Weekend on the Patio

We had the most beautiful weather this weekend! Highs were in the low 90's, but there was a breeze blowing that made it feel perfect. We pretty much lived on the patio this weekend-planting flowers, painting projects and playing with the dogs. I took full advantage of the wonderful weekend!
We went to Home Depot to get a few things and I came home with this pretty pink Ranunculus. It looks perfect in this white metal pot with roses on it.
I found this French Lemonade at the Grocery Outlet and had to buy a bottle. Not only do I love lemonade, but I love the French feel of the bottle.
It is a sparkling lemonade and was so refreshing with the heat we had.
The bottle has this on both sides in French. I am going to soak the labels off and use it for holding flowers or serving water in.
I found this plate with pink roses at a yard sale, there were 2 of them. The lace tablecloth was given to me by my mother in law. It has some stains but it is perfect for using outside on my little white table.
I mentioned to Cody that I really wanted a day bed for the patio. I love the look of it piled high with soft blankets and pillows, but I would really love to take a nap on it during these beautiful spring days. Look what he made for me out of a queen sized head and foot board!
I have a lot of painting to do to it and I will have to find a mattress, pillows and linens. But for now, an old feather bed and random pillows will work. We took a little cat nap on it yesterday and it was amazing! There was a breeze blowing and it couldn't have been more perfect!
The dogs love to play with the water that comes out of the hose. Grady tries to eat it. Look at the air he got here!
Bella attacks it but they love it, as long as they aren't getting a bath! They were so sad this morning when I was getting ready for work. I know how they feel, after a weekend like this, I didn't want to go to work either!

Trisha, looks like you and your family are in full springtime mode. Your flower ( won't even try to spell it ) is very pretty in that container. Don't forget to show us the day bed when it is finished. Thanks for coming to Your Cozy Home Party!! ---------- Shannon

I am on a quest now to find the French lemonade! Not only does it sound delicious, but I want a bottle like that for my kitchen flowers!
