Come into the lanai...

We spend most of our time in our lanai or Florida room.


It has windows on three walls so it gets a lot of light and beautiful views of the golf course.


It is the perfect room to hang out TV or computer! heehee!


We've been looking for a coffee table that complimented our furniture and finally found what we wanted.


We ordered it and the very day it came in, I found this cute little red table at my favorite thrift store for $4!


So it was a 2 table day!

It's sunny here today so I will be in the lanai


....won't you join me?


Have a wonderful day! I hope the sun shines on you, too! smile_shades

It looks like a great place to sew bears. Comfortable with lots of need that when embroidering their noses!

You and your hubby are just adorable beautiful people!!

Now, I do quite love your Florida room. Maybe one day I can visit your Florida room and you can visit my Arizona room ;) tee heeee - OKay I don't have and Arizona room anymore, as it is now my bedroom, but the idea was cute don't you think?

Or silly, whichever way you look at it ;)

I heart your new table and the thrift store find red table works beautifully, also with your pillows!

So tropical and fabulous!

Diane, it looks so sunny and comfortable in your lanai! The little red table is a cute accent piece and the coffee table matches your furniture so beautifully!

My husband would love to retire next to a golf course someday :-)

Have a wonderful weekend!

What a beautiful comfortable sitting room. You did a really nice job furnishing the room. The room just explodes with sunshine. Very nice.

Love the lanai! The print on that couch is perfect and fabulous. So is the coffee table and your choice of centerpiece baskets. I'm going to pretend I'm there sitting on that couch sharing our friendship today!

Mary Sheehan Winn said...

beautiful! Also, love the furniture you chose. I think I'll DRAG my hubby to Wicker and Things to replace the drab furniture that came with our Florida get away house. Your taste is wonderful!

Q said...

I can imagine sitting and knitting and watching the birds.
Very pretty room.

JG said...

The sun is shining here in Western MA today. The crocuses are in bloom and it's 58°F. Sweet!

Lovely room! Are the sofa and rocker vintage pieces?? Our classmate, Sally has a set of furniture very similar from the late 40's or 50's...I've laways liked it. Your upholstery looks great!

Your name is on that blue and white plate! :) I love ships and that was the deciding factor. I'm glad you like it.

Unknown said...

As we drove home from Portland Oregon in the middle of a rain storm I said to my husband...I'm flying out tomorrow on a jet plane for Florida. He said have a fun FLORA DAY Jackie, just remember to come back to me! Now this morning I see I can come sit in that soft chair with Diane and we could be Queens for the day!

Molly Anne said...

It's so beautiful and tropical looking! Isn't it great when you find exactly what you were looking for?

Kaila said...

Loved visiting the cozy sunshine of your lanai. I hope I am not too late to visit and have some tea.

The red table was a steal, and the Bobbsey Twins book (as usual) made me smile.

Do you play golf or just look at others playing?

Vee said...

How'd I miss this invitation to spend some time in such a beautiful room. That red table is a great thrift store find!
