The Great Outdoors

You know what is great? Having a HUGE deck! Our new place, it has one of those. You can kinda see about a third of it from Monday's post. Yes just a third! It is awesome!!! And Huge. And plan ole amazing!!! We moved in a bit late in the game to plant a whole bunch of new plants - because lets face it my two tiny flower boxes are just that tiny! So those will probably wait til next year. Unless I can find some cool hearty and decent sized shrubs {Cuz they will need to last through the Winter!}.

Oh and lets not look at my poor BBQ and table. They were 95% of our old one. And now fill up 1%. I know. Which leads me into my recent finding.....
I mean the cute stuff ...the kind that I want. Why is it as much as an indoor furniture? Have you found any great deals for your yard or deck? I have been stalking different websites and Home Depot for their end of season sales. Craigslist too! Cuz I can't wait to have friends over to my own little versions of this!!!!!

**UPDATE: I do not necessarily want the couch set above - just one I've seen while on the hunt. And the price...oy!. We def want a 4-6 person table and either a couch set-up or some lounge chairs...I am thinking loungers (cuz I love laying out and reading a magazine! 


  1. go to hell with your huge deck. NOT FAIR.

    1. I've said it before, and I'll say it again - YOU ARE WELCOME ANYTIME!!!

    1. Isn't it amazing!!!! I really want to go all out next summer....big dreams!

  3. OMG! I was saying the SAME thing when I moved into my new apartment last month. My garden is large enough to have furniture and we lucked out getting some from my roommate's old apartment BUT I really wanted a lawn sofa - SO expensive! I would say try thrifting, Target and for deals. Craigslist is also another great resource. But girl, I'm struggling with it too!

  4. Taylor, at the beginning of Spring I set out to do the same, creating a nice space outdoors. We have such a lovely deck; it needed to be beautified! I'm sure as we get closer to the end of the month, you'll be able to pick up something on sale. I just started blogging and posted about the changes we made this Summer. Check it out if you like @

    Good luck creating yourself a relaxing space!
