Welcome to my first ever, blog! Many thanks to all of you who have poked, prodded and assisted me down this long, winding corridor that leads to Blogville…you know who you are! Now, having finally gotten up the nerve to dip my big toe into the fast moving current of Blogland, it seems only fitting to begin a blog titled “Between Naps on the Porch” with quotes about, and views of, some great porches. I’m making plans for some fun and hopefully informative future posts and I’m am so hoping you will come back again soon.
Now for a little tease. In an upcoming post, I’ll share how easy it is to turn your photos into little works of art, without having to purchase any special software. It’s really easy and fun…I’ll try to get that posted soon!
Now, just sit back, put your feet up and let’s go relax a while on some wonderful porches.
Friends are the pillars on your porch. Sometimes they hold you up, sometimes they lean on you, and sometimes it’s just enough to know that they are standing by. ” (Anonymous)
Behold a woman! She looks out from her Quaker cap, her face is clearer and more beautiful than the sky. She sits in an armchair under the shaded porch of the farmhouse, The sun just shines on her old white head. Walt Whitman, from Faces
“The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch swing with, never say a word, then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation that you ever had.” (Anonymous)
“The porch is like the brim of a hat. it shades you, but makes it possible for you to have an uninterrupted view of the surrounding landscape.” David Heymann, American Architect
“You can run with the big dogs or sit on the porch and bark.” Wallace Arnold, Major General, U.S. Army
“What was it Clarise had said one afternoon? No front porches. My uncle says there used to be front porches. And people sat there sometimes at night, talking, when they wanted to talk, rocking and not talking when they didn’t want to talk.” Ray Bradbury, Author, Fahrenheit 451
Thanks for your visit! I would be so happy if you would take a moment to leave me a comment and sign the guestbook before you leave. And, I’d love to hear your thoughts concerning what you would love to see posted here. I’m thinking we might need to have a Tablescape Tuesday…what do you think?
