Welcome to my home and my front porch. Nothing fancy, just a typical California ranch entry way. I love to decorate it for all the seasons.
When we moved in and painted the house, I knew I wanted a red front door. The door was actually white with a real dated blue and white glass. We found a piece of salvage leaded glass and had it put in.
The little swing on our porch was hung by my husband’s grandfather in 1958. We cherish it and repair it as needed but it is the perfect size for this spot. I love to watch my kids outside or enjoy a cool drink in the evenings just swingin’ away.
All the decor on the porch comes from things we have collected over the years. The wood boxes were unearthed from the garage. A hint of the egg laying chickens outback greets you when you arrive.
I love watering cans and flags. I try to work them in everywhere.
We actually have changes in store for the porch. My brother, a brick mason, is going to brick it over and enlarge it a bit. The old concrete is showing its age and I am excited to spruce it up.
When May comes around, the flags come back out for the summer. Memorial day to Labor day and the red white and blue is flying proudly at our home.
Thanks for coming by and taking a little tour of our front porch.
