Ok..so if you are not bored to death of the subject of my "patio set" ...here is the finished product.
While out doing the garage sales this morning..a call came from Matty, my wonderful and patient seamstress, that my cushions were all finished and ready to be picked up. She said she had a surprise for me.
Can you see the little honey bee there on the leaf? The pattern is slightly raised, embroidered, I guess, from the back. Anyway..when I got there she told me she had been able to get ALL the covers out of my yardage and that the other material was not needed! I was so happy!
This large deserted nest was in my daughters courtyard. She was so upset that the mother bird never returned to her nest. Sometimes birds do build their nests in odd places. The nest sat all that year and they finally removed it to find that the little eggs were still in it after all that time.
It makes me a bit sad to look at it..but I cannot seem to throw it away and neither could she so she let me have it. The nest is heavy and well built. I've had it for a couple of years now..and I decided to put it out on the table for Spring.
DO you know what my sweet son in law told me today when they were here? (Of course you don't..)Well..he told me that I could go to Lowe's or Home Depot and I can change the tiles in my TABLE!
He said that are all different colors...I mean, for heavens sakes, I could put frosted tiles?? Or terra cotta? No, not white..but..
Who knows what joys are there to be discovered!! And ..he said that most were just a dollar each!! Can you just believe that?
I mean ..I am ..happy with what I have. I am! I like that it sort of matches my new flagstone patio but I just want to go look. Wouldn't you?
Anyway..so tomorrow I thought we would just drop in and take a quick peek. Not to buy anything..but just to look. You know...
So..do you like the finished product?
I'm so happy I could dance a ..a...Polka! Or something.
Have a wonderful Sunday. I'm gonna sit at my table and drink lemonade with sweet and patient husband.
