A Fire Pit That Makes Me Smile............

This photo captures what I would imagine was an amazing evening!
Awe.....It brings back memories of our family gathered around the fire pit 
roasting marshmellows at the river.

What Would Ellen do?

Back in May 2013, both Cote de Texas and Elle magazine featured Ellen and
Portia's home. While pondering ideas for our outdoor area,
I thought to myself, "what would Ellen do"? 
 These chairs photographed under the amazing trees appear to have an adjustable back.  
I love the thick dark charcole cushions mixed with the wood....
We want a sitting area on the deck but finding confortable furniture is a challenge.
 We've found one in Georgetown but it's in a dark wicker I perfer the lighter color. 

I continue to like the distressed table with wicker chairs, this would be ideal placed down by the pool.
I wouldn't mind these lounger chairs...
(This particular photo was from a previous home, 
it's a much more contemporary home than the horse ranch.) 
Awe... so that's what Ellen did!

I promise Spring is Coming!

 I continue to look for inspiration for our many projects.
This week we were able to meet with several pool companies.
We anticipate receiving their purposals next week to start the process.
"Dream a little dream with me...."
Have a wonderful weekend!

A Possible Pool Design

After looking at pool designs over the last year we finally sat down
with a contractor to load in our wish list into a software application.
Here's a good representation of what we're imagining our pool design to be. 
It's a work in progress and it's fun to dream!
Everything was SO much fun until he "hit" the sum button.
Have a great week.

Monday Morning Inspiration

Hello everyone I hope you had a great weekend. 
I spent all my time resting and relaxing. 
I'm pleased to say I feel so much better and I am refreshed
and ready to have a productive week.
We are finishing up the deck and now researching deck furniture.
Last week we started visiting with a few pool contractors as well. 
 I'll continue to keep you updated on our journey.
