A light snow is falling today and my soul yearns for spring. I miss the smell of fresh dirt and newly mowed lawns. I want to see green leaves sprouting on the trees and colorful pops of flowers in the garden. Hubby and I have deemed this summer as the season of working on the outside of the house. We plan to paint the exterior and add some new landscaping … maybe install a new patio too. But the weather has to warm up first. Yesterday hovered at 40 degrees so I spent a little time primping the front porch.
And the green is called Blade. This green door leads into our family room but you can’t open it. Whoever lived here previously sealed it shut. It seems weird to me that two doors are right next together on the porch, but I’m sure there was a good reason for this. If you know why … I would love for you to let me know in the comments section below.
Just for fun I hung this aged mirror on the door. I love unexpected touches in the home and who would expect to see a mirror on the porch? Now someone can check their look before knocking on the door.
I added some spring touches to the front door. Baskets of greens and flowers.
Even on days with a light rain falling, I can sit out here and be protected from the weather. In the winter, I miss sitting out here listening to the birds and reading a good book … or enjoying a glass of wine in the evening.
Confession – I don’t read French. I took it in college but haven’t studied it since. I just like the color of the book! If you like the French burlap rooster pillow, you can find one like it online at The Farmhouse Decor Shop.
Even Trixie thinks the porch is looking a bit better with a few touches of spring. Luckily, the snow has stopped falling and the temperatures are supposed to get warmer, but not until a little later in the week. For now, I’ll find solace in the random, sunny, warm days that squeeze in between the frosty winds of March.
