Fall Nesting Party {Front Porch}

When it comes to creating my house I started with the Front Porch ~  It is the entryway into the heart...It lays the foundation on which the rest of the rooms will be built.  What inspired me was creams and black ~ warmth ~ a touch of vintage & nature.

We have only lived here for 5 months so this Showcase was the perfect opportunity to get me motivated to begin making this my families House of Belonging.  Belong has deep meaning to me.  So I immediately go to what makes " me " feel as if I want to make myself at home here.  Everyroom in my home...starting with the Front Porch... needs to speak "you are safe and at peace".

Before ~ it was a stark & cold house that resembles so many houses in our area.  No traces of yesterday when homes were built with care ~ each one unique and had a story to tell.

Look what just a little time and creativity can make?  NOW THE STORY BEGINS....here I brought in the touches of cream & black ~ old book pages & sheet music for a touch of vintage ~ corn husks { which were cut down by my husband from a corn field } they are not readily available around here just yet ~ a few more weeks we will add more =) leaves & mums for nature and some old things from my workshop and VOILA!

Throughout the week I will be sharing how I put the front porch together = ) 

Thank you so very much for stopping by and being a part of creating the story of our House of Belonging from the Front Porch & thank you to the Inspired Room for INSPIRING me to just START somewhere.

UPDATE: I added a new post on the "behind the scenes" of nesting my front porch!
