Home Is Where My Garden Is

Hello friends, it has been hot here, so I spend a lot of time down by our pool.  Me and my side kick Dante.

  We are soon adding another puppy to our family. Another Schnauzer, a sweet little girl we named Bella. A playmate for Dante. We love Schnauzers.  They don't shed and they are so family oriented.

I have been wanting to set a garden themed table for awhile.  What is cuter than a picket fence, cute gloves, a pretty table and lovely plants.

This table is set on our study deck.  We love the sound of fountains.

Green and white checked tablecloth is my inspiration.
I found these darling garden signs at the Dollar Tree.

Aren't these gloves pretty.  I love pink and green together.  I found them on Amazon.

The chargers are white with my American Atelier white plates and pretty little green salad plates.  I added the green flatware and green goblets.  The watering can napkin rings go perfect with the garden theme.

I have had the green wheel barrow for quite some time.
I always dress the side buffet with something pretty.  I hope you are staying cool.
This covid thing is crazy. We mostly stay at home.  Thanks for your visit.

  1. How exciting to be getting a new dog. Bella is adorable and will be great with Dante! I wish you a lot of happiness with her. Our neighbors have 3 schnauzers and they are all great dogs. Your garden themed table is just beautiful. I love the tags you found at dollar tree. It's too bad about the covid virus and I hope you stay safe. The best thing will be when there is a vaccine.

Dante is a very handsome fellow and Bella is adorable. Your table is is lovely. The garden accessories look right at home with the pretty little fence and china. During the time of Covid it's the perfect time to play with the tables and dishes..........

  12. Ay Linda qué alegría incorporar otro cachorro schnauzer a la familia, seguro que Dante estará encantado y vosotros más. Nosotros tenemos un galgo italiano, el piccolo, bueno una galguita, no se si conoces esta raza es buenísima y super cariñosa.

    Tu mesa una delicia, el mantel bonito y todo lo que tienes expuesto muy interesante, por aquí muchísimo calor, pero estamos a 1.300 M de altura y guardandonos del sol se puede pasar. Cuidaros mucho del virus, hasta pronto un fuerte abrazo

  13. Linda, This is a darling table! I love the cute wheel barrow and the little picket fence. How cute!
    Enjoy your pool and cabana. Such an oasis.

  14. Meant to add I'm happy you have a new addition to your family!
