Can't believe it's mid August already - we've been in the new place for over a month! I gotta say this little town is growing on me. Although it's still a bit lonely at times, I do love the peace and quiet and the people here are seriously so friendly.
One of the best parts about moving was our great little outdoor space. We're here so short term that I didn't bother with any gardening, but I did decide to dress up our small deck so we could make the most of it :) (excuse the photos, it's been cloudy here all week!)
I love this space! It's a great place for cozy dinners, and after Ramadan it'll be so nice to sit outside for breakfast or, a even cup of tea in the afternoon :) My husband loves studying out here too for a change of scenery and some fresh air.
Before we moved I had my eye out for a bistro set on CL/Kijiji, but we ended uo getting this set on sale at Canadian Tire. I just love it :) It looks great, it's zero maintenance, plus it folds away for easy storage.
The outdoor rug is the Safavieh Courtyard in sand black from Rugs USA, who FYI have free shipping to Canada!! So I officially love them :) I hesitated before buying it because the graphic design was a little bolder than I'm used to, but I took the risk and now I totally love it! It brings so much more interest to our little outdoor space, plus it makes my toes happy :)
This lovely little plant adds a pretty dose of colour, and at $5 it wasn't a huge investment. I'll admit the flowers were brighter when I bought it a few weeks ago, but at least I haven't killed it :) The planter was a great clearance find at Lowes.
So what do you think :) ? Our outdoor space wasn't initially a big priority, but I really do love how it came together. We have no idea where we'll be come January, let alone whether our next home will have a yard, so I'm soo happy we did up this one and we can enjoy it while we have it!
