Outside Our Place & Serious Progress~

Hi everyone just wanted to check in and let you know what we've been up to and to give you a look at our outdoor home progress so far. We are over the moon happy about the way things are turning out!
We went from this:Which I shared @ Funky Junk Interiors Porches and Patio Party, Momma Hens Frugal LifeWhatever Wednesday link party, & Savvy Southern Styles Wow Us Wednesday !
To this: Check me out @  Faith Trust & Pixie Dust Fab Friday Linky Party&Delightful Orders Inspiring Thursday Party!
So let me give you a quick rundown of exactly how much hard work we've done. We seeded our yard which is still a work in progress but the before clearly shows you we have come a long way!
We repainted the porch furniture for a more unified look and added pretty rugs with a pattern that I LOVE!!!
Sharing this @Primp's Primp Your Stuff Wednsday , Vintage Wanna Bee Talent Tuesday, & Fingertips On The Fridges Feature Yourself Saturday!

Cute solar lights perfectly spaced by my sweetie adds a lil light for our evening talks on the porch. We also put in two flower beds with stacked stone and added a few porch plants in cute thrifted containers.
Instant window box

Love my Rusty bucket!

 I went the simple route with the flowers by choosing low maintenance plants with instant eye catching color and I have since added one of my all time favs the caladium to fill in.

Impatients, sweet potato vine, and geraniums
Course I had to have toadstools for butterfly's to sit when they come to visit. :)


We  painted our front door with leftover paint from the pantry redo and added our Ram sign to finish it off.
 We still have a few things to do like add shutters to the windows, find cute numbers for the mailbox, and mulch the beds. I have so many other plans for the yard and I cant wait til they are all done so that we can sit and just enjoy the summer. Shared this over @A Bowl Full Of Lemons One Project at a time linky!

 Thanks for letting me show you what Shan and I have been working on and I'm hoping' I've helped to motivate some of you to get your "around the house" projects done!  Well I'm off to make a wreath for our front door talk with you soon!
This is being shared with Not Just A Housewifes Show Me What You Got Party , Delectable Home show and tell link up party and The House In Roses Show off Your Cottage Party!

This is a wonderful beginning with so many positive changes!
I can just visualize the grass all filling in beautifully and the new plants growing up and creating beautiful pops of color with their blossoms.
Enjoy the fruits of your labor, it's looking great!
