Springtime Inspiration: Front Porches, Wisteria Vines and Aqua Doors

Welcoming Victorian Entrance

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter weekend. We attended a Saturday night Easter Worship service with my Sister-in-law Gina and her family, participated in two worship services at our home church, spent the afternoon cooking and the evening at Gina’s home for Easter dinner.

Years ago Gina said, “Let’s have Easter at my house because it matches!”  And it does! Inside and out. :)
