I was looking out over my back porch this morning, which to be honest, looks a little skanky. Yes, that’s word, because I just used it in a sentence. By skanky, I mean kinda bad. Patches of snow here and there(still), a dead tree in a pot that is actually turned over on its side, lawn chairs all akimbo, because we were using them to keep an ugly sheet of plastic over the fountain so it wouldn’t freeze, flotsam and jetsam all around….just skanky. The picture above is what my dream porch would look like(thanks Frontgate)…and here are some more….enjoy.
This one is probably too sleek for me, but it has a look….
This one I adore. No skank here at all. Restoration Hardware…..
All I want to know is…who’s gonna clip the hedges? I’ll light the candles.
How fabulous is this look? It’s from Great Gatherings in Annapolis! They have some great stuff(thus the name fits.)
And this look is a little more formal, but soooo lovely…and solid. From Bazensky’s Furniture in Middle River…note the LIVE tree in the background, and it’s pot is not overturned. Skank-free zone.
From Brown Jordan…just so clean and sleek, but inviting too…It’s called Canyon.♥ The Palmetto.
And as usual, Pottery Barn has it goin’ on…they just get it. Always have.
Another one from Pottery Barn…love the carved look…and while it looks like a living room piece, it’s from Eucalyptus wood, that is meant for outdoors. Love it. In the meantime, I will try to clean up my scene outdoors…neaten it up…and think about getting something new for outside this spring. Keep dreaming of spring, get a little bouquet of flowers for yourself, and be extra nice to someone this weekend…and come home safe, ’cause we miss you.
