Welcome to My Front Porch Party

Please join my front porch party. Our party hostess for today is Rhondi from Rose Colored Glasses. Stop by Rhondi's porch for the links to neighboring parties and wish her a happy birthday.
Thanks Rhondi, now let's party!

Here is my porch just waiting for a party. The rain finally cleared and the weather is comfortable. The flowers are in full bloom and the soda is on ice. Looks like we are ready for a few guests to drop by.

The rocker in the corner is a gift from my mom. It is from the deep south. Just like a few of my roots. So lets have some good ole' southern hospitality. Have a seat and help yourself to the strawberries.

Now that's more like it. We can't have a party without guests. It turned out to be a beautiful day. I have two very special guests to share my porch with.

The Grand-Princess is here of course. She may be a little over dressed. But this was also her final fitting for her new Tutu dress. Yes I know that this is a bit much for a 6 month old baby but you have to know my daughter (mommy). Well, I have to admit the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree.

The grand Princess sitting with her great grandma (my mom).
Mommy said she wanted a Tutu style dress for the princess and great grandma stepped right up to the task. Yes this little diva not only has a dotting grammy but she has great grammy too. Do you think we will be in trouble later? The word spoiled may come into play.

Help yourself to a strawberry or two. They look so yummy in all that beautiful pink tulle. The perfect treat for a princess if she only had teeth.

Take an Italian soda and come sit a spell. Put your feet up and enjoy the music. I am so glad that you came by today.

This ottoman was made by my dad and covered in cottage chic fabric by my mom. Thanks mom and dad. Just perfect for the porch. Love, love it!

The princess picked a beautiful rose from the garden and would like you to take it with you as a thank you gift for visiting the porch today. The rain cleared just in time for our party but left us with beautiful droplets on the petals. Isn't nature fabulous!

Love you all and thank you for stopping by.
You are welcome anytime.
