My husband and I recently took the kids out shopping to restock the sand in their outdoor sand table. While we knew we were going to pick up at least one bag of your typical white play sand, what we didn't know is that we would stumble upon PINK & BLUE sand! Oh, I was so excited! More so than the kids I think! After giving Noah the option of color he chose the pink! I squealed grabbed the sand and off we went.
As we turned our attention to the potted flowers and adorable lawn ornaments, my head was already busy plotting and planning. I couldn't stop thinking about how fantastic the pink sand is. Up and down the flower aisles we went pointing and oohing at everything. Ha, you'd think we had never seen flowers before. As I was drooling over the pretty Pansies, it hit me. I want a flower garden with pink sand as a top soil, inspired by Alice in Wonderland with a tea party feel to it!
When we got home we filled the sand table with the pink sand and let the kids go at it. Of course, my husband and I had to get our hands in it too! It's so much fun!
I'm also searching for fun solar lighting ideas since this old house doesn't have any outdoor outlets. I found these fun Mason Jars by TreasureAgain on Etsy and would love to have a few of these hanging around outside.

So, while I'm here cheme about my perfect outdoor sanctuary I hope you are all having a wonderful spring! Stay tuned for more!
