Appreciating The Outdoors Enhances One's Life




The happiest people don't have it all.. They make the best out of what they have.... Many times I must remind myself of the truths to these words....
Outdoor spaces allows everyone to spread out on decks, benches, chairs and enjoy the glowing moon in the evening hours with enhanced outdoor lighting to add to the ambiance... It may require alittle work keeping outdoor spaces comfortable but to me it is well worth it... Appreciating the outdoors enhances one' life... I always love the look of a bistro table as it seems to add a touch of intimacy.. Umbrellas are a must on my list also...

I have featured a lovely bistro table and a beautiful idea for a ivy screen created with chain and copper K-style gutters... http://www.marthastewart.com The other picture of the bistro table can be found on http://www.decor-medley.com/outdoor-decorating.html

I can remember my Grandmother saying..."Go outside & do something & get the cobwebs blown out of your head!".... How true. Outside is the most wonderful place to be in the summer or anytime!!
Have a Great Day!

We love to be outside all the time when the weather allows. Sometimes we are the only ones out in our neighborhood. We can never understand why someone would not want to enjoy this beautiful weather after the long winter we had! I like to think of my patios and porches as "outside living spaces". I try to make them cozy and inviting.~Hugs, Patti
