Ok, now that our minds are officially in the gutter, I'll show you what my Swingin' Summer is all about.
This is my favorite place in my house at the moment. Too bad the wi-fi doesn't really work out there, or else I'd be there with the laptop too. We have a sleeping porch off of our bedroom, part of which we converted into a much needed closet (a fabulous walk-in, mind you). Many of the homes in our area have sleeping porches, which I find utterly charming.
This outdoor space needs some work, like a new floor since paint is always peeling off the current tin one and there's also a hole in it where there used to be an exhaust fan. I won't explain why we haven't patched that up yet. That recycled soda bottle rug from Mad Mats does wonders for hiding underfoot ugliness.
I found these cool recycled tin ones at TJ Maxx. They're made from food tins, and have taken on a rusty patina.
We get morning sun, so by evening it's one of the cooler areas of our home. It's a perfect way to end the day, swinging out on the porch in your pjs and then heading to bed. If only I could bypass that computer on the way, maybe then I could get some sleep.
The view from the bed (sans my swinging threesome--me, Mr. Geek, and SoJo, what did YOU think I meant?)
