Sunny Citrus Inspiration

I never thought for a moment that this wrought iron
bakers/garden rack that I recently got would ever stay painted orange...
but as I started
to play with it and fill it with pretties that I had around the house
the more I was liking it in these fun citrus colors!
So... what do you think???
Wouldn't it look adorable on this cheery porch?!
Where's my paint brush?!
This darling duck had been in my storage closet,
I couldn't seem to find just the right place to put it. 
Now it looks right at home...

My first intentions were to paint the rack black or in oil rubbed bronze
or maybe white, and put it indoors.
and still might change it eventually, I'm still not sure...
Decisions, decisions...

But the more citrus inspiration I found,  like this sunny bedding ensemble,
the more difficult the decision becomes.

How creative and fun is this citrus cake?!

Although comtemporary style is not really for me, 
I thought this living area decorated in citrus colors looked really fun and tropical...
and with the addition of the palm tree, it reminded me of a vacation right at home!

All you would need is a ...
 refreshing tropical citrus drink!

Last but not least check out this fresh and adorable kitchen decorated
with citrus wall-covering...

Thanks for stopping by... I always look forward to every visit!!

Btw, I would also just like to thank everyone for their especially
nice comments on my last lilacs post, and to Marty for featuring it on her blog!

This week I'll be joining these bloggy party's:

I love your bakers rack and the orange is fabulous. Your yellow and green is just perfect with it. You have such fabulous things to display, the watering cans, the duck and the fruit display. How perfect is this. Love it. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

These colors would put a smile on anyone's face! I have a pink chicken from Tuesday Morning that is sort of like your precious duck ... but I'm loving your colors here! Found you at Coastal Charm.
