Patio Decorating

Every evening we are home, I head out back with the littlest one for a Popsicle or some ice cream. Our patio is like another room in our house as I spend so much time out there.


Just like indoors, I start dragging things around and rearranging. Just basic puttering.

My other pots that were by my door faded long ago so it was so boring to look at this area. I put a little metal table, some candle holders I had in another spot and topped it off with a sweet little angel.


I like to light candles out here in the evenings. So I always have a few sitting around the patio.





 A little ivy plant down on the base of the table adds some greenery.

I love your porch patio, it is lovely and so warm, like all your house. Your vignette with the candlesticks and angel is so pretty, I had brick when I lived in a house, I love it and the french doors as well. Have a terrific week, enjoy the weather, fall and winter will come soon! Hugs, FABBY

Your patio looks so pretty, Elaine! I need to re-do mine for this late summer season. The plants I've had out there are all dead now, except for one. They just couldn't take the heat.

Oh yes, that patio is very good. And you're right. That place is another room in your house. Of course, like the rest of your home, you want that place to look good.
