It’s here! It’s here! Friday is here!

On this beautiful Friday, I present you…beautiful pillows 🙂 You can find a variety of outdoor pillows almost anywhere you look, but I am particularly fond of these blue prints. There’s something Mediterranean about them, and I obviously would LOVE to be in the Mediterranean any day of the week…wouldn’t you!?

Splurge vs. Steal: Outdoor Sectional

Target Outdoor Sofa

When you’ve been cooped up indoors all.winter.long. the last thing you want to do is stay indoors once summer hits! What better way to create an inviting space outside than a sectional? There is no better way. For my Canadian friends, what I neglected to include in this week’s posts was a mosquito net/mosquito repellant/citronella candles. They are also necessary for creating an inviting and comfortable space outdoors right now. These things are VICIOUS, I tell ya!

Anywho…in another couple weeks, the mosquitoes will be a thing of the past, and we will all be living outside. But first, a trip to Target to pick up this fantastic/attractive/comfy sectional for your yard. Although the pillows are weatherproof, I suggest protecting them from the sun and rain to avoid staining and aging. Otherwise…enjoy, have a drink and relax 🙂

It’s no secret that I love garden stools. Inside or outside, they serve a double purpose; seating and table. If you’re the type to throw a BBQ or two during the summer, you know how important it is to have extra {and moveable AND weatherproof} seating. A few years ago, these were difficult to find {trust me, I had to hunt them down}. Now, they can be found virtually anywhere, and for any price you desire.
