I think the addition of the map (from a Jr. High in Hutchinson , MN) and the big letter P...both plastic...hanging on the siding really complete the cozy look I was going for.  We used thumbtacks to attach them...so far so good :)
Love my vintage cooler...its stored many things in its life at my house :)
Roller skates plant holder...why not?  I think I might need to add something underneeth to hold them steady in a storm.
My husband made this table using left over decking.  It comes in very handy for serving and extra seating.
My chicken feeder is multi-tasking.
These crates will be great for holding extras so I wont have to leave the party for more chips and buns :)
I have a weird affection for old sprinklers...I think they look fun just sitting around.
Do you remember my old crate planters? 
My husband welded bases for these old Nut & Bolt crates...love the 3 sections and that cool writing.
My son said...It looks like inside, outside  I guess I got the look I was going for.
The deck steps down the concrete patio with our vintage headboard fence.  You might remember that one too.
Another spot I plan to enjoy this summer!

I'm letting the indoors spill out on to the deck this year...creating a cozy little spot to relax and unwind. Let me show you around...
