If it's Saturday it must be PINK

I just swept my east patio, finally dusted everything off, and replaced my settee's slipcover for the season.

My favorite flea market flower painting comes out too, along with some homey stuff to keep us company during our early morning coffee hour.

We only sit here very early in the day before we lose our shade and it heats up. But it's a great place to listen to and watch birds in the morning before OUR world wakes up.

It has become a ritual now, this fussing over our teensy summer hideaway cottage veranda, and getting all the comforts down.

Lots of fluffy pillows to laze around on. Pretty table covers.

Our home becomes many times its winter size when the doors can finally be flung open.

Seems like we only come in to sleep.

The lazy days of summer are starting to set in.

We will have a continuous series of visits that we have named "granny camp."

Time to load the freezer with ice cream and Popsicles.

But first granny needs lots of quiet and pretty books to peruse. Shhh!

Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit!
Ciao! for now!


I'm happy to be joining How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday!

Good Morning Jacqueline - I so enjoyed your pink post! I too love coffee first thing in the morning outside listening to the birds sing and fly by still building thier nests and taking a dip in the bird bath - I'm now inspired to go out today and get my porch in order for summer. Welcome and Happy Pink Saturday!

Hi Jacqueline Sweetie...
What a beautiful Pink Saturday post and I absolutely adore all of the pinks on your settee. How devine they are. Love the embroidered table covers, how gorgeous they are. Oh and I so loved the way you had your book open to the beautiful flowers with your magnifying glass close at hand. Perfect for us Granny(s) to read with. Love it. What an element of surprise. Oh thank you so much for sharing with me today. I have adored my visit with you.

I am Country Wings, your newest follower. I love your blog, and can't wait to see what you share next. Please stop by and say hi. I would be so honored if you signed up to follow my blog as well.

I have been under the weather, and still need to get back to blogging a Saturday post, but still have to get my Pink for the Saturday.

Hope your day was gorgeous. Country hugs sweetie...Sherry
