A Favorite Spot

Wanna share a cup of coffee with me, in one of my favorite spots??? Come on over :) My carpenters were over last week and spiffed up the deck and pergola for me. They tightened all the joints and boards...


I love reading my magazines out here...


They put up a new sun shade for me, a new ceiling and rubber roof, so I can sit out here with a gentle rain, and a new outdoor light/fan...



This is where I try to steal an afternoon nap, every once in awhile :)





Love my planter...




And my colorful baskets...





My little piece of heaven on earth. Hope you all have a great weekend.

Hi Robin, I am in love with ceiling fans! I like the soft air movement they provide and am always upset when the decorators on HGTV remove them! Your deck looks so inviting and comfortable. Great job with the design! Linda
