    Your entry way is lovely. Mine is smaller ha ha. There isn’t room for a bench. Since I live in a white pine and Balsam fir forest, I make wreaths myself. The smell of the balsam is wonderful when pass through the doorway. Your entryway stone work is lovely as well; is that a stone veneer or actual stone? I love your tartan pillow; my husband wore a kilt for our wedding. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Lory.

  3. Love it! We have a “brownstone in the burbs” type of home and the front porch is tiny! Love tartan! Just got back from Ireland and love all things plaid!

  4. Love your front porch…and the house bricks are pretty too. The bench is a great idea and looks nice there. Even though our house is large and has a deck on the back our front porch is about the same size. I can only do a few things out there also. You are smart to have moved into a townhouse. I think we will have to do a similar move before long, this is getting to be too much work!

  5. Very pretty, and excellent use of the limited space. We, too, have a modest porch area but no portico to protect it. That is on my “Gotta Get ‘er Done” list. It would make decorating so much easier. On windy days like today, we’re shown NO mercy!

  6. It looks lovely! I never would have thought to put trees on the outside of the railings. Very welcoming! I think every porch should have a chair or bench. It says, “Welcome!”.
    We downsized once the kids were all gone for good to a rancher. Luckily, I have a wrap around covered porch that I love to decorate for all seasons. I haven’t yet changed from my autumn to winter. You’ve put the bug in my head to get to it ASAP. Ha!

  8. I love small spaces!I just down-sized to a small cottage and I am liking how easy its to decorate! I love what you did with your small porch, it looks cozy and delightful! Your decor spin adds such charm to it. Maria

  9. Small but o, so cozy! You have made the space shout out an invitation to sit and enjoy some cozy time on the lovely bench. Simply beautiful & love every detail!

  10. You’re so awesome! I hope I will decorate upcoming Christmas event. Have a blessed day

  11. Love what you did with the limited space Lory. It’s so stylish and inviting and perfectly decorated. Just goes to show you don’t have to be limited by the size. Visiting from Blogging Fifty.

  12. This is an amazing decorating idea. It’s a very helpful idea for outdoor decorating. Thank you for share awesome tip.

  13. Looks greats…! It looks awesome and gorgeous. This is a very good piece of furniture. I like your tips and ideas. You have shared very good details. God bless and Happy blessed Thanksgiving to you and your family. Good job and keep it up.

  14. Your porch is lovely. It so reminds me of a Brooklyn home.
    It’s beautiful

    Merry Christmas

    Much love,

    1. Thank you, Rose! Did you know that I grew up in Brooklyn?

      Ironically, our porch in Brooklyn was actually larger than this one with a longer “stoop” (the only place I’ve ever actually heard that word used), despite the fact that the house itself was about 1/3 the size of my current home. Brooklyn is truly a unique place!
