Wow you win the DIY prize for sure ...this is wonderful ! E in TN


What a lovely design & coup for you.
Have a beautiful weekend ~


Well look at you! I guess your not having problems leaning over anymore--- I'm glad to hear that! Your patio rocks! Great job!!!!


I am astonished for sure. It is like a quilt with stones. We recently did this with crazy old pavers in our backyard. This is far more creative and artistic. Beautiful....Renee


I've watched this patio come to life on fb.
Best patio EVER.
LOVE it Betty and you.

Wow, Betty. I am impressed. It looks fantastic.

And, I see pink.♥

Wow, what a beautiful outdoor space made all the more special that your family worked together to make it happen! Thanks for the tip about Craigs list. I have never used it much, but I will give it a look now.

Oh my goodness, what a vision, what an eye and I can't imagine how much work. Well done.


My son helped a friend move, and the friend had had a swimming pool business. He had a bunch of various size and color bricks, and he gave to whole lot to my son. All he had to invest was a bit of Quikrete which he swept into the cracks followed by a fine water spray, and he doubled the size of his patio. They live out there now!


Your patio looks great! What an awesome job you and your family did on it! Now you get to enjoy it....



I love it more than I can say. The design. The diy aspect. The cheapness, err, I mean budget savvy!!!! You go girl. You can do anything with the right drive. Glad to have you show it off!!


Hi Betty...my goodness but time flies when your havin' fun bloggin' and livin' life. I've been doing lots of both without much time for visiting, so I'm just droppin' in to say Howdy, and invite you to stop by CollectInTexas Gal.

As times change for all of us, our Blogs seem to reflect those changes in our interests, and CITexas Gal has changed a bit with the addition of Tracks of My Texas Ancestors. Yep, I've been bitten by the Genealogy Bloggin' Bug.

I'd love to share the Blogging Genealogy Community with you. I hope you will have a minute to stop by and see/read the 'May I Introduce You To' interview Feature on CollectInTexas Gal/Tracks of My Texas Ancestors by GeneaBlogger.

Betty !

This is remarkable on so many levels -
1. cost (you do very well on Craig's List !.) 2. LABOR - free (and the cooperation from your dear and hearty family). 3. Design - (WHO could design something like and actually make it work out with big and small bits of granite) !
Just remarkable. You (and your dear cohorts) did it again !

Hugs, Janice


Wow, Betty, I am so impressed. What a beautiful work of art you have done. The cost just knocks me out. I am very proud of you girl.(AND your helpers)BIG smile.

Have a wonderful weekend enjoying your extended piece of yard "art."
XO, Jeanne


For heavens' sake! I thought I left a comment here a long time ago about your gorgeous patio. It is majorly impressive.

But I really stopped by to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving! I hope your day is filled with delights.

Betty, this is so cool! I love what you've done, and it is so creative. I really like when people accomplish something so much better than the ordinary with "less".

Thank you so much for your visit today. I think about you often, but I know, it's hard sometimes. I'm glad you still think of me too, though.

Congratulations! This is a stunning patio. The granite "jigsaw puzzle" looks like the center point of this area. The best part is you've added your personal touch to it. It's a DIY patio!
