Ta da! Da Ta!  It's all semi-finito (except for landscaping) (and some updated plumbing). Doesn't it look sooooo pretty and deluxe?


 View from the patio.  Jackdaddy did such a great job of staining.  I thought I wanted it to be more terra cotta colored, but I ended up choosing a cola color and I'm happyhappy with it.


View from the tub.  (Not sure what that weird amoeba light spot is.)  Early looks so real back there on the pirate hill...funny.


Fire pit-a-go-go. Currently filled with dead smoke bombs and used sparklers. La, La, La. 
Oh, it's sooooooo wonderful to mostly finish a big project.  I'm tiptoeing around the landscaping cuz it's tricky dicky.  I had some lovely, gracious and really fun garden friends over yesterday and they gave me some great ideas.  I'm not much of a gardener, really.  I'm a bit of a decorator, but not so good with the plants.  
I'm off to climb in that tub with a cuppa, fill 'er up with hot water and read some mags. Wellll, not really, because it's Monday and I'm actually off to do Monday kind of things, but I'm there in spirit.

  8. I'm there in spirit too! It is so beautiful. I love that color, really do. We have a large pot that color so I could tell Greg, "that's the color if we do Wabi-Sabi coolness." Oh, on plants, you absolutely need some fragrance for that tub cuppa. And you are supreme with plants!

  10. You did one of my favorite things in a yard; you created outdoor "rooms." I love that! It looks fabulous. Really worth all the hard work you and Jack put into it.
