Rhondi's Porch Party...

This is my dream porch, and my dream house. If you are going to dream why not dream big?
I love the red tin roof, and that the house is made from stone.
John loved stone for building material and the tin roof is right up his alley.
Rhondi has all the links for the porch party on her site. Please check it out. Hers will be the first link in my favorites. It is called Rose Colored Glasses. There are so many beautiful porches on this link...Some fantasy some real..
For everyone who is participating in the Photo Challenge tomorrow. The rules are...2-3 photos. The theme is keys. The only way I can figure out how to get your links on my site is leave a comment on my photos and then everyone can follow your link to your photos.
I'm sorry that blogger is still missing up.
The story of the haunted house is below...

That really is beautiful! You have a great dream! I love the stone and the red tin roof also, and also other touches like the curved railing and the little star in the peak of the porch.

Love the porch. I've lived in a house with a tin roof, and it can be quite noisy when it rains, but comforting in a strange sort of way.

Hi Nita!
I'm in love with your dream cottage, just as you are! Thanks for coming to my front porch party, it was fun and I so enjoyed your company!
I'm intrigued by the story you're writing. I'll sure be back to read more and to see more of your beautiful photos. You're great with a pen (or keyboard) AND a camera!
Hugs, Sherry

I love your dream porch and I so wish I had one with this house!

I visited 2 porches just now and I've got tears in my eyes...I need to regroup and see what's bringing on this release of emotion. I don't know if it's the love, the music, the beauty or what....
