It is finally springtime in Chicago. Over the weekend, my husband cleaned out the garden. We can see that the peonies, lilies, and tulips are sprouting. We removed our garden furniture from winter storage, and cleaned everything off. The deck is ready! Now all we need is warm weather, and our children and their friends can play in the yard and splash around in their little wading pool.
This year lemonade and snacks will be served on my new Painted Garden melamine set. I blogged about these painted pieces the other day. Below are photos of the artwork applied to sorts of melamine items. Sturdy and colorful, this set is great for summer entertaining! The pieces do not break, thank goodness–something always gets kicked over with the kids running around. 🙂 The artwork has fun geometric elements mixed with bright, painted florals. I cannot wait to use this set! I will update this post when I know where the items can be purchased:
