Ready for Summer


Hello everyone,
Well another hot day today. I'm in the house and staying cool.
We are READY FOR SUMMER here @ My Cozy Corner. I finally have the patio ready for the 4th of July and other parties.
 The swing is dressed and the fern grotto is lush and green...
As you can see we have a new french door in our master bedroom. I love the vent doors on the side. At night we open them to get a little fresh air in the house. After having the house closed up and running the air conditioner all day,  I love to have the cool evening breeze flow into our bedroom.
Last year I took a bed skirt and made a valance for the swing. This year I found a white twin size quilt and draped it over the seats. The chaise lounge is covered with an old chenille bedspread.
A mixture of pink roses fill my french bucket. I love pink in my patio.
Pink hydrangeas are my favorite table centerpiece. 
Cool ice water is waiting in the cooler. I have some vintage punch glasses we can use. The metal tray is from Wal Mart. I need it under the cooler to catch the water. Perfect for storing the glasses too.  
White roses and blooming artichokes are in my french bucket.
Aren't the artichoke blooms amazing? 
The little tool box on the foot stool has flatware, napkins, salt and pepper and paper plates for easy access. I don't have to keep running in the house for something. I keep it covered with a little tea towel. 
Now I'm ready to bring out some snacks and dessert.
A recap of the beautiful bouquets from my summer garden.
Despite the hot weather I can enjoy my garden all summer long. 
Thank you for visiting today. I hope you have a great week.
Joyously,
Betty

  1. Just stunning. The doors are beautiful, but I'm enamored with the swing! A very clever diy.

  2. How wonderful to have such a large covered patio! I love the contrast of the white furniture with the wood, plants, and flowers.

  7. Everything looks just wonderful! I love that you covered your swing with such readily available things! I need to do that for my mom's swing! It looks like you will have a great summer!

  8. Your flower arrangements are gorgeous! I have a borderline obsession with hydrangeas and yours look great in the crisp white vase. I'd like to invite you to the link party I'm hosting at my blog www.inthenewhouse.com this Thursday. I'd love for you to stop by and share one of your posts. Hope to see you there! --Lela @ In The New House Designs
