Cedar Outdoor Furniture

Spring is the perfect time to update your outdoor furniture. When choosing outdoor furniture, it's important to purchase quality furniture that is designed to withstand harsh weather and other outdoor elements. Western Red Cedar and Northern White Cedar are good choices for hardy, outdoor furniture because this type of wood is naturally resistant to insect damage and decay. It can be stained or left untreated to naturally weather to an attractive silver gray.

Here are some of the latest outdoor cedar products available at HomeTreasureCove. All of them can be conveniently ordered online and will be shipped right to your home. If you would like a shipping quote for any of these items, just send an email to with your shipping address.

Spring Decorating

Spring is on the way and it is my favorite time of year. Everything seems to wake up and come alive with color. It's a good time to do some spring cleaning inside and outside your home. Spring decor should be fun and bright, bringing to mind the fresh scents and colors of flowers and fruit trees in bloom, wide blue sunny skies and the natural beauty of mother nature as new life gets welcomed into the world.

You can begin by creating your own little oasis in your back yard, garden or patio. These Asian inspired ceramic planters in three different sizes add a colorful exotic touch and can be used indoors or outdoors. There are four different designs to choose from.

Another idea for adding sparkle outside your home are these attractive Painted Glass Sun Catchers. They are hand painted with beautiful detailed designs such as the Chinese character for love with cherry blossoms, Chinese dragons and a 3 panel Feng Shui style.

Garden flags are a great way to add color and style to your yard. For spring, the Whiff of Fragrance Garden Flag and the Tranquility Garden Flag are both great choices.

Fresh cut spring flowers are a favorite choice for many decorators who want to add an attractive, natural element indoors. These
Large Red & White Vases are just the thing to display a beautiful arrangement of fresh flowers. Choose the design you like best or get all four to display fresh flowers throughout your home.
