A couple of weeks ago, Hubby was out-of-town for the weekend on a fishing excursion, so the children & I had the house to ourselves. I’m comfortable entertaining myself, it doesn’t take much more than something to read, a glass of wine, and a place to curl up with the dogs. This area on my porch fits the bill~ perfect this time of year, after I blow off the pollen, since the humidity hasn’t sky-rocketed yet.
Just some quick and easy meals when he’s away, or fruit & cheese and light snacking.
This tray serves multiple purposes~ it’s great for just displaying objects or stacking books on a table or ottoman. I’ve had it several years, it’s fabric laminated and I love the green garden toile pattern, with all the gardening images of topiaries, sundials, rakes and trellises. No manufacturer’s name is on it~ I remember it being from a small company that also made laminated placemats. If you were crafty, you could make one yourself.
Pillows for propping and candles for after dusk. . .
A teacup for later, or morning . . . I’m having wine right now :-)
Chloe is supervising at the moment, although truth be told, she’s waiting for me to sit down, so she can have a lap or leg to rest next to. All this activity she says is very tiresome~ I keep telling her she doesn’t have to follow me, but she’s not convinced.
Plates from Pier 1 (many years ago), a green glass from World Market and stainless from Target. . .
This came to my inbox this week. . . nothing here came from Horchow, but take advantage~ or at least drool at little at all the dish-eye-candy Horchow has to offer.
