This week we have had some amazingly beautiful weather! It has been sunny in the 70's all week with no humidity. I wish I could bottle it up and save it forever! I've tried to go outside everyday and enjoy it while it lasts. Because, you know it won't!
One way I've done that is by sprucing up my front porch. I bought some ferns to go beside the front door and hung my magnolia wreath on the door. A new larger door mat was placed front and center too.
I like these extra large door mats better than the cute small ones. I want one that will trap water and really clean your feet well before coming inside. This one fits the bill. It's from Walmart.
I also added some pretty outdoor pillows to my wicker bench. They are from Pottery Barn.
I still need to repaint this bench. I hope to find a better replacement for it, altogether, since it's not really intended for outdoors. These pillows add a pop of color and coordinate well with my house color.
One of my favorite things that I've added out here are my new lights. They are from Build.com. I wanted a more "farmhouse style" look. These are perfect for that. But, at night, they look even better. They cast the light down onto the porch floor and make the house look better at night.
After the pollen is gone, I will do a thorough cleaning of the porch and furniture. Right now, it's pointless.
I noticed we have a bird nest up in the eaves of our porch too. The momma bird is often seen sitting in it. She flew away when I came outside to take these pics though. I think it may be a house wren.
Have you started sprucing up outside for Spring too?
I hope you all have a wonderful Easter this weekend.
Thanks for stopping by!
