I really wanted to post my porch..but..I didn't make it. My computer would not let me download my pictures. Hmm...perhaps the computer ...

...knew something I did not? I tried...all last night..and this morning. I knew...

.....I had to do the post...and then jump over and sign up...but the computer would throw me off every single time. The pictures would begin to download to blogger...

...and then I would find myself...kicked to the curb! I got sick of bounce, bounce, bouncing...over and over...

...and over..but..I would pick myself up...and try once again...until finally... sweet husband called and they will be here in the morning. I was able to stay online for about 30 seconds at a time. Do you think possibly...just possibly that the computer...or blogger, KNEW you all had seen this silly porch and didn't want to see it AGAIN! I sort of think that is probably the case..but...I am SO proud of it. Besides...I have added a few the heart shaped hanging pot holder made of grapevines?

Yes...old as the hills but I spray painted it...put a pretty pot on it and hung it on the blank white wall. I like it and already a tiny little wild finch is checking it out to make her nest in. She wasn't even afraid of me.
I mean there's nice family..what more could a little Mommy finch want for?
I'm sorry I didn't make it. As I said. I tried! HARD! I missed the party...but better late than never..right? right?
Then...I was able to go see Rhondi's porch..and darn near...deleted this :)

Smiles and love,


  1. Lucky you having a porch, I wish I had one. Your photos are just so beautiful. Hope your computer is feeling better.

  2. Blogger can be a pain in the you know what sometimes! I love your porch...

    I love the white wicker...I love you bunny. Everything says welcome to me!

    If you haven't yet, I would love it if you visited my porch too...

  3. Oh, Dear Mona! I'm sorry about your puter problems! But I love your porch and it's not silly! It's a cozy comfy looking place with beautiful plants!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  4. What I wouldn't give for a porch like that....nice summer evening, fireflies flitting around, nice cold drink....ahhh, heaven.

  5. Aw sorry to hear about your computer problems Mona. But what a great porch! I love your new heart shaped planter! :)

    All the best,

  6. Mona,
    This is just BEAUTIFUL! I really love it and what a cute pic of you. Sorry about your computer problems, been there for sure. Is that cobblestone for your porch floor? OOH, I want what ever it is. I got your note and e-mailed you back. Hugs, Cindy

  7. I am glad you kept trying! The porch looks just lovely. The perfect place to set down and enjoy a beautiful Summer day!

  8. Hi again! I am sure you could make that little bag. I am uploading another one this one I made even larger. It is Sew easy.

  9. Love your porch Mona, it's inviting and beautiful. I'm so lucky to have such a porch myself and so enjoy sitting and reading or just watching the world go by.

    About your photos; think you should check the size because if they're too large (in pixels) Blogger will have a very difficult time uploading.

  10. I had not seen the porch and it is lovely. I hate when anything does not work but especially computer can drive me over the brink.

    Have A Terrific Tuesday

  13. Beautiful and inviting porch Mona! You work so hard on your house. I wish I had the time and the money to do more with mine. I have a simple deck with a few flowers potted...nothing to write home about or post! Nice job and I hope your computer is not too sick. That's one thing I am grateful husband "The Computer Mechanic" takes care of all of that stuff and everyone elses! Glad I dropped in....been busy with Obie but we are now doing well.:)

  14. HI MONA! Hey, may I come over and hang out on your gorgeous porch? What a wonderful place to kick back and read a magazine. You have such a way of pulling things together so perfectly!

    thinking of you and sending a hug,

  15. Hi Mona, your porch is very special....just a delightful and restful spot. I love the rabbit peeking out of the greenery.

    So pretty, Mona!!!!!

  16. What a Lovely porch and the fountain in the barrel is wonderful! And all your wicker is so nice & white! Reminds me that I need to put a coat of paint on mine - they are very worn! Thanks for visiting my sewing room ~ love your blog!


  17. I like what I see! Sorry you are having puter problems. I often pray to the puter Gods but lately they do not want to listen to my short temper rantings:)

  18. I'm thinking your porch looks like a great place to porch sit with some iced tea.

  19. That is so frustrating, but good for you for being persistent. Your porch is so pretty. I clicked the pictures so I could get a closer look. I love the container that you have the asparagus fern in. So pretty. I hope you are able to spend lots of time enjoying your porch this summer.

  20. Sorry about you computer! I love your pink furnature!!
    Thanks for visiting me!
    Hugs, Lisa
