Outdoor wishes...

via velvet & linen (I think)
I am loving this porch with its white and fresh hits of navy blue and seeing I am over being indoors, my thoughts have turned to what need to be done outside once the warmer days arrive.Tim Irving
..which is why today's pick from Tim's range in "The Yellow Jersey". Not only because I am on a serious health kick (2 dress sizes, 8kgs and 8.5" of my waist so far), and would like to get back on the bike in the sun, but Mic (Husband) was a serious cyclist for a long time and the recent Le Tour de France has reignited a fire in him to get peddling again...so this is my pick today.
Don't forget to leave a comment as tomorrow night the winner will be drawn to win 2 of Tim's beautiful prints!!!

  2. Here's to Lance Armstrong, who continues to overcome so much while achieving so much. 3rd is awesome! (not to mention, he's from my home town)!!! If you love the Tour, you know who I'm talking about...It's so funny to hear you say "now that it's warming"...We're at the peak of heat, and all we want to do is find cool indoor activities! I love all my friends across the globe!!!!!! xxx kim

  4. Ms. Ness, what is your "health kick secret"? I could sure use help to downsize my dress sizes and waist measurements!

    What a great cycling print!

  7. Hi Ness, great outdoor area - very sweet & summery. Love the print you've chosen today too. I adored watching every minute of the Tour, but unfortunately it hasn't ignited any fire in me to jump back on my bicycle!! Lee :)

  12. That porch is beautiful, wish we had the climate but over in Wales summer has been a wash out 2nd year in a row, just praying that August is better. Still if I had a porch I could even sit out in the rain :o)

  16. I love the light fixture on that porch, It's such a beautiful style, and it really adds a nice contrast to the other elements.

    I can't wait to see who wins Tim's beautiful pictures...

  30. Total congrats to the slim down Ness!!! After all my time recuping in bed from the achilles surgery & then the 8 weeks of rehab with no strenuous exercise I've gained & now work to get it off on my stationary bike & just working again. I'll peddle outside again when its not over 100!!!
    Again hurray for you.
    Hailey says hi to Declan too. She is very intrigued with Tasmania now.When I mentioned that the Tasmanian Devil from the cartoons really didnt exist that way...her response was..well duh..it is a cartoon!!!

  31. Tim's "Essential Spain" photograph reminds me of all the road trips I took during my solo travels in Spain.

  32. I love that porch too because though I am just looking the photo, I feel so refreshed. It looks like a very quiet place. This would be a perfect place to relax. .
