Outdoor Living - Historic McKinney


Remember a few weeks ago when I shared the beginning of my garden journey HERE!!! 

Where the pergolas, outdoor kitchen and fireplace are now

Once a storage to the garage now my husbands office... 

The side yard looking down towards the street  

Where fireplace is NOW 

Side yard looking in from street view -  

Building of the outdoor grill and serving bar.. 

Another view of side yard looking towards street from back yard 

AND 12 YEARS LATER....... We are loving our space!! 
Remember a few weeks ago and I shared the beginning of my garden journey here! 

We finished the painting of the second pergola this week!! 

Loving the outdoor fan - has 3 speeds and it is pretty chic for us here at the blue cottage! 

A better view of the fan... I hunted this outdoor fan out and drove 30 miles to pick her up... 
A view down the side yard yard now towards the street! 

More fan and fireplace.... did i say I loved this fan, it has 3 speeds, spins around and oh my goodness i love it! 

A view from the fireplace looking towards the driveway and my fabulous neighbor 

More side view looking down the side yard... 

A view looking from the drive to the back yard entertaining space...

I believe we are ALL DONE  almost done with the yard projects!!!

Thanks for stopping by the blue cottage!

Party anyone!!

Wow. Is right, Valarie, you've really done amazing things in your garden! Love the pergola and the fan is to die for! I'd have driven 30 miles for it also. I have a lot of catching up to do on your blog and looking forward to it!

Valarie -

Hi! I'm Diane and I live in Dallas. I've followed your blog for a couple of years and love it. I keep thinking I'll get my own blog, but just can't ever seem to find enough time! I love your fan! I recently saw one like it when my husband and I went on the Waxahachie Gingerbread home tour. Can I ask where did you find it? Would love to have one like it.
