Happy Spring!

Happy Spring, Happy Fleurs, Happy Times!

Can't wait to get my porch back to this shape, this is a photo from last year.  I did manage to clean off my porch just days ago.  I noticed a woman walk by and come back twice to look at our porch.  That was all I needed, I wanted it to look cute again.

We had a huge storm last night so I'm afraid the porch must need a cleaning again but I'm just happy My Petite Maison is still standing and didn't get blown away.  The storm was really quite scary, I was downstairs with Zeke and he hid his head (or a little of it) under my big couch... no help from him!

I'm off to investigate around the yard and around this little town after the storm.

Wishing you a Happy Spring and Sunday from here...  I have wonderful news this week from my blog I don't think you'll want to miss.

Happy Sunday and Happy Spring!

What a beauty your porch is. You may already know about the Porch Party at The Gypsy Brocante. I know everyone would love to see yours. If you don't already know about it here's the link.

I don't have porches. Mine are portals. But I would like to get them photo ready. Happy Spring!

Happy Spring to you also Tracie. It's such a beautiful time of the year when everything (including us) comes alive!

I'm itching to get my plants in too!

What a great spot to enjoy a glass of iced tea! We don't have a porch (darn) but I plan to freshen up our patio as soon as it stops raining.

Your porch is so sweet and pretty! I would love to be sitting out there with you, sipping iced tea on a warm afternoon!

I hope you didn't get much damage. We have been having thunderstorms all morning long. At least it's good for the flowers!


Claudia said...

Happy Spring, Tracie! I'm starting to clean up our porch, too.

Looking forward to hearing your exciting news.

I love those pics. I like that old metal tile too. Looks like a yucky week here, so indoor projects continue until spring wants to come to Boston.

I can see why she would come back by to take another look at your cute porch! Your petite maison is so welcoming. The storm kept me awake last night. Thankfully all of our trees survived those raging winds. I love the gentle rains...not stormy winds and downpour. Have a lovely day. ox

Sandi said...

Your porch is so gorgeous Tracie! At first I thought it was this years photo and I could not believe it! lol No flowers blooming here yet for sure, but hopefully soon!!

June said...

Tracie I am glad you were kept safe during the storm. I know that T.T.Rabbit hates storms too. He always runs in a jumps on the bed and won't get down till it's over.
Your porch is so charming and I know soon you will be sitting out there enjoying the days.
Have a lovely week.
Can't wait to hear your news!

Bonjour Tracie - just found your lovely blog whilst clicking around - as bloggers are prone to do - and I love your description "Never without a camera" because that aptly describes myself.
Your little porch is just gorgeous - I'm sure you will have it back ship-shape -it has a lovely rustic feel to it.
I look forward to visiting again

Tracie, Thank you for your interest. Our space # at Alameda is P-7 & 8. I have been reading your blog for some time now, but today I became an official follower. I am looking forward to meeting you in person. Pray for sunshine!! We don't want another cancelled show.
Your porch is beautiful! I'm sure that it will be back to normal soon. The wind did a little mischief on our porch also. Terry

Sheila said...

what a beautiful porch! I was sad that one of my favourite pots was cracked due to an unusually cold winter. Should've brought it inside, I guess.

I love your porch. At first I thought it was from a magazine! You are very talented and also have quite a green thumb. Would love to include your porch in an upcoming post I'm working on about, you guessed it: porches! Happy Spring to you!

Ana said...

Hi Ms. Tracie,
Just popping in to say hello. Do hope the storm didn't make too much of a mess. Anyways, your porch is absolutely dreamy. May the weather get better soon so that you may enjoy it to its fullest. Have a wonderful day.

Hugs and Kisses,
