"Shabby" Sunroom & Chit-chat


 Before the party, the "sun room" (aka breezeway) had to get cleaned up and de-cluttered from it being a winter storage room...Top photo with the table & chairs is the  wall against the dining room with a door next to it.  The photo with the sofa against the wall, that door goes to the garage. I have little white lights wrapped in fabric. It is soft and romantic in the evening with the lights on. 


 This view faces west. The door in the middle isn't used and ONE day will be replaced as I want to make the sun room into a huge dining room!!! The golf course is across the street.




This view is east and faces the back yard. "When" the room is transformed, this will have a sliding patio door. I have No idea when the transformation will happen. Until then, it is a sun room to relax and people watch.

I added the white sheers to make cozy and more private.

Tomorrow I'm having a day with baby sister. I can't remember it I told you: the doctor removed all the cancer and will reattach her rectum probably in May. She will have 4 months of chemo and then should be totally cancer free. She had rectal cancer...I know that I didn't mention it before as I wasn't sure if she was okay with me telling you.

Thursday is Bible Study Fellowship. This fall the study will be the Book Of Revelation. I am so looking forward to that study. For information go here:  www.bsfinternational.org  This study is for everyone. Won't hurt to check it out !

Friday I am helping a friend get a home ready for an estate sale. It is an 100 year old home with the "creepy" basement. We will be working in the basement with the cob webs and lots of stuff!!!  I'll try to remember to take photos. It is a grand old home!!

warmly,
deb

The flowers are still looking good :)

I am so glad you told us about your sister and her cancer. It is one of the least talked about cancers and so people are hesitant to mention it-almost as if it was something shameful. I am so glad she will be over her chemo and cancer free soon.

Love your sun porch. That will make a wonderful dining room someday--but there is also something special about having a sun porch. xo Diana

Your porch & sunroom are so pretty and welcoming, they make me want to set a spell. :)

Enjoy the day with your sister, so glad to hear she has done so well with treatment and prayers.

Oh, have fun digging in that basement! Wear a baseball cap to keep the cobwebs and critters out of your hair, lol. Hope you find a treasure for yourself too.

What fun it is to dream about future dining room. It looks like a great room to relax. I'm so glad you will have a day with your sister. Continued prayers on her recovery. I can't wait to hear about your basement adventures. I agree with Pam. Wear a hat!!

You know I love that sunroom, and really want you to keep it forever! Have I ever told you that? lol But I do get that it's frustrating when you want a bigger dining room, more space, etc. It's just so nice out there!
I'm so glad to hear about your sister! :)
Have fun in the basement! I'm sure there are treasures to be found.

Im always planning how I will change my house around.. but my hubby is never really on board! lol! your little sunroom is charming just as it is I think.
Im glad your sister is doing well. that dreaded C word is such a rotten thing. I have four friends fighting the battle right now. How odd it this? one of them is our friend who introduced Tony and I a million years ago.. and then BOTH of his exwives! Im not sure what form of cancer he has, but both of his ex's have lung cancer.
And then a dear friend that I grew up with has esophageal cancer. The older we get the more we see of it I guess.
I hope you have a great day with your little sister! you're lucky, my sisters are all so far away.. I miss them terrible!
happy wednesday
xoxo

Praise God for your Sister's recovery! I love your sun room, nothing better than kicking back in a comfortable room like that:) The digging in the basement getting ready for the Estate sale sounds like a fun day to me! Have a blessed and beautiful day! HUGS!

I have had your sister in my prayers and the good prognosis is wonderful. God is so good! Love your sunroom! I do miss a special space like that but I'm still enjoying my smaller home.
hugs,

I am glad your sister is a survivor and Bless her during upcoming surgeries and care.

Debby said...

Oh that sunroom brings back memories. My in laws had a breezeway. They used it as a sun room as well. When we had family dinners they would set up tables from side to side and we would eat there. I would keep it the same but use it as a dining room when you need more space. The slider or French doors would be nice though. I can't wait to see if you find treasures. I will pray for you sister. I have friends going through similar things and it is so hard. Hugs

donna said...

I so love your porch. I wish I could had one. We have been working on screening in our back porch just so the mesquitos do not carry us off. lol
My prayers for your sister.
Hugs

Very, very good news about your baby sis. Thank you for sharing that it was rectal cancer as people don't think about that and they should.
Your sunny room is great. And your future plans sound wonderful. I love having a sun room to sit and relax and just enjoy.

That looks like a perfectly breezy sunroom. I love the sheer window treatments. They let in all that natural light, while still keeping some privacy. I'm glad I stumbled upon your blog! I thoroughly enjoyed that tour! lot! Thanks for sharing that, Deb! All the best to you!
