~add curb appeal with doormats~

Spruce up your entry with fun and interesting doormats that fit your personality!
The one pictured below can be found here.
I love it's braided look and you can't go wrong with jute, it fits a bunch of styles.

To create the look from Studio McGee below, you can layer this doormat on this rug.

Jillian Harris' cute "hello" doormat can be purchased here.

I love this one in black.

You can find a selection of monogrammed doormats here.

There is also a plethora of cute doormats here.
Something for everyone!

~outdoor furniture deals~

I talked a little bit about how we are in the process of redoing our wood deck.
The deck we put in ourselves about 10 years ago, and it had started rotting pretty bad.
The railing was rickety and it was becoming a safety issue.
So we are in the process of redoing it, this time with stamped concrete. 
It has been a l o n g process and we are only about 1/2 way done.
The deck is huge, almost 1,000 sf, and I am looking at it wondering how in the heck we are going to fill it without spending a fortune on outdoor furniture.
I might wait until next year to furnish it, but I have been looking at a few sales and some affordable pieces, so I thought I'd share my finds with you here.

My taste is Restoration Hardware, my budget is more TJ Maxx. 

So, the happy medium......

This set from Joss And Main is pretty, but we would likely need a couple sets.

I've always wanted a black and white striped umbrella too!

This set is on mega sale, but I wonder how comfortable it would be?

I am sort of in love with these chairs and they are dirt cheap!

You really get a lot of product for little money here:

I love, love, love these:

These are fabulous!

Love this coffee table:

This table is metal but to me looks like wood. With the weather in Seattle and the fact that we leave our furniture out year round, metal is a clear winner.

I've also been looking at planters. I love the looks of this one.

This one is traditional and very pretty. Would look great with boxwood topiaries:

Which reminds me, our window boxes are in need of updating too. Not sure they will last through the winter.

I will be sharing photos of the new deck as soon as it is done! 
I cannot wait.

~back to school~

Usually I hit TJ Maxx for clothes or items for my home.
But they really have some great accessories for dirt cheap that can be used in dorm rooms or for homework stations at home!
Here are some of my favorites I have compiled, but take a look for yourself here!
You never know what you are going to find!

I love the idea of loading up exterior steps for fall with crocks and mums like Liz did.

I've bought a few new goodies at this sale. Who doesn't love a sale?
This blog always inspires me and makes me want to paint everything bold colors. Too bad I am not that brave. She can totally pull it off.
I have found this to be the most inexpensive place to buy glass jars like the ones pictured above.

Happy weekend everyone!

I know summer isn't over quite yet, but I am already thinking about fall.

I also have an ever-growing recipe board on Pinterest if you'd like to follow along here.
