We've been shifting into summer mode around here. That means a few weeks of endless sleepovers and pool parties, during the in-between time of school and summer jobs for my college kids. Some mornings there are so many cars in my driveway, I feel like I'm hunting my car in a parking lot when I leave for work :) Pam said at least now I know I can run a bed and breakfast. I'm just glad so many kids like to hang out around here.
I did take a few days off work last week to just slow down the pace a bit. Every morning you could find me on the front porch with my coffee and a good book.
I've really been enjoying my metal non glider. I've always referred to these things a gliders, because my grandparents had one. Only theirs had wrap over arms and glided. Mine doesn't glide. It just doesn't feel right calling it a bench.
I can't believe how lucky I was to find this at the Nashville Flea Market last year for $50. This may be my greatest flea market score yet.
My black metal milk can makes the perfect side table.
I thought my non-glider was perfect just the way it was: chippy, a bit rusty and a beautiful shade of aqua showing through.
I've also finally gotten around to checking out PicMonkey. What can I say. I'm always late to the party. I do like it much better than Picnik. It's is faster and easier to upload pictures and there is a larger selection of effects. I'm loving the weave effect, can you tell?
I do have other projects to share when I get a chance to take pictures and tweak them a bit. I've painted my china cabinet and finally found some slipcovers that I like for my sofa and love seat. In the mean time I'm really enjoying checking out everyone else's projects on your blogs. Thanks for stopping by!
