Our home is very open to views to the outdoors.
There are french doors in almost every room of the house with views to the back yard . . .
and the golf course beyond.
So the outdoors is a integral part of our home and I love bringing the outdoors in.
Whether it be with many plants or garden elements.
Today, I decided to bring my 5 tiered vintage plant stand that was out on the upper back porch,
feeling a bit lonely without a flower or plant to adorn it.
Gathering some of my ironstone pitchers and creamers I placed them on the stand and added
some yellow alstroemerias of cheery yellow tones.
I gained inspiration to do this from a friend and fellow blogger in which you will see at the
end of this post.
As you can see, I love garden elements in my home, as seen in this concrete garden finial.
I have been having fun collecting these vintage ironstone pitchers on my travels with
It is always fun placing the unexpected on the fireplace hearth.
When I brought this piece in from the porch and placed it on the hearth, my hubby looked at me
as if I had two heads . . . a look that I often get.
But when I was done, he gave it the thumbs up!
It was a little bit of a gloomy day when I took these pictures, lots of shadows and the garden
finials are truly the same color.
So what do you think? Do you give this bit of how I brought the outdoors in a thumbs up?
The real test is my granddaughter . . . she notices and approves everything!
Want to know where I got this inspiration?
From Mary Alice of Chateau Chic!
Here is her vintage plant stand with vintage ironstone pitchers.
Love that her gorgeous stand has 10 tiers.
I will be on the hunt for some more vintage garden elements
that I plan to incorporate into my home.
Do you love to bring the outdoors in, especially that Spring is approaching?
Have a wonderful day, hopefully enjoying the outdoors!
