Patio-rific!

Happy summer!! Yay! There's nothing I love more than summer- and summer requires a good patio, right? Right. So, when we moved into our little bungalow here, I wanted the backyard to be a fun place to hang out. Enter some new patio furniture and some plants i'm going to try really hard not to kill... and wah-lah! So please enjoy some pics of our little outdoor abode.
(More house pics to come soon)

Calvin LOVES the new retro red chairs!

Yummy basil

Ok, they sell these ceramic garden stools at Pottery Barn for $159!!! What?!! So I almost fell over when I saw these at Garden Ridge for $12! (That's right- I said $12). Yes, they were a hideous ghetto gold, but that's nothing a little spray paint can't fix. I LOVE them!

Fun Moroccan star- I want some more of these for our trees.

Aren't these little furry flowers so cute?

Another ceramic garden stool- Love the bright red!

Roses and peonies-pretty.

Petunias, you mean. Not peonies.
