oh, and I should mention that I would seal my door in marine varnish after I make the holes for the corners…..

then I would have Maggie make me a super fat and cozy padded “mattress” covered in this great Indoor/Outdoor fabric from Calico Corners.  (and today I am lovin that it is called Indigo)


maybe I would have her make me some fun pillows and a neck role too, she is soooooooooo fabulous!

then I need a crisp clean sheet that has been hung on the line and maybe a crisp clean light down white comforter



I have a few old large trees in my backyard, I would then promptly lay down and feel the beautiful warmth of the sun and the wonderful whipping wind on my face as I took a lazy nap.    mmmmmmmmm

think this:  but different

now if you are ready to see some other fun stuff, including her own line of laundry soaps, handbags and travel accessories, go here.

Today Kara shared with me a new terminology. It means:  if you would like a gorgeous container garden,  you need a thriller, a filler and a spiller.   LOVE that terminology!!!!!  

So with that in mind…….I am looking for ideas.

One of my best friends (Lisa), has lived in a lot of places and because of that, I get to visit her in most of those places (go St. Louis!!!)  Love that!!!  In Seattle, she took me to this fabulous store!!!  Ravenna Gardens, OH how I loved that store!!!   So, I am thinking of that fabulous store as I begin to be inspired for my outdoor spaces.   ravennagardens
