The front porch of our 20's Spanish Mission twin is one of our favorite places to relax. I inherited the heavy mid-century redwood furniture from my parents, and it's so comfortable.

I live in a 1955 Cape Code that has a carport attached. Of course, cars today are much too large so I turned it into a porch. One 5 x 7 rug from Home Depot, two rocking chairs from Pier One (yrs. old) with pillows from Plow and Hearth, a very large Boston fern that sits on an old packing crate with a company name on it, and a few ceramic koi chimes and that's my porch. My home is one lot in from a four-way STOP so I see the neighbors come and go, both driving and walking. Can't wait for spring again so I can bring out the chairs and other decorations and begin enjoying the soft breezes.
