The finished patio project (and a few random photos).

Alma's Ganache In A Cup.
 The deck is finished! After months of mud and building, we finally got some furnishings (thanks to Lowe's discount area and various thrift shops) and it is starting to look like the retreat I always wanted. But first, I tease you with some random pictures of Portland!

(cue evil laugh)

The empty cup is the remains of an Alma Chocolate's Ganache in a Cup. I was not about to stop to take a picture before I ate it.
Cherish Yesterday; Dream Tomorrow, Love Today.
 Outside of Alma's, I saw this wonderful sign sitting on the sidewalk.
I call this The Retreat.
 And now for the main event. :)
Candlesticks from Goodwill.

Perfect for dreaming and reading.

The Garden Gate

The Party Pavilion

Pretty lanterns light the way.

A vase from a friend's mother's estate sale.

Rain chains: elegant and relaxing.
