Weekend Recap: Outdoor Playtime

  1. Great pics- your pups are so cute and my hubs would be jealous of that boat- I made him sell his sail boat a few years ago and I still don’t think he’s forgiven me- hehe.

  2. Ms. Bright says:

    Your planter boxes are so cheery. And I actually love the pattern of the trellises. Did you buy those??!?!

    We planted a few tomatoes and strawberries this year…we’ll see!

  3. Charlene says:

    Love what you did with those pallets! They make your garden looks so cheerful.

  4. Roxy says:

    Oh absolutely loving your blue planters!! And your precious little helpers. Okay, let’s be serious…loving your boat too ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Looks like a fantastic weekend! I love the way your planters turned out. Such a perfect bright color in your yard. And your pups are precious!!

  6. sara says:

    LOVE the planter boxes … Great idea! I’m just digging out a garden and wondering how to make some boxes ….

  7. Katrina says:

    Ok, we are so making those planter boxes this year, 1st we need to decided what we want to grow!!

    as for the patio — I say pavers you’ll prefer the look long-turn, or at least I would ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Kate Collins says:

    I love your planter boxes!! Very cute backyard. And the dogs are adorable!

  9. Cathy Wall says:

    Love the pallet planter boxes and the color you painted them. Enjoy the bounty from them…. Go for the paver patio, it’s perfect for your yard.

  10. I love the planter idea! I wish I had the room but alas I make do with my pots.

  11. laxsupermom says:

    Love the bright pop of color of your planter boxes! Such a fun touch. I think I’d do a paver patio over a trex one. But I may be a bit biased, because I have plans to replace our wood one with a paver one. Great pics! Thanks for sharing.

  12. The planters looks so cute in the blue. Nice job! Re: the patio, last year we had one put in with pavers (tumbled ones) as well as a seat wall and, when our old retaining wall started crumbling, a new retaining wall. I love it. I love the look. We considered doing flagstone or blue slate but it was simply too fancy for our house not to mention too expensive. For whatever reason, we never even considered a Trex deck. I guess we probably should have! Can’t wait to see how the deck/patio turns out!!

  13. What a brillant idea with the pallets! They look so good!
    I love a deck because you don’t get as many bugs crawling on you (I’m a bug phobe) but the pation gives you more versatility for arranging because you can usually make it bigger. I also love slabs of stone with thyme or lavender growing inthe cracks. Hmmmm…. sorry, I am no help am I.

  14. Gaby says:

    Oh! love love love this idea! I’m seriously considering for my backyard, I’ll start hunting some pallets today! Thanks so much for the idea!

  15. Lori says:

    What kind of dog is Moo? He looks just like my Tibetan terrier, Murphy who I also call Moo ๐Ÿ™‚

  16. Great idea with the pallets! Pups are adorable, too!

  17. stephanie says:

    ahhh, you make me miss my backyard in Memphis! yours looks great!

  18. Jessica says:

    That backyard looks great and what cute pups! Love the greenery inspiration!

  19. The pallets are a great idea! I love them painted in a fun color. The pups are too cute! Nothing like a good weekend outside!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldnโ€™t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that itโ€™s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
