Front Porch Appeal - Enjoy the Dog Days of Summer on Your Porch
Issue #68 July 2015July - hot humid days, sprinklers, afternoon thunder storms, summer vacation trips, and kids riding bikes (or playing lots of video games hopefully on the porch). July is also for porch sitting and taking time to watch the world go by.
It's the perfect time to celebrate porches and Mary and I have a special offer for you. We've teamed up with our friend Leisa Collins, a renowned watercolor artist who is giving away a special gift (details below) that will be treasured for years to come.
Summer porch splendor in pinkWe'll also share our latest porchfest pictures from Westhaven in Franklin, Tennessee. You never know just how much fun a porchfest can until you attend one; Amy Grant was one of the artists who sang from a porch!
Check out the schedule below to see if a porchfest will be playing near you this summer or fall.
Fairfield Illinois held a porch decorating contest and we are delighted to share some photos.
