On the Steps and B List

Flowers and greenery say welcome...

Blue Pueblo

If you follow me on Pinterest, you know I love porches and steps on a house.

Today I'm pulling up photos of planters to get ideas for my porch. My walkway is narrow so the planters will have to be small. But these give me great inspiration.

While researching, I stumbled upon this breathtaking porch and home. It belongs to fellow blogger Rhonda of A Blissful Spirit.  Of course, I'm adding her to my B list!


Her backyard is just as pretty.  Be sure to look at the transformations. I would have never guessed this porch looked any other way.

I think the doors on a house are its lipstick, shutters are eye lashes and window boxes are eye liner. They take something pretty and make it prettier.

Our new house has not a single flower or perennial plant in the yard. I can't wait to get out this spring/summer and start landscaping and creating our garden. These pics sure give me great inspiration! so beautiful!

Looking forward to seeing the new house that you purchase!

Enjoy your day. :)

Wow! You know flowers get me excited! I will be sure to go over and check out that house for sure. Thank you for the inspiration. How are your plans for the big move going?

WOW now that's inspiration!!

I love porches as well. We bought a 4 level back split, and we're not on a hill! So, don't ask me why the builder of this house built a 4 level back split! Anyway, as long as we stay here, we are planning on building a platform/deck/veranda (whatever you want to call it), from our front door. We are also considering building a little deck off of our master bedroom upstairs. So, I'm with ya', girl!

Beautiful inspiration pics! I've been itching to get outside and dig around, but I know that planting in March in upstate NY is a recipe for disaster. Even though it's been 70s we're likely to still catch one last frost.

Looking forward to see your new house and all you'll do with it.

Doesn't a beautiful yard make such a difference in a home. Love the planters!!

Rhonda said...

Just dropping by to say, THANKS for featuring my house on your blog! I had always dreamed of having a big ole white farm house with red doors...I finally have it and could not be happier. I am headed to prowl around your great blog!!
Thanks again!!!

Good luck with your planters. Whatever you do will be beautiful I'm sure. Your inspiration pics make me want to get my pots out and start planting...it's too early here though so I need to wait. Hope you are having a great weekend...Ann

I have a very small porch that I just enjoyed a springtime makeover. We'll see how long it lasts in the AZ heat. :)

Heather said...

Now that spring is here, I've got to do something with my outside! I love the look of a pretty garden, but I hate the work. lol!

This makes me REALLY want to spruce up my garden. It does give a welcoming presence.

Cindy said...

Hello dear Tammy,
Your images are all gorgeous, I love to see a house nicely decorated with flowers on the porch and walkway. Unfortunately, I just can't seem to do it at my house. I will try again this year, though, one of these days I will get it right!
Hugs, Cindy

I love these pictures, and that front curb appeal is so important to me too, it just says so much! :D

Vee said...

Wow...such lovely photos you've shared. It makes me wonder where that first picture is...Italy? France? It's truly special.

momto8 said...

I could look at thee pictures all day...thanks!!

Anita said...

You've found some real WOWees! That's a lot of maintenance required. And Jodie Foster's home - can't say that I've seen anything like it on a house. :)

I dunno if anyone has told you this before but your red doors are amazingly beautiful. I would love to have your doors on my home.
