my latest mission.
when it comes to decorating it is a long process for me to find the exact item for each space. i've been looking for a container for my succulents and i wanted it to match the green on my front porch. i wasn't able to find a garden pot, so i realized that i needed to think outside the box. the most obvious choice was to use a baking container. i was recently in home goods and i found this wonderful green chantel baking dish. i knew the moment that i eyed it, that it would match my porch decor perfectly! the rest is history. i have found that succulents are the best plant for my outdoor garden, it survives my brown thumb neglect. i hope you are enjoying your summer and thanks so much for stopping by. here is the post for the rest of the week:
friday ~ my latest inspirations
sunday ~ learn what eco-friendly product i'm using to keep the deer from destroying my roses!
i put a layer of small pebbles on the bottom of the pot for drainage and then combined about 2/3 potting soil mixed with 1/3 sand.
here is a view of my front porch. i just love these chairs and our sunbrella pillows.
we have been busy working on our garden and so, here are the outdoor lights we recently bought at target. this year we decided to get lights that are have a outer metal shade to protect the light bulb. every summer we have had too many lights break and then we have glass near out pool. so, i'm hoping that these string lights prove to be a good investment. i just love the look of them on our deck above our pool.
