I also grabbed a quilt from the linen closet.... the boys gf's are skinny little things and are always cold, so it's nice to have a quilt out there for cuddling !
I'm having some series spray paint envy - you blog girls know who I'm talking about ! You all get out those cans and voila: gorgeous color ! I on the other hand, used three cans of pink spray paint ( the kind they advertise for plastic ) on the hideous hand me down rocking chairs and finally gave up ! So, one is pink - not even a pretty pink mind you - and the other is still dingy white. I think I'm just going to buy regular paint and splash some real color on there !
Around the corner of the porch there's a french door to the dining room and the steps down to the side garden. Right now I have these red wicker chairs from First Born's college condo out there. I think they're heading up to the twins balcony though, since they need seating up there and no one
I came across some red gingham in my stash to remake the pillows, the green ones are old and seriously yucky ! The kids made those birdhouses many years ago for father's day. I had planned to hang them but I want to keep them out of the weather so they don't get any worse off !
The lavender has lots of buds on it - can't wait until they bloom ! This is the side yard area below the porch. I got the slate for the $25 I paid the street crew to haul it up to the yard when they re-did the sidewalks in front of Lavender Hill. These were the original town sidewalks we're told !
Off to finish the pillows for the back yard furniture ...................................................................
