Hello everyone! Benjamin got his first library card last week, so we've been having lots of fun going to the library and checking out books.
I have a weakness for gardening and decorating books and Outdoor Companion by Mary Engelbreit is one of my favorites.
Isn't this a sweet garden gate?
I also like this one...
...and especially this one!
I starting thinking about my poor pitiful gate. :0) Until we get our fence replaced in a few years, I'm not able to do anything about the wood or color. I decided to look around the garage and yard to see if I had anything to make it a little more welcoming.
I started with this old planter box that my mom gave me and I filled with with impatiens.
I got this garden lantern at a yardsale a few years ago.
This was my wreath from last summer. I hung it on the front of the gate.
I hung this little sign in the center.
Here is the "after" picture. We've had a few rainstorms and everything has survived just fine. Thank you for taking a look!
