I’ve created a new page on the blog to list all of the sources for the front porch throughout its various stages. Below is the design board for the current look, but check out the full page to see more.

I LOVE Bernard! I spotted him yesterday and was so excited to see a close-up of him today. Gorgeous porch too!
Great idea! You always know how to mix all sorts of items together! Thanks!
This is a great resource. Thank you. Do you happen to have a tutorial on how you painted the “rug” on the porch? It’s so lovely.
Yes, I talked a little more about it here.
You know… sometimes I really bemoan the fact that we don’t have Target in Canada. The pink flower pot and watering can are so lovely!
Don’t feel too bad… those were part of the Liberty of London line and everything sold out within days. They’re long gone.
Actually, a lot of the Liberty stuff came back into stock at my Target a few weeks later, and then after that a bunch of stuff became available online again. Some has sold out, but quite a few of the home items are available. I ordered a Liberty curtain and more Liberty storage boxes last month. Not the gardening line though, but then I don’t think Target carries gardening items year round anyway.
I’m obsessed with Bernard the Monkey. Can I ask about how much he was? He is sadly sold out, but I’m still curious :)
I have been in love with that series of outdoor furniture at ikea, but seem to have missed it being in stock out here. This is another great idea board thank you for sharing!
Wow! I had no idea that bench was from Ikea! How unfortunate the monkey and Liberty of London pieces are gone! How can I copy you now?? ;P Thanks for the inspiration, though!
Is that really Kvarno? It looks a lot like Ammero.
Yes, you’re right! Thanks for noticing – I’ve fixed it now.
this is completely unrelated… but i saw this today, and thought of you (and your daughter)! <3

Your porch is deligthful!
Thanks for the detailed item listings.
I can’t believe I never saw it before (probably because it’s covered with fern… ;)) but I LOVE your hanging planter! I’ve been looking for something similar!
Too bad it’s Ikea, since they tend to get rid of all of their seasonal stuff pretty early in the season… I’ll have to wait til next year.
Nooooooooooooo don’t tell me that about the watering can. Maybe mine will have it? :(
Ooooh, love the pink Target pot! And of course your ever-talented painting.
I wish I bought that watering can when my Target had them…
Pier 1 still has that wicker chair,saw it today in our store. It sits low, not on sale yet. Other wicker chairs are on sale, however.
Ok you got me here! LOL
That beautiful watering can would fit and blend in just perfectly with my other garden decorations. Although me and my hubby had agreed on no new decoration items for this year anymore I think I will need to bring up the subject once again.
Actually….Christmas isn’t that far away anymore ;) (hint hint)
I need that adorable watering can… great ideas!!
