Love your gazebo. It's so inviting. Love the touch with the curtains too........they'll come in handy for those "skinny dipping" evenings. :D

I'm thinking you might need to install a revolving door on the guest room with as many people as would like to come and chill out with you.

You all did an awesome job on the retreat.

You did a beautiful job and deserve to enjoy it and it looks like you are. Wanna come make me one of those retreat areas on my deck?

Oh I thought your retreat was for your quilting pals, namely us, but on 2nd look I realize it is for you and your very hard working DH, Enjoy your little bit of heaven, it is beautiful. May in Jersey

Looks like a great place to be when not quilting. :)

Looks inviting and relaxing. I must admit when I saw the wine bottle, I thought.....hmmmm....does she live in Indiana and yep! My sister shared some Oliver wine on her last trip here. Sweet, but yummy!

Okay, I'm confused. I thought Carl lived next door. Where's hubby?????????????????????? Okay, tell me it is none of my business. I love your new hang-out. Do we have to bring our own wine and glasses?

I just went back and re-read your first post and realize Carl is hubby - not the next door neighbor. This is how those rumors get started.

Looks great and hope you get to enjoy it a lot!

That is a beautiful space, don't think much would get done in the house as I'd never want to leave there.

Looks really inviting and wonderful. Would not be a problem at all for DH and I to swing by if we are ever heading to Indiana, LOL....

LOVELY! So warm and inviting!
Friends of ours incorporated an outdoor fireplace in their deck design. We (neighbors) seem to migrate there for cocktails, and spontaneous potlucks...
I want one. WAH WAH WAH WAH....
Good news is, I think DH is nearly convinced...
ENJOY your new space, my friend!
