I Want to Play!
That's Amy's deck above from
She was asked by Blogher and Pier 1 Imports along with four other bloggers to decorate their patio spaces
using $500 worth of stuff from Pier 1 and then blog about it.
Wouldn't that be fun?
As soon as I found out that Amy was doing this...my mind would wander while I
was working at Pier 1 each day, thinking - "Will Amy get this....or will Amy get that"?
Today was the reveal.
She turned her deck into a gardener's room.
It's so pretty.
After seeing Amy's reveal, I started thinking what things would I have chosen for my own
I decided to just go ahead and make my selections and share here what I would
have bought with $500 worth of Pier 1 credit.
Here is my reveal.....
I don't have any seating out back other than small patio dining chairs so I would need a settee for
the dogs and I to lounge on.
That took a little over half of my $500 budget.
But I had plenty left over for a cushion, a rug, large floor lanterns and small lanterns to hang in my
I'd also get a few of the citronella candles in the green urns to keep bugs away and that cute
little turquoise turtle oil lamp.
Can you envision those things out on my deck?
How about at night with all the lanterns about?
By the way....Pier 1 Imports is having a big sale through the weekend.
I did my shopping based on pre-sale prices since Amy did too.
But I could have bought even more right now because so much of what they have is now on sale.
I just love all the different lanterns shown together glowing at night.
Outdoor cushions are 25% off.
All lanterns $15 and under are 25% off.
Much of the furniture is reduced.
Do go by
and see all of Amy's pretty deck and visit the other bloggers too and see what they did with their
Pier 1 money.
You also get chances to win your own Pier 1 money from all of them.
Hey, if you go in Pier 1 this week or weekend...tell them that you read all about their sale on
Mod Vintage Life, a blog written by one of their employees.
Maybe if enough people tell them...they'll make me their official blogger.
