TWILIGHT - NO, NOT THE MOVIE

But twilight on our deck. We love our deck. We sit out here as much as possible. It's not big or fancy, but it's a comfy outdoor space for us. A variety of seating areas, lots of plants and flowers make it super relaxing.





It's one of my favorite places to hang out.



One corner of the deck is set-up as cozy conversation area. This is where we hang out most.


A stack of magazines and a glass of wine makes for a very relaxing evening.


I love this glass cylinder taper candle holder. It's just perfect for outside use. I found it at Yankee Candle years ago. Of course, it didn't start out this color. It was originally an olivey green, but I decided it need a makeover using my can of ORB paint.


A chaise lounge for sunning, taking a little cat nap or just getting extra relaxed and comfy.

Opposite the conversation seating area - a place for dining alfresco.


We've always had big plans for this deck. Adding a roof. Then one day adding screening. Eventually enclosing it with windows, and making a three-season room. But some other expense always crops up and takes priority over our bank account.

The dining area that's down by the little fish pond next to the deck.

As darkness settles in a little more, the candles and twinkle lights add a warm glow.




We're still dreaming of upgrading our little deck someday, but until then, we enjoy every moment we spend out here just the way it is.




Thanks for visiting!

Hi. It looks a great place to sit and unwind at the end of the day or to entertain too. It looks like it has a great atmosphere with the lighting.

Save me a place! I'll put my feet up and watch the candles flicker, and we'll have an old fashioned gab fest :)
