Patio Flowers

Pin It Now!

There is a chain store near me called Big Lots. I don't really care for this place, it's like a small version of Walmart. The only time I go in there is in the spring because they have some cute garden things. I found this basket there and the resin wicker settee and table. I lined the basket with moss and then I lined it with a plastic garbage bag that I cut some holes into. I added some soil and a beautiful pink ranaculus. I found the little bird at our local drug store. Then I poured a glass of wine, grabbed a magazine and took a small break.

I also live near Big Lots, and every year I replace my garden ornaments with finds from there.

Many times I can find dips and sauces there that are different,and a cheaper price on name brand diet bars that are not outdated.

OMGosh! That's gorgeous. We have a Big Lots and I've never been inside. I'll have to run in and see what they have that would work for my small patio in the new place. xoxoxo

I always go to Big Lots in the spring. I usually love some of the garden decor. Very pretty little planter you created.

I can't believe you might get me to go into a biglots again. That wicker looks pretty good.
But you did a such a nice job with the planter.

I shop at Big Lots...some times I'm lucky and some times I'm not. You found some great items...thanks for sharing your picture!

Love your creation, Cindy! I've been shopping at Big Lots for a few years too, but haven't been there in ages...I'm with you, you have to be picky on what you buy in there. Your stuff looks great, love the bird & plant too. I'm getting into birds lately too. It's that time of year..digging in the dirt!

How fantastic. Seeing all these spring flowers make me wish I could plant some but way too early here. I'm going to go to Big Lots and see what I can find. Hope I'm as lucky as you.

That looks so inviting! It is the picture of Spring. And with the fabulous weather we have been having, I can just see you out there with your feet propped up enjoying your wine!

Your little basket looks amazing. You have a taste of spring on your new table and what better way to enjoy that, than to pour yourself a glass of wine. Cheers!!!
