Porch & Patio Party

Welcome to the Porch & Patio Party, hosted by Barb at Grits and Glamour! Please pay Barb a visit to see a list of all the participants.
Our screened-in porch was here when we bought our house seven years ago, but alas, it wasn't very pretty. Since the whole inside of the house practically needed to be redone, sadly the porch didn't really get much attention.
All we have had for a couple of weeks now is rain, rain, rain. Since today was actually dry...and happened to be my birthday, Mr. Maison bought me a bench and candle chandelier, and installed everything to "prettify" the porch. The poor thing worked until 10:00 tonight to get it done.

Mr. Maison deserved some wine after all his hard work...

The citronella candles have ladybugs on them...
