Hi Chrissy!
Thanks for checking in on me and for all your support. I have SO many things to blog about but I am just not motivated... now my sis is in labor so I'll be out of the loop for a while because of that. Anyways, just stopped by to tell you that I think your deck is just lovely. Everything you do looks so charming and yet so effortless. I'm just amazed. You are a natural stylist, I think!

Take care,
Kari

Chrissy so nice to see that you came by today- I spent 2 hours at the dentist office trying to get a crown glued back on- some of the porcelain ended up breaking off when it was put back on- not a good day as such!!

you are so right about it being such a short season- my porch is still hosting wood for our nightly fires as it is still cool- I should be able to start planting after next weekend- 21st is last frost date! I am used to my daffadils and iris blooming in Feb-early march where I came from!

The picture of your porch area with the sliding doors reminds me alot of my detached sunroom- it even has the ceder shake shingles!

As always- pictures are lovely
