My Favorite Spot

We spend so much of our time out on the screened-in deck. 
We eat all our meals out here when the weather is nice
and have even been known to "bundle up" a bit if it is too chilly.

The Pineapple Candle Holder
a fun "flea" find!!!

Our old pie safe.
We bought this from an estate sale
about thirty-five years ago.
We used it in the family room with our
tv inside - that was before the BIG
screens invaded our homes.
It sat in the storage attic for about five years
until I convinced hubby to bring it down to the deck.
Gives me a fun place to put some "pretties".

A good place for "Bird Watching"

We have a family of owls and
hawks living in the wooded area behind our house.
The owls start "hooting" about six o'clock every night.

An old sewing maching gets a new life -
so handy to use for serving.

I stenciled the top a few years ago
and am happy with the way it has "aged".

The trickling water makes the deck
even more relaxin'.

Kermit is a new addition this year. 
He moved into the pond this spring
and seranades us often.

Whatever time of day ---

"Quite Time" in the morning
Lunch at noon
Enjoying hand-cranked homemade ice cream
Chatting with friends
Taking a nap

...it is my favorite spot.
