Outside Living

Every year I'm on a little HUNT.
Looking here and there for fabric
(preferably free)
to cover the patio furniture.

We do a lot of living out here...
and the fabric just DOESN'T survive the summer.
:/


This year.....my waiting was NOT in VAIN!

This flowery fabric used to be a bedspread!
It was given to me
and
I love IT!!!



I also had acquired some heavy TAN upholstery fabric
 for the back of the cushions.
Yeah!!!  ;)

I love sitting out here with a cup of coffee in the morning...
OR
 talking with family in the evening.....


Hey!
Living outside is great!
You even get to DRAW on the floor!!!

  1. That is a lovely fabric indeed! The flowers have kind of a rosemaling-ish quality.

  6. Oh how nice Beth!! Me and my chair cushions is a constant battle! Either there's wind blowing or the sand is coming or a big ole thunderstorm at 1 am has you scrambling to retrieve them in your gown tail!!!

    I guess I can sit here and imagine I am YOU sitting in your lovely space!! LOVE the cushions!
