Believe it or not, the weather is still tolerable here in Phoenix. The 90’s have made their debut, but I don’t mind, I’m still leaving the doors open allowing the air to come in. This will last until I sweat at my desk then come to realize the good weather is over and it’s time to take on sewing projects indoors!
I wanted a screen door built for our door from the dining room onto the porch. But, I didn’t want any screen porch door because I don’t like the way it blocks my view of our pretty yard. I had a special one in mind! So handyman Dennis came and took down my request. I basically wanted the door to flip to the other side and stay there until I actually wanted to use it.
Hey, I’m a photographer, I don’t like fuzzy scenery.
This is what it looks like if I were to use it:
And this is the way it is when I don’t want to use it, it’s on the other side (see it on the right) but still looks cute. Yes I know there’s a cord there hanging from the ceiling and I don’t know what to do with it yet. I’m not photoshopping it, it’s real life.
Screen door from Home Depot, and Dennis added Pottery Barn handles I snagged on sale for $6 each on both sides of the door.
Isn’t it lovely?
On another note I can’t believe that fern is still alive since I pretty much shoved it into that pot insisting that it had to fit there.
Oh, and I never did figure out how to get that garden rake head off, so I asked Dennis to rip it off. Here it is, holding some of my garden hand tools next to a very sun-bleached American flag.
Happy porch screen weather – for the next few days anyway!
Diana Elizabeth says the garden is doing well – it’s cute to see the little green peppers growing and starting out small and the tomatoes.
