Outdoor Pretties!

These pictures were taken at my friend Judy Hills http://jhilldesigns.net/ open house show several months ago. I have already posted the inside pictures, but I was looking for some outside inspiration and remembered that I had not posted these pictures yet!

I just love this area and the white slipcovers are just gorgeous!
This is the little outdoor shed, it's so cute! The burlap drapes really add to the charm of this sweet little shed!
Lovely chandelier hanging from the tree.


It's nice to see some greenery, everything around here is so dry and burnt. I think we have broken a record for so many days of the temps being over 100 and no rain! I'm praying that we get some soon!
Cute little potting bench!
Hope you enjoyed the outdoor tour, here's wishing for cooler weather and some much needed rain! Today I'm joining Cottage Floral Thursday @ http://fishtailcottage.blogspot.com/ and Debra @ http://commonground-debrasvintagedesigns.blogspot.com/ be sure to stop by and visit all the other participants!

Yes, I've enjoyed the outdoor tour!
I'm also very jealous of all the beautiful elements she has used for her outdoor spaces. I'm in love with the potting shed!

So pretty! Although I've never been, I always love seeing photos of her open houses. It's been horrible here this summer as well. Everything is so brown it looks like the middle of winter. I wish! :)

Beautiful pictures! It looks like you had a lovely time, she is very talented! I love the chandelier!

For us, it's been quite the opposite in the rain department! We've had so many huge storms this year! We've lost our electricity 3 times already this Summer and out of the 7 years we've lived here, we've only lost it these three times!

Having seen Judy Hill's space at Marburger was amazing to say the least. Why am I not surprised that her home is just as wonderful?!! Such an incredibly talented woman! Thanks for sharing your photos!

Wow this is all amazing, I love all of it. My garden is not dry but completely overgrown. We have had so much rain and heat this summer. I feel sorry for you guys down there, ugh!

Cottage charm ... the soft, cool colors betray the suffering heat. I am so sorry you all have had such a blistering summer ... I shall think positive thoughts for cooler weather accompanied by soft rains.

All my best to your for a Happy Friday! Coolest of hugs, I send your way!

Oh I did enjoy the Tour, thank you for taking us along... this space really is done well and so inspiring! I have several outbuildings on our property that I need to restore and transform, so I'm always looking for such inspiration to draw upon...
