My New Red Door and Rhondi's Porch Party

I proudly took these photos right after I painted my front door red...a life long dream. : ) You can see the rest of the porches at the party by clicking here.









Thank you Rhondi for hosting this party. The perfect time of year for it!

We painted our front door red a while back. It is like lipstick for your home. The porch is such a lovely place to sit and relax.

Love your porch. It seems very American! The colors remind me of the flag. Very inviting especially to me. Thanks for your invite. Happy porch party!!!!

Well of course your porch is just adorable. Our porches could be best friends. We should start a red door club, forget the red hats! I will definitely mention you on my tomorrow post. Love all your etsy stuff. Mimi

Hi M.L. :)

Your porch is sweet, simple and cozy all at once. The red, white and blue is perfect too :)

Oh and don't worry about losing touch, I kept meaning to come by and haven't caught up enough yet to get around to everyone myself. It's been really busy here since we moved and my blogging is not back to where it was even now. I know where ya are ;)

I hope your mom is doing well. I'll come back read later after the party.

I love your red door. And, it's great how you coordinated other reds to really tie it all together. Boy, I have so many new ideas to try!!

I enjoyed your Porch Party!

I love the patriotic colors on your porch and the red door looks great. You have the same rocking chairs as we do. Thanks for joining the party!

Willow said...

It looks like you are ready for the 4th. Your porch looks so pretty and I love how you decorated it.

Cindy said...

Your porch and chairs are beautiful! You are ready for the 4th I can see, that is so nice. I love the Americans for that. Canadians celebrate on the 1st, but there just isn't the stuff available here, with the maple leaf on it, like you folks can find with your stars and stripes on it. I have actually made several things for myself, I think it's important to celebrate your country.
Hugs, Cindy

It's official! Red is the new Black... love your colorful porch decor!!
