~AHHH...THAT'S BETTER...~


It always amazes me what a couple of little things can do to make something look...cozier.
These chair pads, I finally found them at Kmart.  I usually go to Target when I am looking for some little thing like this..but I went with a friend and the red toile caught my eye..and home they came.  They just happened to be the only two left..so somewhere in my town, someone else is sporting them on their patio too! 

They were soft, not the kind that flatten out and get hard and only $11.00 each...such a deal! :)
Yeah...I know...no flagstone yet.  You see, dear Son in law works on our home when he isn't working on someone else's.  He is a contractor with his own business and with the economy like it has been..we have been grateful ...yes..I said grateful, that he hasn't had time to do our flagstone.

We all sort of teased him at the graduation party on Saturday...

I had to laugh because when he walked out onto the patio he said, "Wow, the extra space is great, but you know what?  It would REALLY be great with flagstones!"   The BRAT!  LOL

Hugs, and stay happy!!
Mona

P.S.  Our precious Sandy is now in the fight of her life...our minds never stray far from her...
Bless all of you who continue to pray!  I love you for it!!  You cannot even begin to know how much it means to all of us.

Beautiful, and I agree, flagstones would be the perfect finishing touch.

Healing prayers continue here for Sandy.

Your table and chairs with the new pads looks great. The flagstone will come I'm sure.
Praying for Sandy - keep the faith! Connie

I am very sorry to hear Sandy has had a serious setback, Mona. My loving thoughts are with you and your family. Your chairs look lovely ;)

How cute and pretty! I love the chair pads. We don't have a kmart in our town, but I think I need to scope one out for some bargains! Everything looked beautiful, even without the flagstone! I will keep your daughter in my prayers Mona..so sorry she's had such a tough time.

No, no! No setback at all. She is going strong..doing all the right things. All of it just is not easy...it's hard. Very hard. She is ..not fine...but she is doing well. We are proud of her strength. Thank you so much for caring..

Keeping Sandy in my prayers... I've already emailed my daughter to see if the Kmart by her has them.... I'm obsessing over these beautiful cushions... they would be perfect at our back door... and for Mr. P to enjoy sitting out there... hugs ~lynne~

Love the cushions with your chairs and table!! I'm a big fan of fabric being able to give just the right "pop" to make a setting shine! Looks great.

All the best for your daughter...such a miserable vicious foe and sometimes the treatments seem worse than the illness. Just hold on to knowing that victory IS possible.... people are beating cancer more and more every day. We all hope that your daughter is one of the winners!

Very charming and lovely too!
Big Hugs,
Cindy

Love those cushions. I really like the little bistro set as well. Flagstone will happen some day.
Prayers for Sandy. She is blessed to have a mother that cares so much. I am sure you feel every pain she has. Prayers and HUGS for you.

What a terrific find Mona. They just look like they were made for your bistro set. You were meant to have those two weren't you.
Continuing in prayers for Sandy.

I like your chair pads very much. Our patio in Tennessee is in the Italian style and this year we have blue cushions. When I was last over, Larry and I painted the chairs and the tables a matt black. I wouldn't let him spray, but insisted we use a paintbrush. What were my motives you are asking??

Elizabeth and Gary said...

Hi Mona,
I love your little table and chairs, the cushions are perfect...love the toile!!.
I will continue to keep Sandy in my prayers..God is watching over her..
Have a sweet day and hugs, Elizabeth
