Friday Five/Fav's

Happy Friday my favorites in this oh-so fabulous blogging community! (haha too much?) I hope everyone had a fabulous week and has a great weekend planned. Today, in honor of the sunny, warmer weather we have coming in, I want to do a porch theme with must-haves for every porch! 

If you follow me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook you've seen that Seth and I have enetered our new home in Southern Living's Porch Club- Porch Makeover sweepstakes. Yay for SL & yay for sweepstakes! Anyway, voting is painless and simple and we would love it if you hopped on over and gave us your vote! Our entry is titled "Jessica, Burkeville, VA" and has a collage of our poor porch (bless its heart) We've been dominating the inside so much that we haven't focused on the outside yet so this contest would be fabulous! (there's 100's of entries but it's still fun!) 

Thank ya'll and happy weekend!

Linking up with Christina, April & Amanda












Here is the link to the contest if you want to give us your vote! Thanks again! :)

A must have for a Southern porch? Ya'll know I adore all things blue- so I'd have to say the blue porch floor/ceiling is my favorite accent to any porch! Porch ceilings/floor were painted blue to ward of evil spirits known as Haints that were not able to cross water. Southerners also said it resembled Heaven!












Another perfect porch accent? Rockers! You gotta have some sort of rocker to sit a spell and relax.












How about a nice porch swing somewhere? That is a must for me as well!












And lastly, you must have some beautiful plants and planters for added color!

  29. I love those porches. A bunch of the houses (including my own) here in Nashville are more traditional ranch style. I love the ranch style and the character but they don't have porches.
