Relaxing on the Patio

H and I spend a lot of time relaxing on this swing.   There is a large drop leaf coffee table in front of it that is sometimes loaded with food when we have company. But today, there will just be H and I so only two plates.    I have fallen in love with pink and aqua this summer and have used it a lot around the yard.
   H and I are going to have lunch on the Patio today.   I am using my new pink and aqua plates and tea glasses that I purchased at HL (1/2 off)     The coffee table is covered with one of my favorite vintage tablecloths.      We are having a simple garden salad  for lunch today so we only need forks.   
The studio is in front of the swing "vignette" and the potting shed is to the left.
This cute little wicker table came from a yard sale ($7) and has a pull out for your keyboard.   I can sit out here and be on the computer doing a post.
This old electric typewriter came from the auction  ($5).   H has bought several of them, so I didn't feel guilty when I pinkquafied it! 
This is the wicker chair that sits on the other side of the swing.   I have some silk geraniums "planted" in the old sink that is attached to a Singer sewing machine bottom.   I don't like to do a lot of hand watering, so I use silks on the patio.

 I had aprons on the clothes line the other day...had to take them down because we were getting some rain.   I have a sheet drying on there today and  am "airing" a yellow vintage chenille bedspread.


Enjoy your day!


til next time.....

    1. I did make the two Yellow pillows in the wicker chair....they were only out for the party. They are normally in my front bedroom on the bed and I put them back right after the party...the small one is made from some pieces of lace from a dress that my grand daughter had so I wouldn't want anything to happen to that one....hugs, Penny

  5. Penny,
    Really Beautiful!! Do you get a lot of rain? We have been having a shower or so everyday so I could never keep all those things outside for too long....

    Hugs,
    Deb

  7. I love the swing and pillows also! Looks like a great place to relax and entertain guest. With all of those beautiful pieces , and noticing the vintage pink type writer which is awesome ...do you leave your treasures out everyday and through the night? What happens if a rain or storm comes while those things are outside, and you are away?
    I enjoy having some things out as well, but I always wonder what others do in a case like that? :)) Thanks!

    1. Hi Symanthia, The patio is set up for a party so there are lots of extra linens out that are not normally there. I live in New Mexico and we don't get a lot of rain so I usually don't have to worry about that..but I do have to worry about sun fading! Also, I buy most of my linens at yard sales for very little money and I leave those out all the time. Hugs, Penny

    2. Your décor is absolutely stunning...and very romantic. You are so blessed to not have SO much rain where you live, and I guess that explains it...here on the coast of Sc..We have had a lot of little rain showers pop up..it really puts a damper on our beach plans. I would love to be able to have things in my yard ..enjoy them! I know I would:)

  8. Penny - Soooo pretty! Can't wait until we can finally relax on our back deck. Hugs, Holly

  13. Oh Penny! I just love your posts! I know your photos on sight! Your personality and humor are so evident all over the place. There's a smile around every corner. Thank you for linking a couple post to my linky The POST OFFICE. You must live in northern New Mexico, that yard is so green and gorgeous. We rake dirt & gravel into patterns here for a fancy yard :(
    Have a SUNNY & cheerful week,
