Look who wandered into the lanai today. And please, no comments about rabid turtles - LOL. (Every time I post about wildlife, I get a rabies lecture. You'd think rabies was a pandemic. There has been ONE death from rabies in the history of this country from a rabid raccoon BTW).
The raffia turtle is huge and has a galvanized metal interior so he can be filled with ice and beverages for entertaining. My HG find yesterday. So cute. And to the person who keeps commenting complaining every single time I post about HomeGoods, please please please go away. Because HomeGoods is not going away. It's one of the few normal things I do away from my house nowadays. I am wondering how long it will take for HomeGoods to tap into the whole wicker/rattan craze in interior design. I can't wait.
BTW, the bar cart, wicker pineapples, calligraphy brushes, and tortoiseshell decanters are all from HG. I feel that the lanai has sort of a British Colonial island vibe that I like a lot. I love the idea of an orchid collection in the lanai too. Speaking of orchids, I have been reading up on growing orchids on trees and have received several questions on the subject and I have also had questions about my alligator topiary, so both will be the subject of tomorrow's post - God willing and the creek don't rise.
