The three days I had off last weekend were also the warmest days of the year so far (above 60!) so I didn’t spend a lot of time inside sewing. (I need to–I want to wear my tunic at the end of the month and I realized Skyler has a birthday coming up–but I needed to recharge more.)

Anyway, all that sitting on my tiny back deck got me thinking about the outdoor improvements I want to make this year. It will be my third summer in the house so I’ve had some time to play with ideas, and the idea that’s  stuck is “pergola.” And “slightly less tiny deck.” Check out the ideas I’ve been collecting on Pinterest:
