Sunny Outdoor Vignettes...
It is a gorgeous Sunny Friday here in Nor Cal at our Home For Sale. As part of the staging process for showings, I set some vignettes outdoors...when the sun is shining. This is the table setup for the kitchen and great room deck. There are 2 sets of double French doors leading out to this deck and it is perfect for entertaining. As you can see, I am not fancy. Melamine plates and plastic ware. Lovely fabric napkins courtesy of my dear friend Donna of Brynwood Needleworks. I feel like Spring is finally here. The lemons are brown wooden ones I painted and I am loving them and the money I am saving from not buying fresh ones each week.
Same deck with my tea cart and some beverage glasses. Nothing matches and that is because we are going for color to draw people outside the house.
This patio is directly outside my Studio French door. I love the simplicity of this vignette. The bench is hand made by Mr. C and very sturdy. You might say I have a bird theme going on with the pillows and another set of fabric napkins from Dear Donna. Thank you my friend. I smile every time I set out these vignettes.
A simple Mason Jar for a cool beverage break while out gathering weeds or pine needles or maybe reading a book. Now that will be refreshing!
Down at the Pond, which Mr. C built after he went to Pond College, I have another simple vignette. There used to be two lovely teak benches but time and weather were not kind to them and they fell apart. So I merely bought the dreaded plastic Adirondack chairs and we actually love them for ease of moving, cleaning and sitting in. More bird themed pillows.
I have a piece of granite sitting on a large vase and it makes a handy table. More of Donna's bird themed napkins and a pitcher to fill glasses. Sipping away the afternoon while enjoying the froggies and the birds serenade us. Life is Good and we are Blessed.
I shall close for now as I am busy with household chores like laundry.
May each of you begin to have Spring and enJOY the most glorious green leaves and colorful flowers and birds, butterflies and froggies. We also have hundreds of caterpillars doing whatever they are doing...crawling, climbing and just being everywhere. Spring Smiles...<3
