My Patio and a Little Emma Love

Hello! I wanted to show you my Chicago patio. It is very small and the cement was green with moss so I decided it was time to make it over and add a little square footage to our spring/summer/fall living space. I found this cute wicker chair/table set and indoor/outdoor rug at Target. I wish I had a before picture to go with my after but my hubby started the makeover before I came to visit. I bought some hanging baskets and they are now up and I plan to get a new potted flower to put where the shown hanging basket now sits. I am so happy with the makeover. I now leave the patio door open and Emma loves to be able to walk out there whenever she pleases. Hubby put up a baby gate so she can't escape. I will be sad when winter arrives and I lose this pretty space until spring. Enjoy the photos and Emma love!

Emma loves sitting in the chairs. She's sending you bully kisses...see her tongue? LOL!

The complete set. Love it.

Ok, back to laundry and packing! Enjoy your day!

Your patio looks great! I like the wicker chairs and the outdoor rug. My small patio could use a makeover, too.

Kim, I love it! Anyway you can find an outdoor space in the big city.... This is idealic, so peaceful and pretty. I bought a big braid rug for our patio and it really gives it that 'room' feel, doesn't it?
