Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific

Greetings! This past week we’ve had rain.But I did manage one day of pressure washing right before it started, so yay me!

I’m just so super eager to get outdoor projects going again in a big way. I have my eye on two pretty nice resin wicker chairs from Home Depot (see HERE, affiliate link) I appear to really really need (but not really), which I just know will inspire other overdue projects! I even landed a gate on the curb that will make the cutest outdoor backdrop, much like I did this one year with a reclaimed wood backing HERE.

So hey, at least my dreams are great! The sun is due to come out next week so fingers crossed I can make some headway with my little bistro seating area plans.

Until then, I did update a few outdoor projects that are worthwhile to check out…

How to build affordable window box planters

If you love the idea of window box planters on either a shed or your home somewhere, this easy tutorial shares how using just scrap wood! i just love how they enhanced my own shed and can’t wait to fill them up again this summer!

Until then, I hope you enjoy the amazing features from last week’s party!

Salt and pepper shakers faux cactus garden


Faux cactus garden with vintage salt and pepper shakers by Sadie Seasongoods

This adorable faux cactus garden is thanks to a few lucky thrift store adventures, landing separate components! Oh my goodness, this is darling!

Which just encourages me to keep collecting stuff. I think I left my purging tendencies behind by Jan 2nd. LOL

  1. Thanks so much for sharing our BIG beaded dragonfly, Donna. She’s been quite the hit with our family and friends.

    I do hope the weather warms up enough for you to get out and play. I always love seeing the most beautiful garden shed on the internet getting dollied up.

    • Michelle, I just adored your dragonfly! Gives a whole new need for collecting wooden beads! We are due for our first hot weather spell next week so a new shed look is definitely coming soon!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing my packing paper wreath Donna. I was so happy to find a new use for packing paper and keep it from the trash bin.
