I LUV bright colors

Wow! It's really been awhile since I've blogged. Not alot going on......just trying to keep cool.

A few weeks ago I painted our shutters black and brightened up our front door a little. You know us girls and our paint. A little paint always makes everything feel new. Here's just a few pictures of the front porch area.


I painted the bench black......it was kinda rusty and added a couple of brightly colored pillows from Target. I luv my Live..Laugh..Love sign so much in my laundry room, I thought I would purchase another one from Hobby Lobby and hang it above my bench. I think it looks so cute there!

My sweet neice Lou make me this wreath!
Our Tiger Lillies were prettier this year than they have ever been and the color blended right in.

My daughter, Cortney bought me the "M" flag for Christmas and I couldn't wait until spring to put it in the flowerbed.
The flowers around the mailbox are also extra pretty this year.

I'll try and blog soon about the backyard.

Hey Sissy! Your front porch area does look great. The sign does look nice there. I find it interesting that you have hostas and daylillies in the same area. What's surprising is how great they both look!

Hi Becky, I love your front entrance. The first thing I noticed was your sign. How clever to hang it over the bench. That's a lovely wreath too and your flower beds are so cheerful. Great job - when can you be here to help me?????

Hi, Becky..I wondered where you were..:)
Your porch looks great..the flowers are beautiful.
It's been so dang hot here that my flowers look sickly most of the time. My lilies are looking fair.
I love your front door..so cheery...

Becly-what a gorgeous porch and great curb appeal! A nice place to come to after your travels!

Missed you!

bj said...

Just saying thanks for coming by to see me..I always love knowing you were there.
How's things going with SouthWest. Hope they are being able to survive the bad economy. Some airlines are really having a hard time, I understand. Here's hoping things get better!
Take care!

I also love what you did to your back porch. I just want to grab a glass of sweet tea, curl up on the swing, and read! :D

Great job!
