Step By Step

A simple man believes anything, but a prudent man gives thought to his steps.
Old Testament Proverbs chapter 14 verse 15 NIV
A friend was getting rid of this adorable shabby pink bench. How could I resist that? I think it makes a perfect "flirting bench" for our "romantic porch"! It's so tiny that you would surely need to sit closely!...and those precious footprints...well, they're just another whimsical touch from one who fills our home with love and laughter! Oh yeah, and the notches in the old tongue and groove fir wood flooring, came from a squirrel who apparently thought it would be a yummy place to sharpen his two front teeth...(or is it four ?)...anyway he notched the flooring in no time flat!
Have a restful day today!
Love, Rachel

How could someone want to get rid of that cute bench? Lucky for you though! I like your painted porch and the notching from the squirrel just adds to the character!
Have a great Sunday!

Your flirting bench looks cute on your front porch. Now that's a painted poorch floor with flair! I had no idea that squirrels had such strong teeth.

Great flirting bench! I know you... you're just finding all kinds of places to flirt... just to make it handy should the urge suddenly come upon you when Mr. Romantic Porch is about. Arentcha now?

Well, all I got to say about that is... Enjoy!!! ;-)

I love the little feet on your porch steps. Just too cute! And, the flirting bench - watch out... the squirrel might return with a girlfriend! Hugs, Patti
