Exterior Design

This is the time of year that I turn my attention to decorating outdoors. This year as we are currently embarking on a fair-sized outside renovation (full before and afters and maybe a few “durings” promised in a detailed post soon) it’s all the more fun.

I’ve always loved these classic shaped cast iron urns.  I feel like pots and flowering baskets and flower boxes are totally needed accessories, without which, the yard would be naked, yikes!  Husband out of town for the weekend translates into treating myself , well us really, with flowers and lots of them. A boxwood for the middle, some sweet potato vine (just cannot resist that chartreuse color!) and some sweet pink flowers and…

Pillows aren’t just for inside you know.  Of course, had to have these fun outdoor pillows.  More soon.  Happy Monday!
