Our Carolina Porch

Finally!
My sweet husband hung my red star!
I feel like my porch is complete now!



I'm lovin it!
  



Carolina love! My husband found this rock shaped like SC in the woods! It was meant to be!

  

Need to add some flowers soon!



Makes me smile every time I walk up my steps!
Home sweet home!




Kinda bittersweet. This will be the last few days my porch will look this way until next year.


Welcome to my little Carolina porch!

Have a great day!

Jennifer...loving the porch! Im even more jealous that you have a large SC flag on the porch. lol I have ferns on either side of my porch too. Unfortunately I have 3 black stars sitting on the porch waiting to be hung by my husband. Maybe by the end of the month to go with all my fall decorations.

Love it! I love NC, but at times I think about moving to SC. Just to get more acquainted with where I was born. Plus there's so much history and Southern charm!

Your porch is looking fantastic, and clean too! Mine is filthy! LOL! Your ferns are looking great as well. I never did find my matching flower box, so still not attached. I cannot wait to see yours with fall flowers in them! Don't be sad, be happy! Just think of how gorgeous all those fall flowers and stuff will look with your wonderful new red star. Your porch really looks great!

Sailing Simply said...

Oh, forgot to also say..WOW! That rock is amazing! It was meant to be wasn't it! Luv it!

It is very pretty and welcoming! I know what you mean about the end. I love summer. Fall and spring are okay but I really LOVE summer and don't want it to end!

Have a great day!

Nothing like a Carolina Porch is there? They just beg you to slow down and relax. Your's looks great.
Mine is a mess but since it is supposed to cool down a bit this weekend - we'll get out there and clean it off so when Autumn comes we'll be ready for her.
