last weekend


... last weekend, i bought these carnations ... maybe it was last weekend, it might be a bit longer .....

but, i'm amazed at how $4 can last and look beautiful! i know i've had them for a week to 10 days, and they still look good.

awesome day on the porch

last weekend was super warm. so warm, that i had to spend the afternoon on the porch. but, my ghetto porch furniture needed a "face lift". i had a home depot gift card, and used it to buy the two chair cushions (mid-back).

the cushions i bought, and the pillows ... not SO much. i do have the pillows, but i DID make some progress.

i bought some outdoor canvas fabric from the local (chain) fabric store. i wasn't sure how much i needed. so i "guess-sti-mated". i bought 1 1/4 yards of 54" width. from that , i got enough fabric to make 2 zippered covers for two 18" pillows. AND, i do have enough for at least 1 smaller pillow.
