  1. It was a beautiful weekend, wasn’t it? I played outside most of the weekend and got lots of spring outdoor and projects done. Still lots to do but I enjoy every bit of it.

  2. I love your yard. Pinned the picture of your fire pit area to my pinterest board, and this sitting area is adorable too. You did a great job with your yard!

  3. As the hail falls outside my window, I wish I was sitting in your pretty garden! I love all your pretty colors. Happy springtime!

  4. Very very nice Melissa. Will your yard stay that way? Hope you don’t have lots of wind where you live so all your pretties will stay put. You must have worked really hard to make everything look so pretty. Really love the metal guards on the shutters. Very pretty, nice little touch. Happy Week

  5. What a pretty spot to enjoy all the fruits of your labor, Melissa! Love the Relax sign above the bench. It was nice enough for people to be out again clearing their beds yesterday. Makes me almost wish I wasn’t in a condo where they do it for you. However, after a weekend with my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter, my back is grateful I don’t have to do that anymore! : )

  6. adorable! your yard looks like such a beautiful place!

  7. Looks like a wonderful little spot to have some iced tea. ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. I love your seating area Melissa. Very well done.

  13. This look amazing. I love the sign too!

  14. What a cute outdoor sitting area. I really like it. You gave me an idea to do with my yard. Wish spring would come where I live. We are having April showers right now. Thanks for sharing. Karie

  15. Love this backyard area! Your colors are so relaxing!

  20. We also had glorious weather and got to spend time in the garden. I have a similar bench, but mine is falling apart – we paid $1 for it. That doesn’t stop me from sitting are reading on my bench.

    I hope your spring weather continues and you get more garden time.

  21. The outdoor area looks great! Perfect spot to relax ๐Ÿ™‚ Autumn greetings from Australiaโ™ฅ ~Pernilla

  22. Love your sitting area! It is beautiful! I have a new weekly link party which is live now and I would love if you stop by and link up this wonderful post! Hope to see you there Hugs, Maria

  23. Love the addition of quilt and pillows to the bench… I have a similar little vignette in my back yard but with wet springs and sometimes wet summers it is hard to have some fabric like this!


  24. Sooo beautiful! I cant wait to cuddle up there with a good book

  25. This is so pretty! I love the pillows, the shutter and your “relax” sign. This looks like a beautiful area to spend some time sipping tea and reading a magazine. ๐Ÿ™‚

    We’d love for you to share this with our link party, Much Ado About Monday, if you have a chance. ๐Ÿ™‚


  26. ooh, what a great spot. that does it, i’m hitting that follow button, lol.

  27. Wow, that is a beautiful space you created! I can hardly wait for Spring to arrive, but my backyard is still full of snow here in Manitoba, Canada.

  28. I love this look! You did a great job on this! Nicole

  29. visiting from redoux. I love the seat, cushions and quilt. oh I would like to read a book there

  30. Melissa, this is absolutely CHARMING!!! This is one of the cutest outdoor sitting areas I’ve ever seen. It looks truly magazine worthy. You and your family did a terrific job on this.

    Visiting from Seasonal Sundays — have a wonderful day!


  31. What a sweet little seating area you have created. What really caught my eye though was your shutters..just ADORABLE embellishment on them! I AM INSPIRED! ๐Ÿ™‚
    I am a first time visitor and found you on Marty’s party.

  32. This is such a gorgeous little area you have!!! It’s beautiful! Thanks for linking up at Whatever Goes Wednesday last week. Your Sitting Area was the most viewed link, so we’ll be highlighting it at tomorrow’s party. We hope you’ll stop by and join the party again!!
