I love a good porch party but this year I've been so busy I didn't have time to get ready for company. Lucky for me I live in a porch neighborhood so I decided to ask the neighbors, whose porch I see when I sit on my porch, if I could borrow their porch. Thankfully, they agreed and I'm here to warn you...your gonna love it!

This house is the oldest in our neighborhood and said to be near 100 years old. Can't tell you if it's true but the house and grounds do make you want to linger. Maybe have some iced tea and do some reading.
As you enter the porch the first thing you see is the house number which has been creatively added to the front porch. It's almost like a welcome mat and measures about 1'x 2'. One of the homeowners is a an artist and she added this to the entrance.
There are plenty of corners to sit and chat.
And every where you look there is something to see.

Then there is bird village.
So far 12 bird families have moved in.
They even have church in Birdland!
And of course there is a mosaic tucked in every corner.
Can you see the mosaic bamboo wall hanging?
And the lighted tulip mosaic.
She bought an old bowling ball at a yard sale and now it's art!
We didn't visit the front and back yard but I hope you enjoyed my neighbor's porch and view. If you happen to be in the neighborhood, my neighbors will be hosting our neighborhood 4th of July party soon so come on over!
