Porch Party and Red!!!

Hello!!
Today Rhondi, of http://rhondisrosecoloredglasses.blogspot.com/ is hosting a porch party.
You can post pictures of your porch, or if you don't have a porch, post your dream porch.
Here is this part of Southern California, we don't really have those nice big southern porches.
So here is my little tiny front porch. The other pictures are in and around the front porch.

They also qualify for red week as well.
I faux painted my front porch step to resemble Mexican Sautillo tiles. It had been just a plan gray cement step. We also madeover our front door. My husband added the wood pieces, and I painted. We added the calvos (Nail Heads) and the Speak Easy (Grate) So I hope you get around to all of the porches today.






Have a fun day!

Love,

Rosemary

I love your porch, the door is wonderful. we live in an old house and the previous owners put an ugly new door up. My husband is fighting me on changing it, because it is a really "good door" I just posted pics on my blog of my porch. Love front porches.
Enjoyed your blog
