A Soft Place To Land

by - Sunday, November 23, 2008

We finally picked up the cushions we had the seamstress make using outdoor fabric we bought from Designer Fabrics. She did a great job and the cushions have nice piped edges and straight seams and patterning. I can't wait to use them...but we'll have to wait because two inches of snow blankets the ground right now. Next summer, we'll paint the whole porch in white and add some beadboard on the ceiling. I can hear the summer breeze already!

    I thought I was looking forward to the holidays, but looking at that loveliness makes me want to fast forward to summer! It's going to be so beautiful out there.

  8. swedaisy - the beadboard is my favourite part too. I think I'll be painting it haint blue, just like on Southern porches.

    jbhat - I can't wait either! :)
