Like A Rose Pressed In A Book

Nice weather definitely improves my mood. Something about sunny days and liberated legs that makes the future seem rosy and optimistic. Sitting on a nice front porch in a rocker with a book (like an old lady) is another good thing. This is not my front porch in the photographs (ours is slightly less impressive), but rather that of a historic building next to our home that always strikes me as quite pretty. Porches in spring and summer are quite wonderful things...

  1. I am absolutely in love with a crochet dress. Perfect! The coral also works nicely with your hair.

    Also, LOVE porches. Instant recipe for old lady awesome fun. Just throw in some gardening and Arnold Palmers and it's my ideal summer.

  5. @uniquecollision, thank you and no; there are a number of stores (physical storefronts & webshops) that have the name "the clothes horse" & no relation to me. Tons of webshops popped up after I was blogging for a couple of years. :)
