...lovely little outdoor space

...hello sweet ones!

summertime has arrived

every year,
i look forward to creating a pretty space outside
to sit and enjoy a splash of sparkling lemonade!


i especially appreciate the fact
that in an outdoor room ~
there is NO cleaning required!

oh yah

as what is not to love about fallen rose petals at your feet i ask you??

how do you like my lovely little outdoor space so far?!
perhaps a few of you will recognize the hand painted wooden shelter sign??

an enchanted prize   
from our beloved Dore's giveaway
you can visit her blog that inspires love and peace here: Burlap Luxe
and her soulful etsy shop here: Burlap Luxe

i could hardly believe my fortune
 when she emailed me to tell me that i had won this most coveted sign!!


Dore encouraged me to let her lovely
"Inspiring a soulful place of shelter" sign
speak to my soul
and lead me to just the right spot to adorn my home...

i  am admiring it so
and have a special place in mind!

thank you dear Dore,
i think you know how i feel about this new treasure:)


how fortunate to be surrounded by such pretties,
to feel the warm sunshine ~
smell the lovely flowers,
and taste a delicious refreshment!





would you like to join me for a glass of gratitude,
here in my lovely little outdoor space?!
