Here comes the sun!

With summer right around the corner and plans of entertaining on the mind I am prepping the house front to back. This past weekend I started with the front porch.

I found this whole vintage iron set to sell at my space at Vignettes in OB but then decided to keep it for the season. My potted Hydrangeas are still going strong from Rachel Ashwells book reading, also at Vignettes. I love live potted plants on the porch, it just bring the garden that much closer to being inside.
As you can see Lucy, my 1/2 yorkie 1/2pomeranian/shitzu/chihuahua, is already enjoying it.
I made this bird feeder out of an old ceiling light cover, hung it from some rope and added my favorite vintage chandelier details. It looks amazing in the garden and the birds love it.

Wrapped up the day of freshening up the yard with a salad pulled right from my garden, more info on that to come once it's really blooming!

Some serious DIY

This has by far been the biggest DIY project my husband and I have ever gotten ourselves into. From the basic structure to the bar stools, and surfboard on the wall( he shaped it)w e did it all!
I could spend forever talking about the details but feel free to email me if there is something you would like to know more about.
