Every morning, I get up have my tea or coffee, kiss my husband and the dog ( sometimes not in that order!) and check my blog. I love to read all of your posts and see what is going on in your parts of the world. I follow many Scandinavian, British and other Europeon blogs so it is nice to see what the weather is like there. I have noticed how my American friends are having such great weather already. I live in Southern Ontario and our weather, although nice at the end of March, has not been that great.

The garden is slowly growing but wet and cold has prevented me from being able to accomplish much outside. Instead I have been planning. There is so much I want to get done this summer, ours are quite short so I cannot wait to get started. The sun makes me think of the garden and the garden makes me think of outdoor seating which brings me to todays post........PORCH SWINGS!

How I would love a Porch Swing. As you know I do have a lot of porches but the only one that has a roof where I could put a swing, my husband says would not support one. I am not giving up! I love the look of them. They make some nice new ones but I do love the idea of making one out of architectual finds or from old chair and benches like these two.

This is a gorgeous wicker porch swing. There is just something about them that reminds me of the Old South. Swinging on the porch on a sizzling summer day sipping iced tea.

How wonderful it would be to listen to the birds sing as you swing away. I love the idea of this refurbished door swing, who doesn't have an old door around. And this beauty beckons me to sit.

Oh look at this one! It is like being up in the trees. A Porch Swing you could sleep on......heaven!

When I saw this I thought "Well, I could always have a swing in the trees, I have a lot of those." So if I do not get my porch swing this summer perhaps I can talk my husband into one of the very least I will get one of these!

  1. These are all lovely. I could see myself, with a good book, on the one you could lie on. And how romantic does the tree swing look?

  2. All these porches are just lovely!! I'd love to have one as well, although I would need a porch first, ha ha ha

    A girl can dream!

    Have a wonderful weekend!!

  3. What a dreamy post ... thanks for sharing. The last picture reminded me of the swing at my Grandpa's farm. Oh what fun we had and what wonderful memories.

    Happiness to all.

  4. Love the swings Sue, great post and photo collection of wonderful types of Swings.

  5. Oh dear Sue,

    What a lovely thing to do, to sit and relax, to read, to dream. We are having good weather out here in the US, but today the necessary rains are here to allow the buds to flourish and give us joy. Much like the trials and tribulations of life, isn't it? Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Anita
