WELCOME TO MY PORCH PARTY! JUNE 1st, 2009


Hosted by the gracious Rhondi from Rose Colored Glasses
So nice of you to stop by today. We are going to have tea and cake on my back porch by the pool. Many wonderful parties are going on today, so join in by clicking on Rose Colored Glasses to visit other participants for their porch party.

Please take a seat, relax and let's enjoy this time together.




Please enjoy a cupcake or a sweet confection.










What a wonderful day it has been. Evening is drawing near and I know you must go for now. Thank you for coming, it has been so nice to have you join my porch party. Special thanks go out to Rhondi for hosting and setting up our parties once again this year. It was fun to participate and I hope you enjoy all your visits to the other fantastic porch parties.

Until we meet again. Blessings be yours always.

It's a good thing there is a pool for the candies and cupcakes would surely find their place on my hips. Oh my. They look awfully good as well as your entire sitting area.

Hello Celeste!

You've just finished fluffing your garden so now its time to have a porch party! :-)

Ok, I'll be honest - the minute that first photo loaded my eye just zeroed on that pink cake! LoL I'm always for sweet treats :-)So I hope it's ok to have a piece of that cupcake and chocolate :-) yum Yum Yum! and then drink on iced tea - very refreshing for the summer. (Though it's been really raining here for the last few days)

Oh look! That sweet little birdie is about to take a smell of the pretty pink rose. must really smell nice for she(?) can't resist.

This is very nice to start the week!

Your decorating never ceases to AMAZE me. Your home is a work of art. An incredible canvas you keep adding amazing details to. I love it.
Come help me redecorate any time. You should be doing this full time for a living.

Thanks for stopping by my porch. I love yours but no fair you have a pool :) I love the main sitting area with the arched windows as a backdrop. I think the bistro table area is so cute. What a lovely porch - you must get a lot of joy being there in it.
