A plain front porch can be transformed into a place of serenity and beauty with just a few simple touches. I found an old ladder in a junk pile and leaned it into the corner by my front door. I hung a plastic bag of flowers on it and placed cheap flowers all around the porch to accent the ladder. Everyone that comes comments on the ladder! Sometimes I wrap silk ivy or fall-colored leaves around it. The possibilities are endless.

Now that IS soooo cool.
I think I could use that idea. Except I live in the city and I am on the first floor. Might be too tempting for someone who would like to take the ladder and try to get into my house...if you know what I mean????
Gone are the simple days of just letting things be...if it wasn't yours...you didn't bother it.
Would you believe this???? Last fall, in our state the governor had started a program where each city were given trees on the streets that needed trees.
You would not believe the stories I had heard about about folks stealing the planted trees, and selling them for drug money!!!!!
I could not believe it!!!!!
Your porch looks very inviting and "homey." You've got a good eye, both in decoration and picture taking!
