And we were swingin'

I've decided that my porch...

needs a swing...

maybe one like this...
this would make a good Valentine's Day present - dontchathink?
 or this one...
via
 I think a porch swing would be perfect place
to lounge around, read a book, blog, or 
just sit and veg

I've always wanted one...
and these beautiful images pretty much confirm that
I need one...





I think if I had a porch half as beautiful as these, I would never ever leave...
Ok, so hint, hint T.

porch sitting is one of my favorite summer hobbies! I love the one with the ropes instead of chains.

The hubby and I have one requirement for our first home...that it has a porch and we can put a swing there. Your home looks exactly like what I envision our first house to look like in my dreams :) xoxo {av}

Tessa said...

do you want to see one that will really make you drool??? http://nestegg.typepad.com/nest-egg/2010/08/gardenandgun.html
enjoy! who doesn't love a front porch swing??!! I'd rank that right up there with other southern icons.

Oh, and totally unrelated did you know there is a TV show called "Southland"?? No idea what channel or what it's about, I saw it pop on the screen while flipping stations. Thought of you.
xo, Tessa

I've just spent the better part of the last *hour* perusing your great blog! Your home is to. die. for. And I agree, that porch needs a fab swing! And I'm totally enamored with the pictures of your big day, so perfect...and I just happened to notice your occupation on your profile, my hubbs is a L1 student. It's pretty much hell, so I like to know people that are on the other side of the ordeal! (c: I'm pretty sure if your hubbs is the kind of guy that wanted a shotgun as a wedding present, then he and my guy would get along *so good* (c: Thanks for visiting my blog, I'm always happy to make new bloggy friends!

Cait said...

Kat said...

Katie, I just love your house and I think an adorable porch swing would just be the icing on the cake. So cute. We had a porch on our Charlotte house and I loved our porch swing. You can change out the cushions for the different seasons.

Patti said...

Megan said...

Mackenzie {Design Darling} said...

Oooh I have always wanted a porch swing! What fun that would be. Fingers crossed your T follows through : )

Tay Talk said...

Um, your home, is perfect. I dare not show my husband for fear that I will break down on my knees begging for one exactly like it.

Yes you NEED a swing. And YES, you will NEVER leave your porch after getting one. And YES, that is SO OKAY!
