  1. I use my leave blower on my front porch & walkway a couple of times a week to tidy up. A fresh coat of paint on wicker furniture brightens up my porch. Spray paint is my friend ? I have several potted shrubs and plants too – shrubs are hydrangeas, boomerang lilac. Fuchsia pots hang from my porch to attract the hummingbirds. I love sitting out with coffee in hand a good book mid morning after my walk. I have a window washing company come out in April and again in September to keep my windows clean. Getting lazy in my old age. I painted my front door red about ten years ago and still love it! I do touch it up to keep it looking fresh. I think I need one of those decals. They add a sweet, welcoming touch.

  2. Yvonne, This week in N.C. is our first summerlike weather so it was a great time to read your ideas for summer decorating. We got some new black rockers for our front porch and have added some lime green and black and white buffalo check pillows with a buffalo check outside rug under our welcome mat. Planters are being planted and hanging baskets added. Great to have a pretty place to sit and have a drink with my husband and watch the birds and enjoy nature.

  3. Yvonne, I admire you so much! I love your blog posts, they are always inspirational in a multitude of ways. Thank you for all the great ideas, so simple and practical!

    1. We are not sure. I said in the post it was painted that color when we moved in. I did order an electronic color finder to see what color it is. So when I find out I’ll let you know. Happy Summer!

  7. Yvonne, thank you for all your decorating inspiration.
    It’s fabulous! Do you have a link for the rug inside your front door? Thank you
