Simple beauty is found...

... in this piece that looks very old , but isn't.
{TJ Maxx find several months ago}

...in this old galvanized tub that I have planted

with various white flowers and a very light pink
geranium.

...in my fairy house and a cute garden chair.

...in my bicycle basket that I just got spruced up
yesterday.
{I may have to wheel her inside the garage in
case of frost}
...in an old white cement pedestal.
...in simple tiny white flowers.
...in a gorgeous gray and white planter
with a mini rose bush inside.
...in my pink roses that have opened
up beautifully!
Blessings~

Hi Sandi, Love all of your pretty pictures. That is a great TJ Max find. It really does look old. I think I may need to check out our store to see what they have:)

Ok....I seriously need to make more trips to TJMaxx MUCH more often! That trough is awesome!!!!! I did all whites with a wee bit of blush pink with my pots and baskets this year, too. Just love the soft quietness of the look. ♥ Lovely job on your outdoor decor! :)

Oh my goodness, I love that bicycle. I was at the flea market this past weekend and saw the most beautiful old bike, faded pink and white. I would love to have had it, but it was $100! Way too much for me to pay just to sit it in the garden, but that's where it would look best.
