Thoughtful Thursday



Nothing like a Southern front porch.

"I live in New York and it's the greatest city, but sometimes I want to move to the place with the porch and the lemonade and the farm."

  9. I do not live in NYC but it is easy to agree with Leelee. The first chair is practically identical to a set of chairs of my late grandmother. I know there aren't many different ways to make a chair, but that is exactly the same!

  15. It can't get better than a front porch, well a leafy back yard isn't bad.

  22. Love the porch & chairs - great shot of them, too.
    If the snow would stop and the temps would warm up above freezing, I'd happily be enjoying my own front porch.. but it looks like I'll have to hope for May. Winter won't budge!
