Painted The Deck

We have a large 2 level deck at the back of our house.  It sits in the trees and when we sit out there, it is easy to forget that we live just 15 minutes from the city.
It was stained brown when we moved here and we continued to stain it.  Then last year I got the idea to paint it, grey on the floor and white on the railing. 

It took us a year to finally get around to it but this spring our son painted it for us.
What a difference!

It turned out so much better than I had envisoned and I just love the look.

I haven't put any plants out there or decorated it at all and until I do we'll just enjoy it the way it is.

I am going to host my 3rd annual summer porch party again this year on June 21, the first day of summer.  That gives you lots of time to get ready for it.  Hope you'll join the party!  I have posted this button on my sidebar, so copy it and spread the word. If you don't have a porch, a patio or deck would be welcome too!
For any of you who are new, I'll have my post up the night before and you just come and sign up with the Mr Linky then.

Maybe I'll have my party on our freshly painted deck.....

I hope you're having a restful weekend.  That's what I am trying to do.

Missing My Puttering Time

Hello dear friends

I have been very busy getting my real estate business up and running again.  There has been no time for the fun of puttering around he house, but we did manage to go to Boston last weekend to visit our youngest grandson. He will be 6 months old on Friday. He is such a happy baby and so good.  Did I mention how cute he is too?

There's not much time for puttering but I did pick some flowers from the garden.

And put one of my unfinished quilts as a table cloth in the living room. Nothing else in the house has been changed which is very unusual for me!

Friday is our sweet daughter's birthday.  She will be 28. Tomorrow is also Thankful Thursday and I am thankful for having such a wonderful daughter!  She is a joy to my heart.
