The Sleeping Porch

The Sleeping Porch off my master bedroom is all ready for when my cousin arrives. It is the perfect spot to enjoy an afternoon cup of tea. I have taken lots of photos to share with all of you. I had so much fun putting it all together. I am sure i will be adding to it before she gets here.

Now i must really start to tackle that guest room. She will be arriving in just 8 days!!!

We are all so excited here at son is so looking forward to seeing her again.

She will be here just in time for his birthday too! Lots to celebrate.

Until then thanks for visiting...Pamela xo


  1. Beautiful - love the colors and the light!!!

  2. It looks so beautiful! You did an amazing job. I would be so tickled to have a room just like this one!

  3. It sure looks like you had fun! I especially like the mirror! all the little table cloths and pillow looks good too. Are you really going to sleep out there?

  4. I bet you didnt steal your roses!

  5. What a lovely little spot to airy and fresh!! I adore the mirror! Your cousin will be one impressed lady! Have a wonderful visit.


  6. Pamela, your sleeping porch looks just lovely, and so peaceful!

  7. Such a welcoming spot to sit and chat about family news etc., can picture you there together having a cuppa. Everything lovely, but especially love the antique mirror! Hope it will be a fun Birthday celebration for all.

    I'm headed to Montreal in about an hour - even hot there. Was 104 here in New Hampshire yesterday, phew! Feel's like I'm still down south!!

  10. That sleeping porch is just perfect. It truly is a perfect spot for a cup of tea!

    Can't wait to see the guest room.



  11. Pamela, I am sorry I made you homesick. I hope you have a wonderful time with your cousin. You have made a beautiful room for her to sit and chat with you.

  12. What a lovely spot for a cup of tea and a chat. Are there screens or glass or is it just open? It looks open, but I'm not sure how you could sleep with the bugs if there wasn't screening of some kind.

  13. Hello Pamela,

    I love the space you have created. Love the white and green, it looks so refreshing. It is indeed a nice place to have a cup of tea and chat. I am sure your cousin will feel very comfortable and welcomed.

  17. So pretty with a European touch! I would LOVE a little porch like that off my master bedroom. Thanks for stopping by & leaving your sweet comment. I'm following you too.


  18. So Beautiful, Pamela. I'm sure they will have a wonderful time with you.
    Enjoy the weekend,
    hugs, Li :-)

  19. Thank you, but I don't work any harder than any one of us who has beautiful homes we are proud of. I would love to have you visit anytime, I know you miss home but you are creating a new beautiful home for your family. Enjoy the weekend and visit from your cousin.

  20. This is a perfect little oasis, an blissful escape from the cares of the world. Your cousin might decide to just stay! I hope you and she have a lovely visit!

  21. Your sleeping porch looks like it is straight from another era, as though I went back in time when I entered the room.

    What a special place for your cousin to take tea. I am sure she will appreciate your efforts.

  22. Love this little space Pamela, especially the colour of the chairs.

    The lounge you mentioned on my blog is an Ikea Ektorp lounge with white slip cover.
