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. :)

Hibiscus


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!
