My Front Porch

The North End of Boise is front porch heaven, 
and my husband and I are front porch-sitters. 

We often sit here on our front porch after work, sipping a glass of wine or beer and enjoying the mild Idaho evenings from spring through fall. 
We chat with our neighbors and people strolling by with their dogs, as the sun sets beyond the trees. 

It's one of the very best parts of living in The North End.

Tucker says, "Hello!" 

Thanks so much for coming to sit a spell 
on our front porch.


  1. Your porch is lovely, looks like the perfect place to relax with a nice cold beer!

  2. What a peaceful & lovely place!
    Tucker is an old cutie!!!

  3. Laurel you have such a comfy cozy front porch. Right now mine is piled high with the someday garage sale things!

  4. What a relaxing and beautiful spot! You must get such joy from sitting there and having nothing but pretty things to look at. All of your projects are awesome and came together in such a lovely and cozy way. I would enjoy it all sipping homemade sweet tea myself, yummo!:)~ Jamie

  5. What a warm and friendly front porch... even with the guard dog on duty! Thanks much for the speedy links to your tutorials and for your sweet comments on our fairy garden! :)

  6. I have porch envy. Looks so inviting, Love the pedestal birdhouse it looks adorable.

  7. I love your front porch so much!!! I grew up with one, and though it was pretty far from the road (in the country), we loved the shady coolness, the porch swing, and watching our friends drive by on their way to or from town. Sounds like you really enjoy your time there in the evenings, seeing your friends and relaxing. Thanks for sharing it, I found your link at Between Naps on the Porch. Hugs ~ Mary

  8. Ohmygosh I could just picture myself relaxing here after work each day with a nice glass of wine. So gorgeous! I love it!

  9. Your porch so beautiful, thank you so much for your nice comment on my blog you have a gorgeous home.

  10. What a lovely place to stop and sit a spell ...

    ... where we would wile away the evening with our glasses of wine and laugh and share stories of our homes and our families and crafting mishaps ...



  11. Your cottage is just adorable and so is the porch. I love all the french accents along with the white. Great mix of texture and color.

  12. Your home is absolutely charming!! What a delight! Love your sit a spell sign and all of your other special touches!! I would be sitting out there too!!!
    Thanks for sharing your loveliness!

  13. Love your porch and all the little touches. It makes it feel so welcoming. Found you through Rooted in Thyme


  14. Thanks for the tour and the invitation to sit and enjoy. I love this style of house with a porch you can sit and enjoy. We don't have this style of home where I live, but it does remind me of my childhood when we'd go back to MI for visits and the homes had wonderful porches like that. They have always intrigued me. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  15. You have a wonderful front porch! It looks so cozy and inviting. I love the little bird and bee details.

  16. I think every home needs a porch and this one is just so pretty! I definitely want to come a sit a spell!
