The Back Porch

Ever since I started reading Susan's blog Between Naps on the Porch, I've been in love with her back porch.

Our porch is not as large as Susan's but I wanted to have a little place to escape to read, enjoy tea or lunch or just watch the birds as they come and go from the feeder.

My original thought was to find some pretty white wicker furniture. But when I found this set a couple of years ago, I knew it would be perfect for our little nook.

A little note about these luncheon napkins. My step-mother gave these to me, along with a matching tablecloth. The tablecloth was used til it became thread bare and badly stained, but I never used the napkins. They were a wedding gift, so they are probably considered vintage by now ;-)

I've been picking up these Boopie glasses at the thrift stores.

Most mornings, you can find me sitting out here with my book and cup of green tea. You are always welcome to join me.

You have a lovely porch, Jocelyn. I would love to join you there for some tea. I like your Boopie glasses. I've never heard the name before but I think I've seen them or at least something similar. Thanks for sharing and Happy Summer!

Blessings,
Sandi
