Daily Covet: A Pergola

You might find this so random, but today I am coveting a Pergola.

We had the lovliest time on the back deck of some friend’s of ours last night. They had little round lights outlining the deck, which provided the perfect amount of ambient lighting for late night cocktails on a hot, summer night.

We too, have a fabulous outdoor space for entertaining and while it’s practically perfect in every way, I have this vision for a gorgeous pergola to semi-cover our patio.  I want it to be strung with little white lights and maybe even have a ceiling fan to keep us cool when it gets beastly hot in August.

I also want it to have the same ivy growing in and around it just like I have crawling up the walls of my home.

What an outdoor paradise in the canopy of tiny lights and lush greenery!

This one is absolutely gorgeous and is like adding square footage to your living space. But maybe too-muchy like being in your family room.

I love the lights and the chandalier, presumably with votives for extra mood lighting.

But this space is absolutely UH-MAZING! I must admit however, that it may not be just the pergola that has me so in love… it might also be the stone patio and the table for dining al fresco.

Daily Covet: Mini Mason Jar Sippers

Summer weather has finally started to rear it’s head around here.

That means backyard BBQ’ing and outdoor parties will soon become a reality – especially as we make our way toward my four-year-old’s birthday in early June and my own – GASP – 40th in July!

These mini Mason Jar sippers immediately caught my eye and made me long for the lazy days of summer and pink lemonade.  I picture a gaggle of sweaty 4-year-olds walking around sipping from cute red and white straws.

But who’s to say that these cute little jars wouldn’t make great high ball glasses filled with hard lemonade for the older set?

So many possibilities!
