My Patio & Backyard: Needs some Pier 1 Love

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Pier 1 for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


We are still experiencing chilly temperatures here in southeast Wisconsin. Last weekend we had a short break in the weather and I was able to get outside and work a little in the yard. I burned some leaves, picked up sticks and surveyed the pitiful furniture situation that lay before me.


I have a fabulous stone fire pit... surrounded by garage sale chairs with no cushions. I have a patio area where the concrete is buckling up. My yard is spacious with lots of trees and boatloads of potential.

I was thinking of getting a hammock, but then I spotted this amazing "Swingasan Chair" at Pier 1! Isn't it marvelous?? Now I'm craving this chair in all its glory and can picture myself sitting outside enjoying the breeze and listening to the birds chirp. I'm even thinking that we could hook this up in our bedroom in the cold months!

So I looked around some more and found this beautiful furniture arrangement. The rug is outstanding and the perfect frosting on this set. I love this set, it's made just like my sectional in my living room. There are corner pieces and inner pieces, you choose how many you want.

I think my backyard needs some serious TLC and I have just added these items to my wish list. I was pretty smitten with a lot of the different seating options too, my fire pit area needs it bad! The different cushion options are so pretty, I couldn't stop browsing around and coming up with ideas. Speaking of ideas, I found out that there are Pier 1 Tweetups that you can attend to get even more ideas. Fun!

Now if it would just get warm here in Wisconsin I'd be ready to enjoy the outdoors!
