garden accessories...


What do your outdoor spaces say about your style?
It's an area perfect for infusing some of your personality.

Today my Better Homes and Gardens magazine came in the mail and I noticed
 a featured container gardener mention 'gardens need accessories, just like inside.'
 Her ideas concentrated on pots and plantings, but my favorite accessory is...

a bench!

Besides being functional they pack a ton of personality!
Look at these, can't you just imagine how their respective homes are furnished?

Do you have one?  What's your style?

We have snow in the forecast for Sunday, but I'll be showing you mine soon!


HAPPY WEEKEND, FRIENDS!

Thank you again for reading my ramblings and your moral support with
my projects, good or bad!

I'm always on the lookout for the perfect bench. I haven't run across it yet, but I'll know it when I see it. Snow?...really! How fun!

I love benches! And, you are so right. I consider my style to be traditional and eclectic, and guess what ... I have 2 benches. One is a traditional metal park bench and the other one I made from an old wrought iron table stand :) How funny is that!!

This reminds me that I want to update and get a few new pillows for outside this year. We do have a bench and I'm sure it will get lots of use this year since Sheila is all over the place - will be fun. Have a great weekend Pam! Our weather is the opposite - supposed to get up to 80 on Sunday.

I've been on the hunt for a good bench for a while now. That caned one from Nell Hill's? LOVE IT! I'm sure yours is cute as can be...can't wait to see it! We're on major tornado watch all weekend...I'd rather have snow, especially since we didn't get any this year!

Great inspiration! Now of course I want a bench :) I do have the space so why not right? I love photo number 2, I think that's my style and I need it to big enough for me and my two beagles :) Thanks for sharing.

What beautiful inspiration! I wish I had a house instead of an apartment I would definitely create a lovely garden. xo

I need a bench! I used to have one...I think it was Kmart Martha Stewart, but when we moved I sold it at a tag sale for probably $10 bucks...I want it back now!

I was just in your gorgeous city...we had a day of snow, a day of wind and a few days of really warm temperatures...gotta love Denver. Your city has so many fabulous restaurants...I did a post on Vert Kitchen...have you been? Loved it!

I don't have a bench, but these sure are pretty! I can't wait to see your backyard if it ever stops snowing!
