Welcome to the Porch!

I know I have been absent from blogging for a little while, but I took an "unannounced" blogging break.  Sometimes you just have to stop what you are doing to allow yourself to "catch up".  I know you all know what I am talking about.  Spring came on beautifully, and after that horrid winter, well, it was time to just enjoy.

In honor of the beautiful spring we are having, I just wanted to invite you all over and have a little "sit down" on the porch!  It is not a grand porch, or a veranda, or a big, long, wrap around porch, just a "teeny little porch".  Enough for 2 chairs and great conversation, all the while enjoying some sweet and tangy lemonade.  If I had to pick between lemonade and iced tea, I think it would be lemonade, every time.  We should take a poll.... lemonade or iced tea, what do you prefer?

A sweet old cupboard I found last year at an antique mart. Love it with the angel statue that had its little feet glued back on. They seem to be holding just fine. This little cupboard sat on the porch all winter long, and held up just fine. But, I think I am tempting fate. I will find a place for her this winter, inside, away from "the elements".

This old metal table was another find.  Since this picture I have painted the top white, but I think I need to give it another coat.  Do you all remember these tables?  What era?  The 70's?  60's?  I just love it.  It's coffee table height.  Maybe a tad higher.  But I do love it.
And of course, what could be better than a mindful thought, "Water Your Spirit With Faith".  A constant reminder that our Dear Lord looks out after us, through all of our ups and downs.  God Bless You All.  Here's hoping you are all having a wonderful spring, and for those friends in the Southern hemisphere, a lovely fall!

Blessings to all,
