Inspiring Porchs & Outdoor Spaces

I'm joining up with Jill today to share inspiring porches... and I also found some great outdoor spaces that are very inspiring to me too! I found my inspiration from some of the magazine I have.

I think I could just set here all day long, sipping on a glass of tea, and relaxing!
This picture if my favorite, because this is exactly what I'm wanting at my house! Hopefully one day I can show you pictures of my very own!

These watering cans are so good for decorating an outdoor space, and also would be great in a sunroom. There so beautiful with the gorgeous flowers in them! I'm really loving the way they have them grouped together, they make quite a statement!

These last 2 spaces I could also spend a lot of time at relaxing! There so beautiful, it makes me anxious for Spring! Hope you enjoyed the Porches and Outdoor spaces that inspire me, and hope they inspired you too! Be sure to go over to Jill and see the gorgeous porches she has to share, and visit with all of the other participants for more beautiful inspiring porches!

Most of these beautiful images I recognize as those I also saved in my Inspiration Books from previous fav mag issues. I never tire at looking at images that not only once inspired me, but continue to inspire me!

Hi Daphne,
I could live with any of those beautiful porches and outdoor spaces! In fact, it will be great just to be able to sit outside and enjoy the warm weather.

Again, you and I think a lot alike! ... I could sit on that porch for a long time and just watch the rose petals fall ... can you imagine what it must smell like? Incredible! And the pathway with grass growing around the stones and the lace hammock and the ..... wow, it's all wonderful!

Thank you for sharing your inspiration, Daphne.

ps. I've been responding to your comments ... and I just realized you haven't been getting them ... I'll have to forward them over in an e-mail sometime ; )

Those first two photos speak to me! Oh my gosh, to have those beautiful flowers winding their way around the porch would be like heaven.

I finally got linked up after the linky thing gave me fits. :0)

Hi Daphne!
I checked my email and didn't receive one from you. Wonder where it went??


Wanda Metcalf said...

How romantic and wonderful! The watering cans are really pretty I think I will steal the idea but don't think I stand a chance on getting the same effect-- beautiful!

Beautiful images they all have a very natural feel to them, old world natural I love it! I got your note and I hope you are feeling better!

Victoria said...

Those are gorgeous! I'd take any one of them:) We live in an apartment so all we have is a small deck but I've tried my best to make it pretty and cozy out there. Right now I'm growing Morning Glory and have been pretty successful with them (knock on wood) but I'm really anxious to try my hand at roses in a container! Thank you for sharing and thank you for stopping by my blog:)

I would enjoy sitting in any one of those outdoor spaces right now, Daphne. We were teased with 50 degrees yesterday and today's high was 31! I guess I should be glad the snow is gone and I can at least see the grass, but I am really looking forward to some flowers to come up.
