Summer Patio Dreams…

Well, for a few days it seemed like Spring was making its entrance and then the weekend was a wash out with lots of rain and heavy winds and alas my hopes were dashed. To console myself however, I have been browsing all of the lovely patio furniture and accessories that the stores are already heaving with. Now, while we don’t all have views like this….

I still see nothing wrong with aspiring to greatness and creating your own little garden sanctuary with some comfy and cool furniture, delicate lanterns, pretty string lights and some luscious flowers.

I was drooling over the Restoration Hardware Garden catalog with all of its gorgeous lanterns and carved furniture:

Amalfi Square Lanterns $19-$129

Avignon Light String $59

Kingston Lounge Chair $870 (!)

Unfortunately, my dreams do not match my pay! Luckily I found some similar loveliness that is more affordable:

Smith & Hawken Marlton Wood Chair $189

Lantern 10 Bulb String Lights in Bronze $53.99

Borrby Lantern $6.99

I really cannot wait to   a. Move into our first house and  b. Enjoy our first summer by the lake (the house overlooks one!)

I hope for a lot of lovely summer evenings with warm breezes, yummy food, pretty lighting and friends ❤
