~A new garden settee~

My girlfriend gave us her antique outdoor patio set and I’m absolutely in love! 

We set it on our front lawn and it adds so much to the space.  Eventually we would love to tear up part of the grass and add a compound dirt to give it more of a garden feel.


You can find us here just about everyday around 4 in the afternoon watching the kids play with all their friends.  I really do live in the best neighborhood!
I hope the sun in shinning for you too!

  1. It looks beautiful against the grass and flowers! It makes me want to head out to sit, with a good book, ice tea and barefoot… so I can feel the cool green grass on my feet 🙂


  2. Love it. So pretty and what a great place to sit and watch the children. Hugs, Marty

  3. Kristin, you have some great friends 🙂 A friend gave me an old beat up chair, the other day. She said she instantly thought of me. LOL! This is a beautiful set. It really adds a lot to the front of the house. I can just picture you sitting there and watching the kids 🙂

  4. I am so happy for you and sad at the same time. We had this same set in front of our house for 19 years and 3 years ago this summer someone came by in the night and stole the whole set. I was so sad. I still am. It really brightened up our front patio area. Your's looks great! Enjoy it!

  9. Kristin I remember this look when I was growing up!! They always reminded me of something that would be on a Southern plantation. The pop of white is a great addition to your front yard and it will be a nice place to sit and watch your boys play ball, Enjoy,Kathysue

  13. You lucky thing, you! Why can't I have friends that give me antique patio sets?! Geesh! Justice, I just want a little justice!

  14. Ok, so the set is just lovely – but what I want to know is… how do I get me some of that grass!? Oh, Australia. Yellow is the new green here. Hope you had a gorgeous Easter, lovely one. x

  15. This makes it
    look like "a
    garden" instead
    of "a yard" as
    the Brits like
    to point out!
    Now THAT's a nice
    xx Suzanne

  17. So pretty! With the snow (!) and rain we've been getting this week, it will be awhile before I'll be able to sit outside. Our lawn is still brown from the spring thaw.

  18. Looks GREAT!! What a wonderful friend to share such a fab set of furniture! Enjoy the sunny days!
