Inspiration Tuesdays - Backyard Beauties.

I know that our winter has been maybe one of the most mild (ever?), but I can't help but start to feel that itch for picnics, bike rides, and lots of ice cream.  Also, backyard plans. Lots and lots of backyard planning. I am definitely thinking spring.  

I've been super inspired by outdoor spaces that feel inviting and warm - the type of backyard that you never want to leave.  We have this terrible dilapidated garage smack dab in the middle of our backyard and with the first sign of warmer weather, that puppy is coming down. However, until then, lets just think about what kind of amazing furniture and gardens we can plan.

I really love spaces that utilize a lot of cement mixed with sturdy wood.

Oh and hammocks!  Nothing makes a space more cozy or inviting then a hammock.  I'll take five please.

Now to move on to gardens.  I plan on hitting up a couple gardening seminars, so fingers crossed I will be able garden up a storm.  Maybe dabble into veggie gardening as well!

Well now I'm sure you are all excited about spring too....it's exciting!  So last but not lease, I'll leave you with my dream backyard.  Only with more grass, but I think you get the idea.
