The Portico

Wednesday, June 9, 2010



    My husband and I agree that if we could change one thing about our house, we would love to add a portico front porch.  I recently went around our neighborhood and took pictures that I thought you all would enjoy.  I think you will agree, porches add a great deal of charm to a home.  It's almost like a sneak peak of the interior.


    Last night was the first of the summer league swim meets which kept us out until well after 11:00.  Today we are off the a 5th grade completion ceremony followed by a pool party.  Tomorrow, the last day of school, is the 8th grade awards ceremony.  I do believe that June is the new May which is the new December.  Have a great day!

    2. Wow, these are all from your neighborhood? Great lookin' neighborhood :) I love a portico. I was watching "Curb Appeal" on HGTV last week and they put one on a house and it totally transformed that place.

    3. Rene,
      Thanks for sharing all these beautiful homes in your area. I love those porches. I have a small portico, but I would love the big old fashioned southern front porch.

    9. Wow, you have been busy! I hope all of the ceremonies went well and I remember the days of late night swim meets!

      We have a small front porch, but I long for a beautiful portico to give our home a sense of style and to welcome guests!

    11. Those are all unique and beautiful. Love older homes.

      May is as busy as December at our house (throw in the fact that ALL three of my kids have May birthdays and we do not have an evening to ourselves the entire month!)

    12. My husband and I are already planning an addition (one day when all the interior updating is complete...dreams!) to our new house. We are leaving a house with a full front porch on which we have spent many hours enjoying time in the wicker rockers there.
