Does your home have a sunroom? Sunrooms are beautiful spaces that do a
wonderful job at merging the indoors with the outdoors. They create a nice room
that’s versatile and comfy, allowing you to easily entertain friends and relax in
an accommodating interior. If you don’t have a sunroom you can always hire
a professional to create a home addition when time and money allows. What’s
more, if a neighbor friend has a sunroom or you plan on having one soon it’s
never time like the present to think of the many ways to embrace this charming
space and enjoy it during the spring time and beyond.
A Dining Room that Merges with Your Porch –
If you desire to have a semi-outdoor dining area all that you need to do is move
your dining room furniture on your covered porch. A covered porch is perfect
because it gives you a glimpse of the great outdoors but also keeps you inside.
Many times a dining room that’s a part of a porch is right near the kitchen,
making eating with your family members a cinch. Use this dining room area
during the spring to dine with loved ones but watch out for unexpected rain
showers depending on the patio’s coverage.
A Beachy – Chic Sunroom –
Often time furniture that’s white and that comes in other neutral tones goes
beautifully in a sunroom because the sun shines on the furniture. Use a beach
inspired sunroom as an escape and decorate it however you’d like. SofaSofa's
extensive range of UK-made footstools would go beautifully in your space and
would also create the perfect amount of comfort after a hard day at work. Put
your feet up and enjoy a nice read on a sunny afternoon. To create more of a
comfy and airy space, add in bookshelves, beach décor, and a few plants that
will make you feel like you’re in a secret garden.
Eclectic Sunroom –
If eclectic décor is more your forte then perhaps you should create a sunroom
that has a variety of fabulous furnishings. The ethnic décor and funky patterns on
the furniture will remind you of traveling all around the world. Use colorful accents
and bright colors and this sunroom will be perfect for entertaining. To keep it cool
incorporate ceiling fans and shades that will provide shade during the warmer
Sierra is a freelance writer who would love to have a sunroom in her home one
Praises of a Wife and Mommy did not write this article but agree's with Sierra, a sunroom would be fantastic, especially during spring time! I do feel blessed to have big windows in my living room which will have to do since we do not have plans to turn our porch into a sun room... not yet anyways.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
