Balcony Business

As we continue trying to get our itty bitty balcony ready for spring/summer, there are just a few little final touches I'd like to add (ok, I'm totally dreaming here, but just GO with me).

Either one of these hanging chairs would make the perfect breezy little spot for sipping mojitos with homegrown mint and chatting with friends. (via Being Red)

I've been bitten by the gardening bug, and am getting ready to start seeds for tomatoes, basil, bell peppers, cilantro, thyme, and squash (sounds like a spaghetti sauce garden!)... I remember seeing this on Decorno AGES ago, and have wanted it ever since.

Who wouldn't want to throw all of their organic waste into this pretty compost bucket?! Since I'm going to be planting up a storm this year, I think this would be the perfect helper for making nutritious food for my leafy little friends.

Everyone needs their own little G-nome to keep the garden fairies away!

Several of these recycled lanterns would make the lighting just right, dontcha think?

This outdoor rug (in blue) is JUST what I've been searching for.
Durable, fun pattern, and rinses clean after a summer of fun!

If you had unlimited fundage, and lots of time to spend outdoors, what lovely finds would you add to your own outdoor space? Are you a 'hammock' or a 'picnic table'? A 'butterfly garden' or a 'bird house'?

I can't wait to see how the veggie garden turns out?

Didn't mean to put the question mark in there! Ha ha.

Stephanie - Need the gnome now! Love him!

Shawna - When I read the first comment, I actually thought it was QUITE appropriate to end with a question mark... I can just hear your voice asking it while you shrug your shoulders and smile!
