It's a Porch Party. Welcome to my Porch! Rhondi at Rose Colored Glasses is having a Porch Party and you are invited!

Remember the days gone by when neighbors, friends and relatives
sat on their porches?

I invite you to come and sit a spell...........................

Kick back on my rocker.......................

or pull up a chair and relax.........................................

grab a cup of Lemonade......................................................

or just sit a spell and stare out at the Hydrangeas getting ready to bloom......

Share some laughs and solve the world problems................................

Ya all come back now.....................Goodbye!

Love, Anne Fannie

My Dear Miss Anne Fannie!

Your Front Porch looks like it is out of a magazine, but I know personally it is not, but by all means could be and should be! It is gorgous in everyway! And an inspiration to all who come to visit! Make sure you wave hello to my dear hubby the next time he drives by going to work! I must come soon and sit with you for a spell!

Love ya tons,
Maryjane xo

Hi Anne Fannie,
Thanks for visiting my blog. Sorry my "porch" post wasn't ready yet; I'm a little slow.
Your blog is fun! I'll be back. We used to have a turtle too.
Hugs, Laura

What a gorgeous home and porch! Your colors are pretty much what I have picked out. (Do you recall the paint color of your door and chairs?)
I love the brick floor. Your hedges leading up to the steps are so inviting. Well done! I could dawdle here all day!

Rue said...

Oh my! That's a gorgeous porch!! Your home is beautiful :)

My mom had an old farmhouse that we restored a few years back and we named it green acres too.

I read below that you want a chicken. I want one too and my hubby won't let me have one either! What is it with men and chickens?? LOL

Thank you for sharing your porch. I've so enjoyed it :)


Rue said...

Oh and I forgot to tell you that the link is wrong from Rhondi's blog.

Your porch are glorious.... do you have 2 French doors off the front porch? I love the look you have really pretty..
PS I have chickens... they really are fun... keep trying to talk your husband into them

Linda ★ Parker's General said...

So gorgeous--
ours is much simpler. In fact, we don't even sit on our front porch. We had it built small to aid people trying to find a seat!!They are all out on the patio! The sign out front says, "Please join us on the patio". It also says "No Smoking"
I would love to sit on your porch for a spell.
'Come sit with me by the garden's gate.
We'll chat a spell. My work can wait.'

Hi Anne Fannie! Thanks for stopping by.
Love your porch and your flowers are just gorgeous.
I also want chickens, but hubby says we need to get our chicken coop first. Well, its a start, he has agreed. Now for the next step.
Loved coming over and will be back again.

Oh what a beautiful porch! Everything is just lovely! I love that blue on the chairs and on the door. It really makes the door stand out, and its perfect with the color of the bricks. They play well together! Thanks for sharing this!

Anne Fannie,
Well, first of all Green Acres is the place to be...
Your porch is lovely and all of the items on the porch are beautiful too. So much room and I love the bricks.

I would love to come sit a very long spell there, especially with all the animals you have. No Arnold the pig though? I'm going to come back and read your posts some more and see about this 100% Italian (lucky you - do you have an authentic gelato recipe??). I bet so ;) I also want to read up on all the four-legged friends you've got. My I want a parrot too - we had a yellow naped Amazon when I was a kid - quite a personality. In other words, you've guessed my animals are spoiled themselves too - the only way to be.

Okay, I came over here to gush about your beautiful porch - and it is - thanks for sharing!
Happy night!

Miss Annie Fannie, I don't know how I missed you earlier today. There were so many of us porch ladies today that I visited in shifts to give my fingers a break.

Your porch is lovely and I'm so glad you visited mine otherwise I wouldn't have gotten to see yours!
It is beautiful. I especially love the little hen!
It's so nice to meet you!

Cathy said...

Anne, Your home looks like a welcoming Bed & Breakfast. I would love to come and sit a spell. Oh MY, what beauty you have shared with us. I just adore it. It looks like it belongs in a magazine.


StitchinByTheLake said...

Oh Anne I absolutely love your home and your garden and your flowers and your yard junk! I scrolled back through your blog and found your vintage hankies - I collect them and have used some for a kitchen valance in the past just like yours! I've also used a few to make a quilt for one of my granddaughters. I put them around candles and tie them up with raffia or I lay one on a table and sit candles on it.......I just love them everywhere! I visited a quilt store once where the owner had tied them all over her Christmas tree - it was so wispy and romantic looking! Wish I could think of some other ways to use them - any ideas?

Nancy Jo said...

That is some porch you have there!! I just love it. I need a bigger house so I CAN have a bigger porch!

Ruey said...

Oh my gosh - I'm so glad you left a message on my blog so that I found yours! Your porch is divine!!! And I have to say that I especially love your fur babies down the side! We once had a shih-tzu just like yours, and I also have a photo of one of my kitties that has those same c-r-a-z-y eyes as yours!! Glad you liked the buttons and thanks for stopping by!...Donna

Farmhouse Blessings said...

Are you kidding me? You actually LIVE there. Your porch is absolutely breathtaking. Someone needs to notify the magazines. They are missing out on this!

I planted my very first hyrangea last year and it is full of blue blooms this year. Such a lovely old fashioned flower.

Thank you for your sweet thoughts about Colton. Yes, I am so very thankful for all my sweet blogging friends who encourage and support each other. And so very thankful to the Lord who keeps us in His care!


Edie Marie's Attic said...

Hi Ann!
I love your front porch! I had such a wonderful time visiting with you and sipping my lemonade!
I especially enjoyed seeing Evil Kitty in his chicken hat! I was in hysterics laughing at him!!
Thanks for stopping by and having tea with me! It was so much fun!
Hugs, Sherry

Hello Anne Fannie, would you believe I am still trying to visit everyones porches. We have company that are here for ten days. My time isn't my own right now.

Your home and long...porch is so beautiful. Your decorating is so lovely and appropriate for the style of your home. It is the kind of setting I just love.

Thank you for visiting my mountain view. That rainbow happens a few times a year. It is an amazing moment when it happens.

Take care, Jeanne

Aunt Jenny said...

Beautiful Annie!!! I love your pretty and inviting!! Mine needs work for sure...I wish I had a nice big porch. I have to get by with my little back yard patio for my "sit a spell place"
I LOVED the chicken hat on the cat!! The first time I got goats it was after leaving little "goat hints" everywhere for my husband for 6 months at least...he didn't want them and I did...he had little stuffed goats in his jacket pocket, little wood goats on the dash of his car, goat stickers in his notebooks, you name it...he finally caved...maybe a hat for the dog too???haha
Have a great week!!!

Shelley said...
