Take It Outside

Hey everyone! Hope you are having a good week.
I've been spending more time outside lately, especially now that my veggie garden is in full swing. It's so relaxing to meander outside and see the progress of the garden.
Our basement patio is a great place to get out of the sun and enjoy the backyard view.
It's a great place to have a cool drink in the afternoon.

The patio doesn't always look like this. These are photos taken last year where I brought a few things from inside the house to cozy it up a bit.

Here's what the  space looks like normally. My veggie garden is just beyond the Cleyera at the end of the patio.

I brought out a view vintage books, a pitcher that was my grandmother's, a vintage Boopie glass and some flowers on a napkin covered tray.

The crocheted tablecloth was made by my grandmother.

Hope you are able take a  break today outside and enjoy the beauty of the outdoors.



  1. I remember this! It looks so inviting even as it "normally" looks. I am so envious of the amount of time you have to spend outside. I have this weekend off so that's something. I just hope the sun comes back out first. LOL! I shared an outdoor setting from the past today too. Would love to see the progression of your garden sometime. I bet it's coming along beautifully. Have a great day!
