Dining Al Fresco…

The past couple of sun filled days have been blissful. Although Grace has been home from school with a cold, I still made sure we spread a quilt out on the lawn and rested in the sunshine.

In the summertime, we spend most evenings outside, grilling fresh food, sipping cold wine and taking it all in. I’m longing for those days…so I thought I would share some simply gorgeous images of outdoor dining done to perfection…

Dreamy right? How precious is this last one? It’s like a sweet fairy ring. Okay, I gotta go get me some more Vitamin D!

Breakfast Nook Ideas

So, we get the keys to our new home on Thursday and I can hardly contain myself! Can’t wait to get in there and start designing. My mind is a whir with ideas…

In our sunny kitchen we have a lovely breakfast area. It overlooks the garden that backs to a peaceful forest.

(I’m gonna be taking pictures like a mad woman)

My goal for our breakfast nook : fresh, romantic & relaxing. The perfect place to sit, sip tea and flip through a magazine or have a casual family meal.

Anyway, I went collecting images for inspiration.

I’ll be taking before and after pics to share with you all.

Have a fantastic Tuesday!
