Awww… the dream… the vision…
The White Porch
or back deck… whichever one you want to call it.
However…I believe my dream of having that special, cozy environment is slowly getting crushed.
Let’s take a stroll down memory lane… shall we?
It all started with the Tractor Wheels.
My beautiful curtain holders for my future white porch!
And then the trailer gate.
It fit perfectly over the door… like it was made for that space.
My little white table I built out of a broke clock to use as a side table.
I had such vision for this place.
But first things first… I had to paint it WHITE… such a concept!
So where am I at today with it?
Almost finished painting…BUT~ BUT ~BUT~
About to get REAL.
OK… see that back door? Well… there is heavy traffic going through there all the time to the outside.
Which leads me to this question…
Have you met my fur babies?
Yep… that’s them!
And if I counted correctly… that’s
12 PAWS plus
4 human feet (us) = 16 total feet…
going in and out that door all the time…
which leaves me with this…
When the dew falls and the rain comes…
it’s a muddy mess!
But I’m not finished!!
Then there are these… ICK!!
Spiders and webs everywhere making my white porch
No matter how much I spray and kill… they keep coming back.
And then I have bees, wasps, and flies that make it into this space!
Now… I ask you…
how do I keep my floor clean
(without having to clean
it twice a day)
and the icky creatures
out and off any furniture or decor I put in here?
I waited all summer long and into this fall to see what would happen in this space…
now I know!
How do you make it work with three fur babies
and two humans whose back yard is nothing but
How do people do it?
I have no answer… it’s not a space I wanted to spend any money on other than paint and a few creations here and there.
So that is where I am at today with this space.
my White Porch dream may be slowly fading…
