The Barbecue

Hello dear readers,

Wish there was some escape from the melting heat we are enduring these days.  Finishing the barbecue project provided a refuge by spending more hours at home with the a/c on full time.
Not so sure about the photos, photography is not my strong point.

The patio

With plants

Complete with barbecue, etc. 

The cute Dalmatian is a gift from Jennifer.

The beautiful spider plant and the two lovely plants by its side are gifts from Carmen.

The geraniums in their egg-carton planters.

All ready for the people to come and enjoy their meal.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend with blessings.


  1. a patio that makes you want to rest while savoring fresh fruit. An excellent work
    hugs and good weekend

  2. Hello Drora,
    The barbecue is fantastic. The pation is just beautifula nd I love the way you built it to hold the plants. It is absolutely perfect.
    Big hug

  3. te ha quedado estupendo, felicidades

  4. Gorgeous! I wish it was nice enough here to sit in the sun. Sadly, the mosquitoes eat us alive when we go out.

  5. Hmm...I might have to fire up the grill now. :D

  6. Preciosa escena Drora, me ha encantado. Bravo !!!!!!

  7. That's a very welcoming patio! I'll come by for a bite if you have vegan options ;-)

  8. Has creado un rincón muy acogedor. Dan ganas de sentarse a pesar de la ola de calor.Buen fin de semana Drora.

  9. The patio is just wonderful! I love the tiles and the rock wall - just the perfect sheen on both, and the color and detail are lovely!
    All of the accessories are perfect! The pots and flowers liven up the place and look so authentic, it's hard to believe they started as paper and egg carton!
    The table and chairs are adorable, and I can't wait to try your burlap method!
    What a charming scene, and it all came about because of a lovely barbecue given to you by a friend!

  10. Wow I love your patio I wish I could sit there and enjoy the wonderful food and the beautiful plants. Fantastic job Drora .
    Hugs Maria

  11. Qué bonita ha quedado! Mañana mi hija se trae a los amigos a casa de barbacoa, me vendría bien una tan bien surtida y organizada como esa :) Me encanta el perrito, pero ten cuidado con él, jaaaa! Aquí también está haciendo mucho calor, no hay término medio, o bufanda o bañador :) Que tú también tengas un fin de semana estupendo, Drora! Un beso

  12. You've created the most wonderful place… a place to sit, enjoy… and have a Bratwurst. What could be better? *LOL* Once more I'm admiring the stonework of your little display - and you've decorated it so lovely with so many fantastic gifts from talented friends. A beautiful project - enjoy your BBQ! ;O)

  13. Beautiful scene Drora! I love the little plants. It looks like the perfect spot to spend time with friends.

  14. What a wonderful place, love it so much! Blessings, Pam in Norway

  16. Hi Drora! This is such a fun project! It looks so cheerful and inviting, and the food looks delicious! I would want to be there! I love the little dog who knows where the meat is cooking! Your flowers make it so summery and festive!!

  17. ,Dear Drora

    !The finished patio with the flowers looks AMAZING
    .Furniture, barbecue & dog make it look ready for a party
    .Hope whoever attends the barbecue will have a great time

    :It has been hot here too, and what's worse
    .we have had almost no rain for months
    .It's been terrible for the farmers

    .Our garden is looking like the Serengeti
    .And we try to stay indoors when possible
    .I am glad to hear you have a working AC

    ?Does Baalatova eat bratwurst
