I have always loved porch swings!
I have always loved porch swings, even as a child. I just love the motion of swinging on one whether to read, sleep, knit or just sip tea on a warm Southern day. When we had our farm in NJ we had a huge porch and we had a porch swing. I would spend many hours swinging on that porch. After I worked in the garden or worked with the horses that would be where you would find me sipping my tea and looking at my Victoria magazine. I would read to the girls there when they were smaller. Now that John and I are looking for a new house to rent, I have been hoping we get a house with a porch so we can have a porch swing again. The other day he called me and told me to look at a specific house online, which had a porch and a porch swing! We are still waiting to see if it is available. There are so many different kinds of porch swings now. I went online and found a few that I thought were really nice and I thought I would share them with all of you:
I just love white porch swings and this one has the wonderful blue pillows and cushion. Just beautiful and so relaxing looking!
This aqua or turquoise blue porch swing reminds me of the islands! I can definitely pick myself on this one!
Who wouldn't want to welcome the sunset (or sunrise as far as that goes) while swinging on this lovely swing! I'm there!!
For a more rustic swing I would choose this one with it's red and blue pillows and patriotic throw!
Every Victorian house that has a wonderful porch should have a beautiful porch swing. I like the fact this home owner used vibrant colored pillows with all the white. So pretty!
Hope you enjoyed all the porch swings and I hope that the new house we rent will have a lovely porch or verdanda and we will once again have our porch swing! Everyone have a wonderful day!
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
