I have enjoying peeking at Rosies's Porch coming together for spring.. it just looks so fabulous and inviting! We have a sun room/porch off of our living room. Although it has been brisk and chilly, the sun beats in during the afternoon and warms it right up. I love sitting out there and pretending I am on retreat.. the full windows (which soon will be swapped for screens) just let you view the entire back woods behind our home, and I escape out there in the evenings. Soon we will be able to eat our dinners out there and enjoy the birds, green grass (my husband keeps a mean lawn!) and the breeze. so, welcome to my haven, no fluffy couches (Would love when $ allows) but lots of good feelings.. unless dead animals hung on the walls offends.
The image above gives a peek at a coyote that my father in law got a few years back. They are wonderful majestic creatures, but in these parts they wreak havoc on the deer populations, especially during hard winters like the one we just had. The deer can't run well in deep snow and the coy-dog packs just run them dead. We also have a large moose rack from my hubby, and one of two boar heads that will hang in there. The large metal trout, hubby and I purchased when we were married. In the first photo, you can just see the paddle of an enormous oar, also from my in laws. So for all you animal lovers, I apologize, but we are animal lovers too.. just served up with gravy, roasted or braised in white wine.
And yes, we still have snow.
