I've been meaning to get my butt in gear and put together an outdoor table for sometime. But something always seems to get in the way. So with Lily's help, and I use that term loosely, today was the day.
But first I needed to whip up some pillows. This material had been sitting by my sewing machine for a month. Thanks to Marty's inspiration, (check out all the beautiful pillows she makes) @ A Stroll thru Life, I got myself busy.
And hubby was finally able to get my little fountain going. Every Autumn, it fills up with Asian Beetles and we have to de-clog in the Spring.
OOPS! Sorry about the spill over.
And then there was this material. I bought it last year on the clearance rack. It was $7 for 2.5 yards and I was sure I could find a use for it.
So I trimmed it and sewed the edges and now I have a frenchy, cottage tablecloth.
I like the mix of patterns and colors and I think it cost me about $3.00 since I have quite a bit fabric left over.
I had so hoped for a sunny morning since our porch faces the East. But alas, it was mostly overcast.
Little red heart bowls, $1 a piece from Michaels. Paper napkins, ( but I think they work) are from TJ Maxx.
The blue and white salad plates are Myott Finlandia, garage sale find.
Tea-cup and saucers are also Myott Finlandia, purchased from E-Bay and Garage sales.
Blue Willow Dinner Plates, on sale at TJ Maxx for $2 a piece.
Wine glasses, free from my Mom.

Smaller blue vase, $1, same auction. Flowers are from my garden.
