Friday Style Find

I've been on the look out for the perfect patio umbrella for some time now... like 4 yrs some time. Well, I think it was worth the wait to find this beauty. It was at the Bay and on sale for $36. Really?!
 The best part is that the pattern works so well with the outdoor area rugs and other accents that I'd  already accumulated. Now I just have to tackle some landscaping to hide that hideous expanse of fence. Don't you just love a great find?
Oh, and thank goodness it's Friday. What are your plans? Happy Friday Loves! xo

  11. Gawgis!

    One nice idea for that back fence is something my friend (and designer) Sally Wheat pulled off with flair -- create large interlocking wire circles and train jasmine over them instead of in the typical x pattern.
    It's fresh, low-maintenance and a provides a great visual punch.
    Cheers, Alcira


  12. oooh brilliant idea Alcira! I'll have to look that one up and see if I can do something similar. :)
