My Favorite Porch Vignettes


I love putting vignettes together, don't you?
I especially had fun creating several floral vignettes for the budget screened porch project I worked on this last week.
There are fairies on my porch watching over the flowers....
There's a sweet little doggie on the porch watching over me!
And there are deer there too holding my pen and pads for whenever an inspiration might hit me.
I really did have a lot of fun digging through my stash of goodies and creating a space where Tim and I can enjoy hanging out in the evenings.
Are you spending  much time on your deck or porch this summer?
I hope you are!
I plan to be back to share more photos of my entire budget porch redo with you early next week.
On Saturday I plan to join Katie's Little Blog for the June Photo A Day Challenge again.
I hope to see you there!
I can't let the day go by without saying,
Happy 40th Birthday to our oldest son, Jefferson!
I'm Partying Here:

    Is your son married or single?

    Happy Birthday To him.

  15. Balance your spiritual energy and get in harmony with your soul by practicing these Radha-Krishna meditations.

    Sri Gita Govinda
    -A book written in the 12th century, this is a description of the intimate loving affairs of Radha and Krishna

    Govinda Lilamrta
    -An 400 year old book which poetically describes the eternal daily pastimes of Radha and Krishna

    Ananda Vrindavan Campu
    -This is probably the most poetic and intimate portrayal of Sri Krsna’s life in Vrndavana that has ever been written.

    Prayers of Service to Radha and Krishna (Sankalpa Kalpadruma)

    Prema Samputa The Treasure Chest of Love

    And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

    The Meeting in the Box

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

    The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

    And lastly, we have a very amazing scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49

    Here is a 41 page sample of Bhavanasara Sangraha:

    The above book can also be read on your PC using Amazon Kindle for PC, download here for free:

  19. Very sweet accents for your porch. Makes it a lovely space to relax and reflect on the day .

    Happy birthday to your son. Hope it was a great one for him.


  20. Yes, and I enjoy seeing what others do! Do you ever see someone else's vignette and want to tweak it some? I hadn't had that happen until last night. LOL. Took me long enough. Handsome son...hard to believe it's possible for you to have a son who is 40!

  21. Kimberly, I love all the combinations of colours and textures and groupings you've put together and can't wait to see them steal the show on your porch!


  22. These are all so sweet, Kimberly. You have such a gift for decorating and pulling things together. Have a nice weekend!

  23. The first picture is my favorite. I have never thought to use pretty dishes to plant a flower. They look so great. Thanks for sharing.

  24. Your vignettes are cute! I do enjoy making them too! Looks like you're having some fun with the porch! Happy Birthday to your handsome son!

  25. How adorable Kimberley. They are so pretty. My sons' (twins) 41st birthday was on the 10th - you, Laurie and I all have boys with birthdays in June, LOL

  28. Love your vignettes! So pretty. Thank you for sharing. You are one of the features today at the Anything Blue Friday party at The Dedicated House. Here is the link to this week's party. Hope to see you again at the little blue soiree. Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  29. Those vignettes would make great note cards! I love how you set up your shots. We are using our porches more than ever this year. We have always been "porch people" and find it odd that there are so many grand porches in the neighborhood that nobody use. Our porches are getting a lot of use so that DH can be outside and get a change of scenery from being cooped up.
