Outdoor Serving Station

Hello Peeps, first off I am so excited to show you all my new blog design. Yes, Little Brags needed a Face-Lift and Rebekah Louise Designs came to the rescue. If you have a blog and need some help, I highly recommend her (very reasonable too)!!!! 

So today I played on our back patio. Remember my Potting Bench  I got lost summer? Well this year I decided to turn it into a Beverage Serving Station. I've been seeing so many awesome ideas in Blogland lately. So here is my version...
I spray painted an old frame white 
and added a fake boxwood wreath for the wall
I found the adorable Bunny Art at a Spring 
Bazaar, and you all know how much 
we love Bunnies around here ... lol
If you are new to my blog, don't forget 
to check out our pet bunny Bugsy . 
Serious Eye Candy Ladies...




Some close-ups
napkins, straws and outdoor wine glasses 
are from World Market


uhhh and I also got these 3 paper lanterns 
at World Market today 

they add some more fun to the patio! 
To see how I decorated the potting 
table last year, click below

As always, thanks to each one of you for 
stopping by!

  26. Oh heavens, I loved everything I saw in your photos. Love your potting bench/serving station, perfect and multi-usable. Need to get hubs to make one for our back deck like that. We use lots of pallet wood. Your porch is awesome with so much goodness on it. Hope you/yours enjoy that porch alot. Great place for summer relaxing.
    When I saw all the great stuff in your photos had to subscribe. Love it all. But your bunny is star of the post.
    And Bugsy what kind of rabbit is he? Does he like to be held and loved on? do you let him in your house? He is so adorable, my first thought was hugging him to my chest. Wonder how our dog and cat would feel about a bunny in the house? They put up with each other pretty well when we brought our dog home, we'd had the cat for few years. Cat was used to our other dog, a miniature black cocker spaniel. Cat is pretty mild with other animals. We've moved him around in our moves and he seems to take it all in stride. We even lived at an rv park for 10 months, he stayed around our spot or went across lane to visit neighbors cats. When we moved to a house he stayed in fenced yards. Now we have a 1/2 acre out in country where he seems to stay right around our place, thank heavens, or I'd worry about him getting run over or hurt. He showed up at our house in KY one day and didn't seem inclined to leave, he was a barn cat from farm land next to us. He's an orange striped cat which are my favorite kitties.
    Great post and blog. Found you again thru Hit me with your best shot party. Happy days

    1. Hi there and thanks so much for your sweet sweet comment. I tried to reply to your comment directly but you come up as a non reply blogger, so I am not sure if you will get my reply. Our Bunny is an American Fuzzy Lop, he is litter box trained and comes in the house a lot in the evenings. He loves to be petted, but not held for a long time. We had a 180 pound Newfoundland dog up until earlier this year (he died of old age). Our dog and rabbit did wonderful. I have lots of pictures on my blog of them. If you scroll though some of my older posts you can see. Thanks so much again for the comment luv! Christine from Little Brags
