|On a mission.|
|Happy Pat's Day, Pat.|
As for the porch furniture: last year we took a neighbors discarded rattan love seat in the hopes of buying it a new cushion and using it on the porch this year. So, I broke it out and headed out to a couple of stores to find a cushion for it. After going to at least five stores, I finally found what I was looking for at Pier 1. I bought a cushion and a cute little "daisy" table to go along side the love seat - I just couldn't resist it, it was so cute.
Well, when I brought the cushion home and put it on the couch, and put the little table beside it, it was obvious that the old couch just wouldn't do. Of course it wouldn't...isn't that just the way?! So, out I went to Pier 1 again today to buy a new love seat and new cushions for our "old" set of porch furniture. I figured with new cushions we could get another year or two of use out of the set (which is probably 10-12 years old by now - we bought it used), and I was right. It all looks so cute and welcoming. Once we know the nice weather is really here we'll bring out the plants and it will become our outside living room for the summer. I cannot stress enough how much I love my porch!
These days have truly been a gift. To have them so early in the season will make it seem like a very short winter indeed! But, that nagging voice in the back of my mind keeps whispering "out like a lion."Quiet!
