chippy red garden chair…

I’m moving back outside for this post.  my garden is pretty much dead:(  this little chair was found without a seat, so I plopped some flowers into it and I’ve been babying it along.

when I get tired of decorative things in the house, they go to the garden.  this old shelf has a tin center, and I’m hoping it starts rusting-(IF we ever get rain).  I wrapped some old lace around the wreath, and added one of my clay pots.

old china plates are hanging on one section of the fence, next to the garden fireplace.

  1. Love your chair with the plant, Lynn! I know, my flowers look pathetic. The sad thing is that I do water them especially during the heat wave. The only thing still looking good is the fern I have in an urn near our front door. I think I need some tropical plants to deal with this heat wave!

  5. That little chair is just adorable with those pretty flowers Lynn! Love how you hang up decorative items outside...with the wind we get here they would all end up 'decorating' our neighbors yards (not so sure they'd appreciate that LOL)!

  6. I love the chair with the flowers and have something very similar in my front yard. Most of our grass is brown and dead and I think we've lost a lot of plants; even with watering. This summer has been so hot and dry. I absolutely love the plates on the fence, too!

  12. I think those flowers are perfect in that red chair! So gorgeous--love the waterfall effect! I love the pops of color on the shelf too. And...sorry to hear about your garden. :-( We're seven inches below normal rainfall here in SC. It's bad everywhere...

  13. I've got 2 of those chairs in black that I keep on our front porch during the summer months, but yours is so much cuter with the chippy red paint!

    I love the way you've accessorized your fence. Now you've got me thinking....if I nail everything I can find to our fence I won't be able to see the hideous cranberry color!!!

  14. Hi Lynn, I know what you mean about NO rain!! I'm slowly reducing the number of plants I'm trying to keep alive. But the one you've placed in that cute chair looks like it's thriving! Keep it up. :-)
    Thanks for stopping by, Mary Alice

  16. I am not a fan of red--actually for years I would allow no red in the house! But I keep seeing all this cute red stuff and I actually like red with aqua..my family will think I have really lost it if I start doing red:) and I just might. :) Love that chair!

  17. My plants are dying too:( But I have a few planters that I am babying just like yours. Your chair and planter look awesome. I love that you hung plates on the fence! I want to see your house...everything I've seen looks so great!!! Have a nice weekend!

  18. I am just laughing to myself in amazement :)
    I am fairly new to the blogging world and the creativity out there astounds me. Plates on a garden fence! Sometimes I feel like I have entered a fairy tale worthy of a movie situation when I visit a blog and yours is one of them
    LOVE IT!!! :)

  25. The chair and flowers is so pretty and I too like to take things outside (even if just for summer) to hang on the fence, place on the deck or in the garden.

  27. Lynn, the plates on the fence are fantastic. The unexpected finish and pattern are completely wonderful out there. You always have such great ideas. That chair is wonderful with the flowers. Good thinking!

  28. Lynn, your garden photos are so pretty. I love the plates on the fence. And the flowers in the red seat look really healthy. My garden is dead too ... except for the veggie garden which we keep watering. I have a few zinnias that are surviving somehow. It's not been a good year for flowers.

  29. I meant to ask if you got a new header. I don't remember seeing it before. It's really cute.
