On my Front Porch
On my front porch I have a wonderful Iron table with a glass top. My Husband and I love sitting out here. We had dinner and wine the other evening. It is so peaceful. We also play cards sometimes in the evening. So I wanted to try something different to add to the decor of my front porch. I found a wonderful turquoise bowl and a pretty Victorian candy dish with purple flowers painted on it at a little Thrift shop. I think I paid a quarter for the bowl and 2.50 for the little candy dish. Now, it's those little things that make me happy. So as you saw in the picture I planted succulents in them and have them sitting on my table. On my other table in front of my family room window I have a little wicker bird house. YES, there is a nest in it. I have been watching the little bird build it and she laid her eggs. I have really been checking on her a lot because last year a snake got my baby birds out of my hanging fern baskets. Yesterday I went to check on her and there were little tiny newborn babies in the nest. I can sit on my sofa in the family room by the window and watch the mother come and go. She is very careful not to fly right to the nest. She takes her time to scope things out so no one is watching. I am glad she is enjoying my front porch as much as I am.
I am a happily married chick to a wonderful man. We have 2 beautiful daughters, 4 shih tzu's, and 1 Great Dane and one cat. Yes we love animals. I was in the antique business for 13 years and gave it up this summer. I made many wonderful friends through it all but happy now to spend time with all our dogs and my mother who is now 83. I enjoy life and my family is my world. I enjoy just hanging out with my husband Wes and my two daughters Hilary and Hannah. I am so proud of them. I am a loving, caring, honest and true to all my friends and family. All I ask from people is to treat me as I treat them. Life is too short for stress. I am Catholic and a Republican and very proud of it. I am now painting Pet Portraits. You can go to my pet blog to see some of my work. petportraitsbybeckykidd.blogspot.com
