for the outdoors

the day before yesterday it was 85 degrees. 

that's as absurd for march here as 20 degrees is, which it was last week. 

i'm not complaining about warmer weather (tho 85 seems a little aggressive) but it's certainly kicked my ass in gear to get the outdoor spaces ready for cocktails, cookouts and plantings. 

fringe patio umbrella - i am partial to this white tho i suspect a white umbrella is a really not so great idea. thankfully we have options


james beard's outdoor cooking 1960 1st edition - what a fun gift for anyone who loves to cook. the illustrations are super fun. 


green patio set - perfect color, perfect size for a cocktail and a partner.


skirted effect coffee table - just so great.


cherub planter - not your average planter. love this one too. 


black & white striped pink corded pillows - a steal. 


french sunburst garden chairs - i adore these chairs. 


outdoor rug - excellent price. and what a statement. 


farmhouse cupboard - something perfectly weathered to store gardening things.
