Summer heaven | Classic Patio and Outdoor Space

It’s hot as hell here in New York, today, and so what could be finer than a summery cool, classical patio complete with my favorite flower (hydrangeas).  I’ll be right over!

Those lanterns are what totally make this space as smashing as it is! But I love it all!!!

If you have found my blog and are reading it, please know that I’m going to be away for the next several days, helping my beautiful mom in Wisconsin unpack her things and to hang some 30 pieces of art! (she actually has MORE wall space, now in her 2-bedroom apartment than she had in her big, very open home!)

In other news, my web developers are working feverishly to create the many pages with the data I entered into the spread sheets. Also if you type in www:// you will now land on my blog instead of my web host, Blue Host’s page. haha; or even worse, a page that says that doesn’t exist. eeegads!  That is why I need web developers! They are also working to get my mother ship site www:// back up to its rightful standing on page one. Hackers. I am sure that there’s a special place in hell for such nefarious characters!

So, please stay cool and don’t be shy about commenting, just as long as you say nice things! haha!

I’ll be back before ya know it! For us Yanks; here’s wishing y’all a very safe, happy and healthy fourth of July!

Best Wishes,
