My first Outdoor Wednesday post!

Hello! Today I'm playing in Susan @ A Southern Daydreamer's Outdoor Wednesday. I don't have much of a garden...nothing at all really. I do have a very large patio area full of potted plants that I call my "garden" but none of them are picture ready yet. So for my first Outdoor Wednesday post, I thought I'd share my front door decor. Hey! It's outside! ;o)

I love this wire thingamabobber. It's very versatile for the seasons & is more interesting than most wreaths, I think. For Valentine's, I've filled it w/ silk ivies, lace scraps, heart picks, a heart box & a porcelain cherub. Oh! if you look closely, you'll also see a beaded heart bookmark off to the right.



It won't be long before my roses start some blooms & my herbs sprout again. I'll share pics of my "garden" then. Until then, I'll just have to envy all of yours' @ Susan's Outdoor Wednesday party.


After you visit there, swing by Debbie's @ Cottage in the Country & sign up for her free Valentine printables. I made a Halloween banner using her patterns & it made it sooo easy!

Cami,

Sorry I am so late getting here to see your first Outdoor Wedenesday! Your door thingamabobber is precious!! You did good!! I wish I had that flair, I don't have anything up since taking the Christmas wreath down!!

Can't wait to see your herb garden. I've only had mine for a few years and it is WILD!!

Thanks for sharing!! :-)
