Porch/Friday fences

Porch with fence, Stouffville, Ontario

An older home on Main Street has been converted into an attractive office building for small businesses.  It seems warm and cozy. The plantings and bench make it even more so.  Doesn't it make you want to find out what businesses are there?

I am linking to Friday Fences here.

Oh yes now I am very curious. It has a welcoming feel I do hope it is not a Dentist:) B

Sandra said...

This is very attractive and inviting. Nicely-composed photo, too. In Ocala's historic district there are a number of old homes that have been converted into lawyer's or doctor's offices. I'm glad they weren't torn down and replaced by some square concrete block structure.

It's certainly very welcoming!

Judy said...

What a pretty porch! I would love to sit there with a cup of coffee ;)

You were visiting Stouffville and you didn't get in touch? Shame on you! We could have enjoyed a coffee and a chat!

Stephanie said...

Looks like a nice spot to have a cup of tea and read a book,very inviting the porch.

Lovely vibrant colours EG! I like the over the rail planter boxes.

Gail Dixon (La.Belle) said...

It's very inviting. I wouldn't have thought that was a place of business.

Sue said...

What a charming place that is...I love an office that looks like a home!

=)

LONDONLULU said...

Wouldn't mind 'going into the office' if it looked like that, super charming!

RedPat said...

I does look very welcoming!
I read in today's paper that the drive-in theatre up there isn't opening this year! Another great tradition ending. ;-(

Jenny said...

What a charming porch! I'd love to sit there and sip some iced tea on a hot summer afternoon!

Kay said...

Oh, so you're not going to tell us what it is? Fair enough. I'll just picture myself on the porch with iced tea, watching the world go by.

Sharon said...

This looks like a great place to relax.

Maggid said...

Looks like a place where dreams come true.

Golly, you take fabulous photos!!

Rose said...

I like! Looks like someone else enjoys their porch as much as I do mine.

Deanna said...

I love it when someone takes an old home and converts it into something useful and pleasing!!

Jack said...

Very appealing. It looks more like a home than an office, but that is probably the idea.

Michelle said...

Makes me want to sit a spell.

Randy said...

Lovely porch.

Ann, Chen Jie Xue 陈洁雪 said...

This looks like a house in New Zealand. I guess without the snow, you can't tell the diffeence.

Carletta said...

That is a lovely inviting looking place!

It is a charming and inviting porch. Now tell us what is the business. Palm reader??? MB

Anne (cornucopia) said...

Great porch!

Nature in the Burbs said...

That would make a nice little coffee shop.

Zosia said...

What a nice and inviting porch. I miss taking a walk on an Ontario street lined with homes that have porches and looking at how the porch is decorated and how a garden is designed.
