~ Outdoor Spaces

Dreaming of cooler weather.....

Many people think of outdoor spaces in Spring. The weather forecast today announced that the temps would be in the 60's by the middle of the week. The thought of having the back door open even for a small part of the day makes me giddy.

It is Fall that makes my heart jump for joy. I know it's because there is not mean snowed-in weather on the heels of the mild fall. Sometimes a freeze to make us remember that tropical plants need a helping hand to survive. But mostly, it is just a time to breathe in the cool air and forget the heat for a few months.

Wouldn't you love a special place like this right off your bathroom door? I'd change the seating so that there was one or two chaise lounge chairs. Let's make it practical as well as beautiful.

Back to trying to actually finish the work in the studio. I have one more small dresser to paint. Then I can get more off the floor. It's hard to believe how fast I can fill up a drawer and or a shelf. Then look around, and it is as if the "stuff" and supplies just multiplied when I turned my back.

See Y'all Soon!


  1. Oh I am so with you and really looking forward to cooler weather. I've been getting flowers planted in pots and the patio all scrubbed. I am so ready. Have a super day. Hugs, Marty

  2. I love to throw the windows open to these Fall breezes ~ I think it makes the house feel fresh again. Lovely pictures, Donna! I would love an area like that right off a master bedroom/bathroom. So nice to start and end your day.

  4. Beautiful pics and YES, I'd love to have a space like that. Up north here it sure is getting cold.....down in the 40s at night.

  5. Oh I would LOVE this...I can picture myself laying in a chaise in my favorite fluffy robe, reading a magazine or reading my favorite dreamy!!!!
    everything vintage

  6. My neighbors recently put in an outdoor area like this. It's gorgeous and I'm jealous!
