Blog Party and the SUN is out!

Finally...after several days of rain and clouds...(see my last post, 'mondays'...rain had alot to do with that!) ...the sun is out in full force and the sky is BLUE!

A great day for a blog party with a blue theme!

Thought I'd share my favorite room...my blue porch, inspired by Betty Lou Phillips cover of French Influences...



I did this porch several years ago and it remains my favorite place to sit with morning coffee...

I loved the leaded windows and although I couldn't have that I did faux lead my door (painted a striking black!)....


I built the bench, made the cushions and laid a faux black marble floor...




I sit here amongst my cherubs as we wait for gardening weather!


waiting for this years basil to grow....

and my two year old lavender to BLOOM!

Wishing all of you a bright and sunny day!

Hello Paula
I came from Etsy cottage style. Enjoyed your post. The little cherub atop the ball is sooo cute.
Your Etsy shop is fabulous. I've marked you as a favorite. I would love to purchase one of your signs.
Have a great day!

What a wonderful, dreamy place to sit and curl up with a good book or just to de-stress!! Each picture is absolutely divine! I am also participating in the BLUE BLOG PARTY. Please feel free to stop by and take a peek.
Best wishes,
