Nice.  What's it made from?  Did someone make it for you? (the sailboat/lighthouse one)

Your pictures are lovely.  But lovely requires maintenance.  Years ago we added an arbor and a few sections of wooden picket fence at the base of our driveway.  We selected a vinyl arbor because we knew it would be covered by vines anyway.

But we wanted wooden picket fence sections, as many vinyl fences have a shine we do not like.  DH has spray painted those sections of fence, as well as a white bench in our front yard.  Next he will be spray paining the rail fence at either side of our driveway.  

 

Your garden den decor is so unusual - that bench is really something.  Because of where we live, we haven’t started any annual plantings yet.  The weather has been kind of erratic.
