Porch House


The "Porch House" in Madison, Georgia.

It has one of the prettiest southern porches. 
 The residents can usually be spotted on the porch. 
And why not?
That is certainly where I would be.





The porch wraps and hugs the Craftsman style house. 
It is furnished in brown outdoor furniture that compliments
 the yellow exterior of the house.


I cannot have a house in Madison but I could 
duplicate this arbor and climbing rose in my garden.
 All the Madison historic houses have gorgeous yards. 

The spring home and garden tour is May1-3. 
I am not advertising for them. 
They do not know me.


Behind the splendid iris bed you can see a picket fence and
 three car garage for the "Porch House"

More posts on Madison coming soon.

 Madison Christmas home tour post here.


joy and peace

  4. I've heard so many good things about Madison GA, and I don't think I've ever been there! Add it to my "road trip" list.
    Maybe they'll let me hang out on that pretty porch.

  5. I'm so ready for a trip to Madison and Greensboro. It's a quick fun trip. I was thinking about it Saturday myself and then the muscle spams in my back flared. I was pretty much out of it the rest of the weekend. Thanks for sharing this beautiful historical home. Hope CC and family are doing well.

  6. We watched our neighbor build a porch around two sides of his cottage. We watched all summer. We had porch envy.
