My Mom Cave

Here we are, with Spring just around the corner, and I am so ready to spend a lot more time in my MOM CAVE! So, you ask, now where is my MOM CAVE? It's my screened porch. Oh yes, I'm an outdoor gal. Do you have a MOM CAVE? If so, where is yours? These pics are a few years old, so you all know what that means, right? Well of course, things have changed just a tad. I am always changing things up around here, just can't leave things alone. Today, let's see some before pics, and then in a few weeks, after all the pollen is gone, and I can wash down my room, I will share some updated pics of my favorite room...MY MOM CAVE!!!!
                                              Blessings,

Welcome y'all to my MOM CAVE!

My porch has a coastal feel to it and these two adirondack chairs add to this look.
Talk about comfort...these are so comfy!
 

I do allow Mr.CC a little space for his "Green Egg",
how sweet of me to share.
 
Mr.Bunny has been with me for years...almost a member of the family!
 
Okay...here it is...my FAVORITE place in my MOM CAVE...my SWING!
I have always enjoyed a porch swing...I think it goes all the way back to my childhood days at my grandparents home in the country and spending hours at a time swinging on theirs.
I'm an outdoor gal, so spending time out here gives me lots of needed MOM TIME!
One of my favorite finds, is this rustic CHURCH basket that I found at a craft show in Mississippi years ago.
Love her handle...don't you? Just look at her cute little bell!
Here are a few pics after I added some thrifty curtains made from sheets,
what do you think...are they keepers?
I found this vintage wicker rocker and a matching sofa at a moving sale at the beach...now it didn't look anything like this...with some cleaning and painting...she started to look much better. I cover the cushions with some "FLIP FLOP" fabric...adding more to the coastal look.

I spend many hours out here reading, while sipping a tall glass of lemonade....sometimes, I even do some blogging too!


 
Thanks for visiting my MOM CAVE...hope y'all come back...real soon,
 Pin It
Linking up here...

love it!! We plan on redoing our porch, extending it and screening it in although glass would be better here in Pa. Brrr!! I love the curtains, it's one of my plans too, they look great and really make it look like a living area and not solely a porch.

I love your Mom Cave!!! The curtains are definitely keepers. I may even steal the idea for my porch!

What a lovely spot! Yes, I think the curtains are keepers, and I'm sure you are looking forward to enjoying your space again soon.

If I had a Mom Cave, this would be it...the best of indoors and out! I love how cozy and inviting you've made it...the bunny and church are so cute. Can't wait to see how you've changed it!

I would so love to have a room like that. How fun! My favorite thing is the swing. I bet it's so wonderful to go out there with a good book and just relax.

Linda, I would love to have a screened porch where we could sit, relax, and enjoy the outdoors while still in a protected area. Yours looks very comfortable- love that swing! I'm waiting very impatiently for spring and warmer temps. winter has been here for way too long. :-)

What a wonderful space to call your own, it looks like you have so much space to spread out too. Love all your treasures and that swing is so charming.

We grew up with a huge screened porch, but now I just have a patio. My mom cave is the couch by the front window. Loved getting to see such a sweet space. That little church is adorable. It would be fun to try and make one.

Love your screened in porch, I'd so love to have one but I don't think the Mr. would agree! Have a wonderful evening!
