    Erin this is beautiful! What a great idea and so doable on a budget! You should share on the #FreshMarketFriday Link-up where we share our passionate creations!

      Hi Crystal. Thanks for coming by. Yes, this was definitely doable and now we have so much more usable space in our yard. I’ll check out the party!

    Erin, this turned out gorgeous! I love the colors and the pattern you chose and can’t wait to see it all set up, you have great taste in decor and I’m sure that the patio will reflect this as well as the inside of your home. We love our backyard, the garden brings flowers in each season and there’s nothing like sitting outside with your morning coffee and waking up to the birds chirping or winding down at the end of the day watching the sun go down. I’m sure that this patio will see a lot of fun this summer and for many years to come! I love it!

    Lovely Erin! My parents have a stamped concrete patio as well and you are right…it always seems to look clean. I know you are loving your ‘new’ back yard…just in time for this spring and summer enjoyment.
    Have a great day.
    Hugs, Lynn

    Hi there excellent website! Does running a blog similar to this
    require a massive amount work? I’ve absolutely no knowledge of computer programming but
    I had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyhow, should you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share.
    I know this is off topic nevertheless I simply wanted to ask.
    Thank you!

      Hi Julianne. Thanks for stopping by. Running a blog similar to this isn’t a massive amount of work, but it does take some time (and technical knowledge) up front to set it up if you are self hosting (going with a website). If you are blogging from a blogging platform like WordPress or Blogger, then I think it’s a bit easier. Let me know if you have other questions! Cheers! Erin

      Thank you! I am new to blogging, so it’s nice to be noticed 🙂 I used the “Blossom” theme from Restored 316 Designs (they have lots of beautiful designs!). I used the “blog” template within the theme, with a plug-in for categorizing my posts. Thanks for stopping by, Erin
