    Cost Plus is one of my favorite places to shop and “spruce” up a space. Loads a fabulous and affordable items to enhance and update the home. I love how you incorporated your already loved items with some new pieces to freshen your patio!

    1. Thanks, Valerie! This was such a fun project and now I can’t wait for the weather to warm up for good… 🙂 We’ve had so many teases this spring but then it gets cold again. SO waiting for summer!!

  3. World Market is one of my favorite places to shop. If you like coffee (and I do), they have a wonderful coffee rewards program, as well as shopping rewards in general. I have a difficult time resisting their dinnerware and must confess to having treated myself to this same set of Italian sea life plates. Aren’t they marvelous? Great post!

    1. Thanks Pattie! And yes, I love them too… 🙂 You can look forward to seeing the plates in an upcoming tablscape post, so everyone can see the full spectrum of the art offered! Thanks for visiting!!

    Warmer weather can’t come soon enough (hasn’t this been a crazy spring up here in the tri-state area–it was so cold last night). Trips down the shore, eating outside with the aromas coming from the grill, sitting outside late in the evening watching a star-filled sky and being lulled by all the night sounds–Oh, yes, yes, yes–I am so ready!

  5. Gorgeous Lory! Love everything!!!! Such a stunning outdoor space. And your photos are so lovely!

  6. Lory… just came over from Tina’s blog. WOW!!! Where have you been all my life??? I adore your taste. I will definitely be back. I am now going to have another cup of joe and peruse all your past posts. Have a great week.

    1. Ha ha, thanks so much, Katie!! I actually found your account on Instagram through Tina… 🙂 I love your taste too!! Welcome!

  7. This looks like the perfect spot to chill and relax! We don’t have a World Market here but I’m going to Atlanta next month and I will check it out.

  8. Lory, thanks for the summer inspiration! I want to have an afternoon tea party this summer either on the patio or in the gazebo, and the patio definitely needs some help!
