This is what I dream of but...
this is how my back yard looks this morning.
Even if you think it looks pretty or peaceful or anything positive DO NOT go there with me.
Look at my forlorn looking patio furniture. It is taunting me by peeking through the snow like that.
We have had a record breaking ten weeks of snow cover here. Unheard of! I know, I can hear you all saying that at least the sun is shining. Whatever. I want to wear cute shoes again instead of boots ( even though I did find some fun ones) and I don't want to think that I can only wear about half of my pants because I can't wear heals in this crap and I really don't want to have to sit down before I open my gas bill. Enough already.
This past weekend, sick of our four walls, we trudged through this dirty sloppy muck to the local home show. It was filled with the usual heating and cooling systems, gutter helmets, and whole house vacuums. BORRRRRRRRRRRRRING. But when I rounded the corner and saw these beauties, I was Uplifted, Inspired, Hopeful.
Just looking at this picture of them makes me happy. We ordered two of them in bright red plus a fun side table in yellow for our small balcony where the guys like to sit and have a cigar or Mike and I like to share a bottle of wine. I didn't know that they came in green too. I am also smitten by that one. They are made by Poly Furniture and are part of their Tropical Collection. I like that they are guaranteed not to fade.
I will have to find some Pillows for them :0 Hopefully they don't deliver them too soon because they will look a little silly sitting out there in the snow but there are better days ahead. Yes I am hopeful that I will someday look out and my backyard will look like this again.
Now that's what I'm talking about. A color evangelist like me can only deal with so much white.
