It's Cold Again. Make It Stop.

May 24, 2013

May has been a tempermental son of a gun. And like most everything else these days, it's starting to annoy me. How's that for pleasant?

The crappy weather has me thinking about warmer weather, which leads me to think of one of the (many) things I'm excited about for the new house - porches! Our current house has zero porches, and sitting in the middle of the lawn just doesn't have the same feel as sitting on a porch. Unless you are picnicing.

The new house has a whopping three porches. One out front, one out the back/side, and one above the front porch that is accessed from the hall of the second floor. Is it called a verandah? Sounds fancy pants.

While I can't do anything more than dream about sitting out at this point, I'm going to share some of my favourite inspiration images from my "Curb Appeal" board on Pinterest. I feel that it's important to note that Alan Jackson's Where I Come From is rolling through my head while I write this. Do with that information what you will.

Big picture inspiration aside, here's a few ideas for seating that I'm jonesing over.
