Outdoor Spaces

This time of year is so enjoyable. When you live in a small house it feels like you double your house size when you spend so much time in your outdoor spaces. I so love looking at all the blogs and their outdoor decorating.  I am the most inspired by Lynn at Shabby Story. If you want to get really inspired by outdoor decor you should check her out!

Today I thought I would post some of my lovely outdoor spaces.
















What a beautiful time of year this is!


My wish is that this finds everyone enjoying beautiful weather and flowers.

Thanks so much for taking time out to visit my blog!

Edited to say: Thanks so much to Janae for making my new blog header--I love it!

Sandi, your garden is very pretty. Love the nest and the bloom chair.
I am certainly enjoying the sunshine still on holiday. Only one day left and then home. I am sitting in the cabin overlooking the bay with the sun streaming in through the window. Just so relaxing. Had a big hike this morning and am pooped. :)

Hi Sandy,
Your garden is so pretty and it's so lovely to look at as I have my first cup of coffee this morning.
Makes me want to go to the nursery and get some more flowers.
Have a beautiful weekend sweet friend.

Love the pictures of your patio and yard. Its a great way to start the day - outside with a cup of coffee or tea.
I love the color of your house. Was it that color when you moved there? Would love to know the color's name.

Loved all your beautiful outdoor vignettes. How you must enjoy being in your yard, especially this time of year. So lovely and truly peaceful. Your header isjust gorgeous. I knew the minute I saw it that Janae had done it for you. She is SO talented and has the gift of design like her mother!! Also she is very computer savvy...sooooo impressed Janae. Wish I had that talent and know how...I can't even add gadgets to my sidebars or do a header:D You both are amazing!!

Ooh, I really like your new blog layout!! Great job! And I am so jealous of your garden/flowers. The Oregon climate is so ideal for flowers (not so much my climate here in Nor Cal!)

I love the new header too Sandy!
You've put together a charming space to enjoy (looks like someone already is)!!

Pam said...

Very pretty. Love the new header too with your blue in it.
