Trying to keep these
messy seams from parting!

I've always loved big front porches! Perhaps because when I was a little girl we'd travel each year to San Antonio to see my grandmother and all my cousins for a late Christmas! My Uncle would sit out on the front porch and smoke his pipe while all the kids played in the yard. I always loved the way his pipes would make the air smell sweet! I have vivid memories of my grandmother holding my youngest daughter on that front porch while reading to her from a book of prayers for children. We called her Meemaw and she's no longer with us but I cherish those sweet childhood memories at her sweet little home. Meemaw had a white iron glider on her porch~~I loved sitting on it as it would slide back and forth as my feet barely reached the ground. It was old and peeling but I loved it nonetheless. Now that we're blessed with a big front porch on our new home I want to find some furniture to make it cozy so someday I can sit out there and make memories with my grandchildren! I really like grey wicker chairs in particular but I'm just starting to look. Here are a few photos I've found online of pretty porches!
