As warmer weather approaches and the trees begin blossoming, I find myself wanting to spend more and more time outdoors.  If your outdoor area is anything like mine, it needs some refreshing for the warmer weather.  This is the perfect time to hit up your favorite Goodwill to score great deals on outdoor finds!

I recently found TWO of these stellar planters at Goodwill for only $12.99 each!  These type of garden pots can cost anywhere from $30 to $200 so I knew I had found a great deal!  I considered painting them in a glossy black, but I actually love the patina on them.  After adding a couple of inexpensive plants (that I hope will survive the Spring), they made my front porch much more regal.

I still have a back patio to refresh for spring so I’m currently searching for more planters, outdoor seating and tables, outdoor art and candle holders.  I found these fabulous finds at a single store last weekend!

Plant stands look fabulous indoors and outdoors!  If you have a shaded outdoor space (like mine), you might consider opting for faux plants in a raised pot.

I’m considering going back for one of these umbrella holders.  With spring showers, I always find myself looking for a spot to put my wet umbrella!

I’m not sure if everyone in the DC area has the same ridiculous quantity of mosquitoes in the spring and summer that I do, but I appreciate that I can even find Tiki torches secondhand! I don’t have a spot to put these, so I’m searching for an iron candle holder that can hold my huge supply of citronella candles to keep those mosquitoes away!  I’d love to see your outdoor finds and your favorite outdoor places to enjoy them this spring!
