Lovely Summer Vignettes

As all of you know John and I are living in an apartment until our new house is built and while there are some really great outdoor areas at the apartment complex, I have been dreaming of things I would love to have at the new home.  I of course, resorted to looking and daydreaming on pinterest.com and here are some lovelies I found:

(all photos via pinterest.com)

 I could just see myself having some tea with my daughters or a friend on a lazy summer afternoon!
 John and I miss our garden pond with our little goldfish in it and I thought this would be a lovely replacement.  Very serene!
 This conservatory is just gorgeous!  Who wouldn't love dining in there or having a tea party with friends!
 I really love this idea.  Those lights in the pergola are just great!  They would be like little stars shining down on your while you eat alfresco!!
I saved this photo for last.  If I had this hammock with the cute little table next to it, I would never leave the hammock!!  I could read, knit and just wile away the hours.

I hope all of you have a special place that you like to go, if not maybe one of these would work!!

They all look great! I miss my pergola with those exact same lights!

Debbie said...

I love my sunporch...especially on a rainy afternoon.

Sherri said...

Penny, some day soon we will have pergolas again with lights!! HUGS!

Debbie-you have such a cute sunporch, I would love it if I had it too!

Sigh... I love that garden pond. I'd be there all the time if we could have something like that.

I could thoroughly enjoy sitting in that Adirondack chair by the pond, daydreaming about life. Gorgeous pictures!!

Just a quick note to say I emailed you to say that your email might have been hacked. I got an email, along with other names, from you with nothing in subject line, and a clickable link in the email itself, which I didn't click. Good luck! You'll need that calming space.:<)

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
