Ummmnnn but the beach was grand and the water was so warm. Now I am showered and dressed and waiting for the rest of em to get it together, we're heading to dinner and casino in Tampa. :))
so I thought in honor of the patio party that Donna is having at funky junk interiors, I just might try another post while I wittle away the half hour.
Let me take you back to the New Jersey Cottage for a minute. I understand the weather there today is totally crappy, so I'm glad I am here on the gulf coast of Fl.
But back in jersey a couple weeks ago hubbo was helping me bring furniture outside, and designed challenged that he is... this is how he left it...in a clump.
but no 2 birds tweet the same... do they?
This is how I wanted it.
Reminding of my momma's words .. "If you want something done right, do it yourself"
Which I went right ahead and did.
And then of course had my signature mojito. A girl has to have rewards.
and here is the recipe for ya'll...
This back porch is one of my favorite places to just sit with a cocktail and maybe have a nap
after a hot day on the beach, and a cool shower just one step away..
This was a mess before..You can see how I fixed that here.
While my little palm rustles in the breeze.
And sometimes, if it is a quiet enough day you can hear the waves of the ocean roaring.
Because it lies just beyond that prominade in back.
I used to see it from my deck until they put that concrete on top of those rocks. :((
Or I can grab a sliver of it.. if I stand on a chair... like the pic below
But not to worry. Lets go upstairs for a much better view..to the sunroom. :))
And how lucky am I that it is only 100 steps to the beach?!
One of these days I will dig out some old pictures of when we had this sunroom built, and post em up.
It had previously been a second story deck off the bedroom that was so darn hot we never used it. Plus the railings were a bit wobbly so I don't think it was super safe!
Now of course it is the most favorite room in our little shore cottage.
And another great spot for napping. Or for reading a good book..
..... It's a wonder I get anything done!
I will be posting at Savvy Southern Style-Summer Decks and Porches
