front Courtyard 2017

Front Courtyard

I have been working out in the yard planting and getting ready for summer.  With the help of a couple of cute girls, the Front Courtyard is now ready to use!front courtyardWe got this furniture set last year, so we just had to brush it off and get the cushions and rug out and we were ready to use it!  I love that it is very low maintenance!

The quilt is from Gardner Village quilt shop.  I bought it a few weeks ago, when I was on a shopping/lunch spree with one of my friends.  It was cheaper to buy than it was to make, so I decided it would be perfect to use outside!front courtyardMy daughter and kids gave me the cute end table and solar lighted hedgehog for my birthday…and I couldn’t wait to put them outside!  They are so cute at night all lit up!front courtyardThese two darling girls put my vintage flea market bench together with some fun summer decor!  

This is the bench that I purchased last fall and it looked like this.

She is quite the creative gal!

That is our Front Courtyard for this year!  I have planted some fun pots for the driveway and I am working on new things in the garden.  But that is all for another day!

Thanks for Visiting…Hope you have a Sunny Day!

    1. Lauraly, Thank you for taking the time to write your comment. My antique chair is one of my favorite finds! You could use any chair and cut a hole, but when I found that chair, there was no seat on it, so all I had to do is paint it!! It was perfect.
