The sun has come out and it’s just got me wishing and dreaming of an outdoor life full of bright colours, comfy outdoor seating, BBQs and ice lollies.
Here are a few outdoor essentials I’m currently coveting:
Oh how I want to lounge, swing and snooze my hours away in one of these. This rainbow coloured beauty is from www.handmadehammocks.co.uk, and I’m so in love with it.
Now at the moment in our garden we have a rather modest but functional picnic bench tucked away in a shady corner but as the sun shines and I day-dream some more I think I’d love a big old comfortable rattan set of furniture like this one from Tesco.com. Clearly I’d need to win the lottery but a girl can dream can’t she?
Twinkle, twinkle little multicoloured lights, I’m a fan of these chains of fairy lights for everywhere, I hate having to take down the Christmas lights and this year most of the lights I left around the house got to stay for all year round sparkles. These bright and colourful globes are from Ikea here. They have some great outdoor lighting options including stars and bird shapes (I know!) and the best thing about them is they are not only glamour for your garden but are solar powered so totally eco friendly and boring battery free!
Now in dream land I am totally desiring one of these amazing wood fired ovens by The Stone Bake Oven Company, fancy that, a gluten free pizza in the oven, wood fired roast chicken on a Sunday, uhhhh my mouth is watering just thinking about it. But in reality a BBQ would do and something like this one below would be just dandy….
This simple BBQ is all I really need and at the moment it’s reduced to £49.99 from £99.00 at Argos here. But as I was looking for BBQ I happened to stumble upon this genius idea…
This is the eco answer to the disposable BBQ, I have to admit to buying lots of these as we haven’t committed to a BBQ of our own yet but this would be fantastic to take camping or have at a party. You can cook your burgers on it and/or use it as a camp fire. It’s called the Ecogrill from www.notonthehighstreet.com available here at a bargain of £10.
So that’s it my wish list so far this week, what have you been dreaming of as the sun has come out?
