Outdoor Bliss

We've been busy sprucing up the outside our our home lately.  Out front we painted the shutters and front door.  The facade of our house is a farmhouse style.   I chose an eggplant color for the shutters and a celery for the door.  I love how it turned out.  Amy and I also spray painted the wicker furniture white.

I love having a front porch to sit and watch the world go by.

I've had this little bench for ages and I gave it a fresh coat of paint to match the front door.  Many a family of birds has called it home over the years.

The patio out back:

Love the magic of spray paint!

It's going to be a scorcher this weekend.  Another heat wave is in the forecast.

Thanks for stopping by!
Stay cool and have a fabulicious weekend.

You have everything looking so pretty. I can remember how pretty your potato vine was last year, also. Looks like little man has the right idea. It is miserable here. Have a great one and stay cool.

Me thinks Little Man looks a lot like his Momma! He's a doll, Kim, but in a very boyish!

Oh my, look at the Little Man! He's now a BIG Man! He's adorable. I hope you've been well, you and your whole family. I've not been blogging lately, I just did a post tonight and I thought I'd visit around. What a nice surprise to see how big your "baby" has gotten! :) Have a wonderful 4th, dear Kim!!
