I ADORE Porches ~!!

It seems like as soon as the weather starts to change I begin to think about my porch and patio, as you may have noticed by my last few posts...giggle

  I always loved my Grandma's side porch but as close as I've ever gotten to it is my patio which on the back side of my Home..  I keep thinking one day I'll figure out how to make a porch out of it.. I've had several carpenters here to look and give me estimates but as yet we havent come up with a style I like that fits my budget..

  For now I'll just live vicariously through these beautiful samples.. I have to admit I CANNOT choose a favorite.  Can You??  if you can would you mind saying why you choose a particular porch in your comment.
I'd love to hear it...

  I love the black railing and the old brick..

I wonder how my brown wicker would look painted black like this... hmmm, thats an idea:)
Marigolds are easy to grow-Right?  and who wouldnt love a fireplace on their back patio...

 I dont have to tell ya'll how much I love a country porch... hmm I am seeing my front porch like this in my dreams...
These shutters make my heart sing... I could sit out here day or night..

The stripe on these valances really draws the eyes, doesnt it.. 
  I hope you enjoyed these as much as I do..
