Backyard Vignette

Have you seen the latest Country Living?  The cover got me thinking.....and I came up with this.

Actually, I owe props to my friend Chris.  Last year she had an adorable scene set up on her front porch. 

I may add ice skates and/or a pair of skis to the scene, after we get some snow, but for now I like it.

You might remember this sled; I blogged about it here.

I'm really excited about using it in this scene. 
Everything else I found in my travels to Sally Ann's.

I've discovered I have an affinity for the old plaid Thermos brand thermoses. 
It seems like every time I walk into Sally Ann's, one just happens to follow me home.  
The black lunch box; that was a curbside find.....

I would also like to thank my friends, Angela and Joe, for donating the birch logs to the cause.  They had no idea what I was going to do with them.  After sending Angela an email asking where I could get some, I found them neatly stacked on my sidewalk the very next morning.  Thanks guys.

This scene is set up in a corner of my backyard; it's a great focal point as you enter my backyard.

I love seeing this every day.

It just makes me smile.

Thanks for stopping by.
