The Day Has FInally Come

Yes my dear friends, the day has come when the temps. have exceeded the amount of work my little air conditioner can do to keep me cool.  So  for the first time this summer I have had to close off my sunroom.
Those of you who have a sunroom, Florida room, or what ever you may call it know how hard it is to heat and cool if there are lots of windows or glass in the room.  Normally we can go all summer with it open to the living area and most winters.  But with the temps. so high I resorted to this today.

I pulled all the blinds in there so as to keep some of the sun and heat from entering the room.  It's so hard to get pictures out there in the light so thought today would be a good day to show you around my little room. I have shared bits  in different blogs, but today altho it is a small area I will show you around.

These two pictures were taken standing with the french door open looking in from the living area. This is the far right corner of the sunroom. Perfect spot to sit and look out and have morning coffee, that is when the weather is being nice . I enjoy this room in early fall when it is cool and we have a dark rainy day. Love to sit here and watch it rain, and read a good book.  Oh Fall, where art thou?   

This is looking straight into sunroom.  When blinds are open you can see straight out to the back yard. 

No, I didn't leave this rabbit out from my Easter decor.  I decorate with a few rabbits out here year round. I have a few of my favorite things out here.  The lamp was from my parents' home when we sold it.

The potting table was made by Mr. P and I have showed it before.  It sits on the wall where the french doors are and the back side of the living area wall.

This is on the left side of the sunroom,  The window behind the loveseat is looking into the kitchen.  We have talked about knocking this wall out and making it an open area into the kitchen, but then on days like this ,I think not.

Other than an ugly pair of sliding doors behind the chair and next to the potting table that about takes you around my little sunroom.  I so want to replace those sliding doors as we don't use them, but Mr. P has promised to make me a screen so I can at least hide them as we never open them to the outside.  Will be a winter project for him and guess who won't let him forget???

Hope you are all staying inside and staying comfortable.  These high temps will soon pass as the next season will be upon us.  But until then, we will wait..............


  1. Love your sunroom. Wish I had one to sit and read or look outside. The temps have been hot here too except this am we had thunderstorms after I arrived at work. Lightning struck our building and put our phones out. We still don't have any. The rain was much needed.
    It looks like we may get more tonight. I sure hope so.
    Hope you get some rain too.
    Country at heart

  2. Angela ... What a beautiful room! We had one very similar, even the same French doors, in the house we rented before moving here. I had no idea what to do with a sunroom ... & since we weren't planning on buying that house anyway, I used it for storing boxes & also had my sewing machine & some other craft stuff in there. Your room looks so cozy & inviting! When you write in the future that you had coffee in your sunroom I will be able to picture you there : ) Thanks so much for sharing the photos! Blessings, Shirlee

  3. Love your sunroom. I love your favortie items. I have a lamp similar to that that I inherited from my brother in law when he passed away.
    Hugs and stay cool!

  4. What a beautiful, inviting, space, Angela!! I LOVE it!!! I'd probably live out there! (OK....maybe not on days like you're having today....) So many wonderfully fun treasures - love your old ironing board, the potting table - that adorable little gas pump (??) on top....my son would give his eye teeth for something like that!! And I spy that wonderful little pillow you recently finished up!!! What a blissful place. So glad you gave us a tour! Wishing you cool breezes....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

  5. Oh Angela dear I so wish you could be sitting here with me.. It feels like Fall today.. We really have had only one HOT day and the rest has been just right.. I am not bragging just thankful.. A lot of folks are complaining because it has not felt like Summer here yet but I am quite content with these temps..
    Anyway... I love your sunroom and your bunny is darling. I have a thing for bunnies.. Always did for some reason..
    Your hubby is quite resourceful.. You are blessed.. smile.. Mine is too but too busy to get anything much done for me..
    Oh well .. all in due time if I faint not.. grin..
    Hope you get cooled off ... If not go and buy a plane ticket and I will pick you up.. grin..

  6. What an adorable room! I love that potting table! And that cute dining set in the corner is a perfect spot for morning coffee.

  7. I love your sunroom...it is so inviting!! We have been thinking about putting one off of our dining room. I leave a couple of rabbits out year round too. We had some storms in the wee early hours this morning and it ended up not being so hot here today. Hope it cools off there soon.

  8. Morning!
