Dana, I so enjoyed visiting you and The Stone Rabbit on your front porch.

Everything looks beautiful and so patriotic.

Enjoyed visiting your front porch. I have always loved front proches.
We had one with a swing when I grew up. You have given me some ideas about my porch.

Thanks for the tour.

Good Morning Dana! So nice to meet you, especially as we are hanging out on our front porches on this fun morning.
Love how you have decorated your pretty porch - all looks wonderful and welcoming. The stone rabbit is lucky to have a home here!

I've also read the story of Twiggy - it's amazing how resilient a little starved kitty can bounce back with TLC - and you were great to supply that. She's just beautiful and I'm glad your dogs have accepted her.

Enjoy this special day, and visit me again soon.

Hello Dana, I really admire your post today. I love your patriotic touch. I feel welcome already. Thanks for visiting me this morning. Wait, I love the flower box and the flowers and especially your crow. I think you have a very homey touch to your whole porch. I almost signed off too soon, I guess I am excited about visiting so many lovely porches. :)

Take care, Jeanne

Thanks for stopping by to visit! Your porch looks so welcoming and patriotic. Note to self ...... must get out flags and other memorabilia in time for Flag Day!

Dana, your porch is great!! I love the patriotic theme and the black iron touches. Very pretty. I won't tell anyone about your hanging little things from the wires in the windows. :)


Your porch and home are lovely! And I am especially fond of your stone rabbit friend! Thank you so much for sharing with us!


How patriotic, I see your already for the 4th of July. Thanks for reminding me I need to start now. Your porch is gorgeous. Hugs, RoseMarie

Hi Dana,
I love your porch and all your lovely items (especially that stone rabbit). The vintage pitcher and glasses remind me of days long gone by and made me smile.
You have a charming personality, I love the way you began this post and ended it with going inside.
I love meeting new people and I'm adding you to my places to visit of inspiration (hope that's okay ;) ~What a great way to start my day. Thank you and off I go to the next porch.
Happy day!

Dana, you have a beautiful veranda. Compared to yours... mine is really just a concrete slab. ha-ha But I am working on changing that!! xoxo, Joanna

I so enjoyed your porch! Your stone rabbit is a hoot. I like the pic with the cat and bunting. The spraypainted black planter is awesome. I'll have to check out some of the MO places you mentioned!

Darling porch. You have decorated it so cutely.

Okay, Dana - I love you! You are soooooo funny! I have to have my girls read your posts because they think I've gone plain nuts (especially when I wrote about the squirrel wedding that took place in my yard), and yet here you are, a kindred spirit, talking to stone rabbit (who I think is fantastic! I have a few stone rabbits I wouldn't mind setting him up with so we could get some stone rabbit babies!)... Love your blog!...Donna

Wow, your porch is so great! I love all the flags and that little stone rabbit is TOO cute!!! xo!

Hi Dana :)

I think you just made a whole lot of new friends, including me ;) You are too cute! I love your varanda and your stone rabbit.

Have a beautiful day,

Hello Sweet Dana!

What a pleasure to come visit you and your wonderful front porch! It is a perfect front porch to kick back and relax! Your pictures are great! I love the one of you!!! Will be back to visit more!


Hi Dana, What a wonderful porch and I love the Americana decorating you have accented with. It is the perfect summer porch. What a delight. Your Old Glory Crow is adorable in the window. Perfect spot hanging by those tiny wires. SHH~I won't tell. We do what we have to when we decorate right? Lovely post!

Great veranda...and I too, LOVE your red white and blue picther and glasses. I used to live in Cape Girardeau! I may have even been to Independence before.

I posted pics of our former porch here in Pennsylvania...but I may be too late to make the formal list. Pop on over if you get a chance!


Hi Dana!
You have such a cozy friendly front veranda and I enjoyed my visit very much! It was great to see you smiling face!
Hugs, Pat

What a lovely porch. I love the stone rabbit. I won't tell your hubby about the wires, mine gets a little grumpy about those kind of things too.

We built our house 3 years ago also but it doesn't have a front porch. Our old house did and I sure do miss it. Your porch is lovely. Thanks for having us by, JoAnne

I adore your flags on your porch... they add just such a nice touch.

Hi Dana!

What a fantastic porch and accessories...I'm a bunny lover...you just can't have too many.....

I like all I see...and want to come back to read previous postings....

My twin granddaughters and I had a wonderful day together...so many sweet memories made that I hope they will always remember....

Dana, What a treat! Meeting you and having lemonade on your gawgeous veranda. I missed the sign up for this so I did Sky Watch Friday instead. Come see ~ Have a great weekend. It's gonna be so hot here....near 100 degrees. Yuk!

Thank you for visiting my porch Dana. You come back anytime ok ?

Beautiful porch! I especially love all the patriotic touches, and I love those stars as I have several like them! They are so fun to decorate with!

Also very much enjoyed your post on what was going on 40 years ago when you were married. Hard to believe that was all just 40 years ago! Happy Anniversary! Loved the post on Twiggy too. I don't blaming you for wanting to adopt her!

Greetings from Sweden!
I enjoyed visiting Your front porch! I´m on a second "tour" since I didn´t have time to visit all the on 5´th.

What an awesome visit and you are just a doll. Oh to be so slim!! Your decor is lovely. I'm working on a very red cherry kit now and trying to decide if I want to add flags, or save them for another set. xoxo
