dill pickles...
I had chips with a variety of dips,
my daughter and my husband had burgers.
Things didn't work out as planned,
but we still had a good time.
I am joining Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch
for Met Monday. Please stop in and say hello.
