The Pinterest-ing Great Outdoors ...

With the beautiful summer season finally upon us, I thought I'd show you some of my favorite pins from my "Great Outdoors" pinboard .... 'cause that's where I'd prefer to spend my time right now!

OK, so I do have a garden update for you later in the week .... but I can tell you one thing:
My garden does NOT look like this ....  (I wish!)
 I've got the white house, I've got the porch, I just need the swing!
Apparently, this is Ralph Lauren's ranch in Colorado.
I think I'd like to go there.
Maybe even live there.
But not with Ralph Lauren.
That would just be .......weird.
Hell-o!  You all know I love me a good ladder!  Love this one at an outdoor, evening wedding reception.
A lot going on here .... and I love it all!
 Love, LOve, LOVE these painted planter boxes --- too cute!
And I'm pretty sure I've showed this already ..... but it deserves a repeat.
If I had this in my backyard ..... life would just be good.
Even BETTER than it is now.
Leave it to Pottery Barn!
Love the simplicity here .... I think it's kinda cool to put indoor dining furniture OUTDOORS.....
Bright, white, clean, simple, refreshing .... LOVE.
Please go check out my Great Outdoors Pinboard for the references to these great pics!
(And feel free to visit my other boards while you're there!:-)
