Entrance way..

Remember I told you guys last week, that I made a few sketches… This is what I expect my porch to look like… This is what it looks like now... Remember my lamp… from my old home?? Here is a pic for you… That’s what is meant to go in the front of my home..
Remember my mail box?? That goes up here ….
My make shift bird bath… I’m still hunting for a proper one.. Then the trunk will be cut off completely and a proper bird bath will stand in my garden.
Then I have a bell that I carried from my Sri Lanka trip…
All in all… I think it will look pretty… what do you think?
Now for a few flowers at the entrance of my home.... … This one is rather burnt… the direct sunlight is too strong.. I’m hoping by September, she will feel better…
My Pink Saturday flowers..
And when you go back.... this is what it looks like...
I’m linking in to FJI and Sunday Showcase. You must go and check Funky Junk Interiors, there is loads & loads of inspirations there… and the DIYs are simply amazing… Any more ideas for me?? Comment or email at I love hearing your views…


  1. Lovely...lovely...lovely Patty...totally loved it!!!:)
    Thanks for your comment on my blog!

    Have a greet weekend!!


  2. Happy Pink Saturday my friend! I LOVE how the sketch turned into reality! YUMMO! Thanks for sharing!


  3. Hi patty, U can beautify ur entrance way more by putting assorted masks above the door frame and wall mount candle holders on both sides.How about a water feature b4 u step into ur dream home ??

  4. Hi Patty,

    Happy PS! I just came back from Qatar with a bunch of fancy lanterns. I'm still wondering what to do with them. They looked so nice over there but here in Canada I do not have a home for them yet. I've also traveled around the globe collecting artifacts. Its too bad you live so far I would have you over to help me integrate into my home decor. I dont have your talent and creativity. I love your home. Thanks for sharing.


  5. loved the entrance especially the last picture wid a small gate(looked so cuuutee) and white pots on both the sides..

  6. Nooooooooooooooo! Dont touch that birdbath. its so unique. Find a larger vessel to sit atop.
    lovely pics.

  7. It's going to look great. Hope you have a wonderful pink Saturday.

  8. Wow your front door is amazing! I am so loving the little bohemian nook with the cool lantern! And I think my favorite part may just be the gate, so amazing!!!


  9. Patty, your dream sketch is beauty in reality. Love it.

    Have a lovely PINK weekend ~
    TTFN ~Hugs, Marydon

  10. very you r a busy bee now....great to see all this...which area is this? Is that Dusit Dubai view from your house.

  11. lovely...How abt adding some hardy leafy plant and plant them betw your vinca's and other flowery plants?...also on the wall opposite to the one that has the bell...can you hang some outdoors wall decor? Something in Terracota or in wood...? This is a lovely idea...I have to send you some of my home pics and ask for opnions...:-)

  12. That is a spectacular view out the back gate! Your flowers are looking lovely, and it looks like your dream porch is coming true!
    Happy Pink Saturday!

  13. Hi Patty,

    What a sweet place you have here! I have perused several of your posts and enjoyed each one!

    I am so glad you stopped by my blog and left a comment so I could come by and get to know you!

    Kindly, ldh

  14. I see dusit dubai in the distance!Which is making me delurk the first time. A fellow dubai wali...I enjoy your blog so much. Where do you live? I used to live in springs untill last year and ur garden brings back memories of mine too. I had lovingly tended to it for 2 yrs...but now we have given our/that house on rent and live in a small aptt ourselves on rent!So not much scope for gardening which I really miss. Nevertheless, your pics are so pretty and also, dont you agree that dubai has some of the best home decor stores in the world??I love it here.
    Lovely blog, will comment more often....

  15. i love the lamp. i've always wanted one with a Moroccan flair!

  16. It is looking lovely! Why dont you go for a small water fountain that will also serve as a birdbath? I also have an idea for your main door since it has many rectangular empty panels and is away from rain and shine. If your decor is contemporary, you can go for a few abstract paintings, fixed on selected random panels, that will add a zing to the entrance energy, just my thoughts:-)

  17. Patty, I love your SKETCH! Talent, lady! And your flowers are gorgeous. Keep up the hard work!

  18. love love love that sketch. I am wondering what sunsign are you ...wink! Are we related? Your space looks so pretty Pats. I love that gate n the view!

  19. Happy belated pink Saturday. Hope you are having a great week.

  20. I love the orange curtains in your living room! :)
    Looking at your front entrance pic, i'm missing Dubai!!


I love to hear from you.... Thank you for leaving me a note!
