Summer Porch 2015

Hello! It is good to be posting today.
I have accomplished a few things around the house.
In between working on my family reunion,
I managed to get my porch ready for 
Of course I will add more things as it get closer to July 4th.
But, Today is Flag Day.
I haven't yet drilled the holes for the flag brackets.
My jar full of flags will have to do.
I like decorating my front porch.
I didn't realize how much people noticed until
several people have said how much they enjoyed 
seeing what I decorate with on the porch.
Compliments are always a good incentive to keep
doing it.  Besides it gives me happy feelings
when I have an inviting and colorful porch.
My porch is tiny.  I wish I had the big porches
I have had in 3 previous homes.
Actually, there are a lot of things I miss from my
previous homes.  I like my condo,
and I have it decorated the way I like,
but for some reason, I am feeling "lost".
I will be ok, I hope the homesick, lost feeling soon 
leaves me. . I know. . .it is hard to understand.
But when you have had so many changes in your life
like I have, there is good reason to feel lost and alone.
Sorry, I think I am feeling sorry for myself.
Here is something that has helped cheer me
I am working on my Family Reunion.
I made this invitation with the help of Pic Monkey.
I am rather happy with it.
I just love the programs out there in internet-land.
They make me look like I am talented. . .
I just can't believe the response I have had for this reunion.
So many want to know where they came from.
Who their ancestors are.
And they want pictures and stories.
I hope it goes as well, as I hope.
I hope you are enjoying your summer thus far.
Please do come back again.
I completed a couple of counted cross stitch projects.
I will be showing them.
The little things are infinitely 
the most important.


  1. Karie, I love your front porch, so festive. Your reunion sounds like it is going to be so much fun. We had about 5, but the man that started it die and no one has picked it up. Almost everyone lives in Virginia, so it is hard for me to go. Plus, they have it summer and it's to hot for me. LOL
    I am afraid that I am going to be like you when I have to move. When we get older, change is hard. But you have a lovely condo and you can put your mark on it.
    Have a great week.

  2. Hi sweet Karie! Your porch is just darling!! Very inviting and festive for this fabulous summer. I wanted to let you know that I am hosting a bloggers 'meet and greet' on June 27th. Would love if you could come. A luncheon will be served and lots of conversation. lol! Please e-mail me your address and I will send you an invite.
    Sure hope you can come! Coming will certainly help you get over that lonely feeling!


I read each comment and I appreciate the time you spend to leave me one. Thank you so much.
