The past few days have been beautiful here in Minnesota. Sunny, warm yet not too humid and slightly breezy.
The girls and I have been spending most of our relaxation time on the sun porch. Yesterday it occurred to me that I haven't shared this area of our home with you in a very long time.
Each spring I like to rearrange the furniture and try out different color schemes. It currently looks like this.
This years theme was inspired by a vintage tablecloth picked up at a garage sale.
The sun porch overlooks our backyard and the park beyond it giving us the illusion of a wide open space which I love.
The girls and I love to eat breakfast and lunch at the table and watch the birds and butterflies in the garden.
The view is so pretty whatever time of day it is.
For a centerpiece I decided to go with something simple so the kids can easily move it out of the way if they'd like.
A wire cake plate, a candle and some rocks seemed simple and pretty to me.
I also added a small dish and a pedestal creamer which the girls use to place any flowers they pick.
Next to the entrance door I place an over sized lantern and a chair for extra seating.
Right now the girls have their picnic basket filled with small toys resting on the chair.
The best spot on the porch is this cozy corner.
The perfect spot to relax, read or take a quick snooze.
Big, fluffy pillows help us snuggle right in.
Next to the lounger was the perfect place to add a few of my favorite things.
Another over sized lantern.
A small red bench.
And a pitcher filled with flowers.
Aren't they gorgeous.
So cheerful and pretty - love them.
And finally, next to the door leading out onto the deck I've placed a patio chair and a galvanized bucket filled with more pillow - just in case!
Hope you enjoy the tour.
Talk to you soon,
