It seems like peonies are literally everyone’s favorite flower! And I’m not surprised. Because really, is there a prettier bloom out there?! Something about their fluffy beauty just makes my heart skip a beat! And I’m sure the fact that they are here for only a couple of weeks makes them that much sweeter. I wait for 50 weeks for them to appear and then buy them like crazy for two!
Are you all getting excited for summer? I know I definitely am! Lately I’ve been trying to clean up and refresh our outdoor space in the backyard. Spring gets me so excited to have bar-b-ques, swim parties, and revel in the freedom that summer seems to bring. In the spirit of that, our blogging group is talking “outdoor spaces” in our monthly blog hop this month!

Have any of you been planning on refreshing or re-doing your plants this spring? I don’t know about you, but around this time of year I get so inspired to do a “backyard refresh!” Did you know that one of the easiest and least expensive ways to refresh any outdoor area is to plant some beautiful annuals or perennials? For us, the area we use most is our backyard patio. Not only do we entertain our guests there, we spend time swimming and enjoying that area frequently so I really wanted to add some colorful details to brighten the space!
I’m sure you’re familiar with these bottles, even if you didn’t actually know the name for them. Antique demijohns have grown immensely popular in the last several years. So much so that reproductions abound. You know when the chain stores start copying them that they have morphed into a full-fledged trend!
An ottoman used as a coffee table, is actually one of my favorite decorating techniques. It’s a great way to have extra seating in a room, so they work really well in smaller homes. They also add a softness to a space, so if you have a lot of hard edges or your room is “all legs” (meaning you have no slipcovered furniture) they can also help even that out. Also, if you need a larger size coffee table which can sometimes be hard to find, an ottoman can often be ordered in a custom size to get exactly what you need. And of course, they are super comfortable to put your feet up on! For that reason, coffee table ottomans work especially well in family rooms.
Hi there and Happy Friday! Every month I get together with a group of bloggers to do a monthly blog hop. Well, this month we’ve decided to talk flowers! Flowers are in abundance this time of year, so we thought it would be fun to focus on decorating with flowers. And who doesn’t love doing that?! If you’ve been here before, you know that flowers are a big part of my decor.
