You know what time it is…. it’s almost porch and patio time!!! This weather, here in Ohio, has been INSANE. We are just ITCHING to get outside, but it actually snowed a few days ago. I have lived in this area my entire life and even I was shocked. You can always plan on a chance of snow flurries this late in the season, but I don’t remember actual accumulation. We got about an inch. It didn’t stick around for long, of course, but nevertheless, it was a shock to our systems. We are already mentally prepared for outdoor living because we spend so much time on our porch.
I have been planning a few new looks for the front porch here at the cottage. I reminded Deb that in a few weeks, we will have a porch on the house to decorate as well. That is totally our style. Our house will be far from done, but the porch will be decorated so that we can enjoy our times outside. My plan is to have lots of different styles of planters for all of out outdoor spaces. I grabbed this pair of concrete pots from Zulily a few days back and cannot wait until they arrive.
Zulily launches a new store every single day feature thousands of new items. It’s such a fun website to find unusual things. They carry so many great items from the categories beauty and wellness, organization, outdoor living and garden shop, and so many more. Another cool thing that I love about Zulily is their weekend shipping special. When you place an order with paid shipping (Friday-Saturday), it opens a window of free shipping on additional orders for the rest of the weekend. Once you’ve paid that first shipping charge, they will try to consolidate subsequent purchases into a single shipment, and give you the lowest-priced shipping option for free for all items ordered by 11:59pm PT on Sunday. I take advantage of this deal quite often.
I thought it would be fun to round up some of my favorite things for outdoor living from Zulily. And, this post comes just in time for Mother’s Day, as well. You can maybe find some great ideas for gift giving to mom or even to yourself, like I did. However, you must act fast if you find something you love, because their deals are available for a limited time only or while supplies last. Oh… and they have a big event going on right now. Their solar lights are up to 40% off.
