“I supplement my outdoor decor with colorful, durable elements that brighten my day.”

Living in a small space means making the most of every square inch, so at KearceCrafted Farms we love our great outdoors.

Even if the lilies aren’t in bloom, this metal sunflower smiles up at me when I get home.

Here in northwest Florida, we spend most of our summer outside, and while I love pretty flowers, my green thumb sometimes goes dormant. So, I supplement my outdoor decor with colorful, durable elements that brighten my day. These pops of color and fun do not, thank goodness, need to be expensive. The copper-colored sunflower above, was a hand-me-down from my mother, and she probably bought it at Ace Hardware years ago. It wears its age well and is a cherished addition to my outdoor decor.

Tractor Supply, one of my favorite spots to shop, is currently offering free UPS ship to store on all Tractor Supply Company orders, so now is the time to order outdoor ornaments as well as seeds and bulbs.


This salvaged, broken boogie board makes a great tub tray table.

Believe it or not, someone abandoned this broken boogie board on Panama City Beach last year, so, of course, I salvaged it. What a perfect tray table for the redneck hot tub, a 100-year-old claw foot tub that we bought at T&W Flea Market and have cherished ever since.

I never throw away an old bedspread.

While this round chaise lounge has been with us for quite some time, it’s original upholstery was bland and boring, so I dressed it up with an old bedspread and throw pillows. Now it brightens my back deck and my day!

So, if you have beautiful flowers and a full-time green thumb, bravo. But if not, don’t be afraid to experiment with your own outdoor decor.
