That’s what we all try to enjoy about summer and now that school is out for most and June is right around the corner, we’ll all be getting ready for more outdoor parties and entertaining. I do enjoy this time of year so much especially now that I have finished the patio installation along with all the furniture that we’ll be enjoying and using out there.
With that, I know that I’ll be having some parties on the patio. It’s nice and spacious and can seat a lot of guests, so it will be fun to use. That’s where Frontgate comes in. We’ve been chatting and they sent me a gorgeous beverage dispenser which will come in handy on my potting bench on the patio, holding 3 gallons of beverages for guests. What fun that will be!
I knew this potting bench would come in handy and be a great serving station out on the patio. It’s perfect for that.
The Durachill beverage dispenser from Frontgate is so cool! You know how beverages can become watered down when you have to put ice in there and leave it outside? Instant meltdown. These dispensers from Frontgate are stainless steel with compartments in the bottom and top that holds ice, keeping your beverages ice cold without diluting down the drinks. Love that feature!
They also have some great Super Chill insulated serving pieces for outdoors that keep things super chilled too. These serving trays pop open and ice can go underneath the metal, keeping whatever is on the tray super cold.
Yes, indeed, SummerTime is for easy living, that is for sure! And watermelon is part of that for me. I love watermelon and all the summer fruits that go with this time of year. To make my chalkboard sign, I copied this chalkboard printable with my own version with regular chalk, link here. Just adds a fun touch to your table.
So looking forward to hosting a few gatherings in my backyard this year and getting out these serving pieces will be fun.
Great news for one of YOU!!
Frontgate is giving one of my readers their very own Durachill Beverage dispenser too. This 3 gallon dispenser holds a lot of liquid, so you can entertain a crowd in style.

About six weeks ago, we had a hot spell and I turned on my AC for the first time. The AC that I had installed almost a year ago, along with a new furnace. The old one that came with the house was the 1979 original and was on it's literal last leg. It definitely wasn't working great, but I let it go for a couple of years until it gave up the ghost last year. I had a local company … Read More»
I hope you are all enjoying a nice Memorial Day weekend, wherever you are and whatever you are doing....enjoy the time!
This is my 3rd summer on the screened porch and it is such a happy place for me. I'm out here so much of the time now and as soon as I got the pollen cleaned up this year, it was back to business as usual on the porch.
This year, I pulled the hose up on the porch, got a … Read More»
Today's Feature Friday is a new to me blogger, Susan from Love of Home.

She and her family have been in their NY state 1890 farmhouse for 16 years now and it was love at first sight. I can certainly see why. Look at this charmer! It was right … Read More»
One of the things I've done several times on the blog and around my house is change out fabric on chair seats. It's so easy to do and I've shared a tutorial a few times on how easy it it to take the old fabric off and staple on new fabric. Check out that link for all the pics and steps of how I recover my chair seats. This set of chairs has been with me for over 10 years, they are solid wood and … Read More»
I'm back with a couple more recent outfits I've worn, since summer is heating up around here. I tend to still wear jeans and colored denim all through the summer if I'm going to be inside most of the time. If I'm outside, I'll wear shorts to stay cool and I'll share some of those later too.
I am just starting the self-tanner about now to get a little color going, since I do not bake in the … Read More»
I'm always up for an antique outing, even though I can hardly fit anything else in my house. It's just fun to look and browse. While we were in Mobile a few weeks ago for the Southern Romance excursion, we all took a trip to Charles Phillips Antiques, one of those hidden away gems of a place that we all just loved.
Crusty, old stuff was piled in there and we found out he shops Europe for most … Read More»
