Are you making any changes to your outdoor living space for Spring?  I’m refreshing our patio for Spring using  simple changes with pillows and cushions.

With all that being said, When my daughter asked me to make her and the grands a few floor … Continue reading The Pouf. Floor Cushions for outdoor living
