This weekend went by too fast, don't you agree?!
I guess it's because we did so many nice, weekend-y things!
First there was a little beach walking (see above) and some communing with nature, care of this fellow:
What a handsome specimen, and so gentle and almost timid.
Pelicans are amazing creatures.
Someday I'll show you the video we took of an entire flock of them,
eating out of the bait shop owner's hand.
Before we walked the beach, we went searching for the perfect vessel for a fountain.
It will be the centerpiece of the meadow we're creating on the side of our property.
I like this one:
And the one down below.
Both are about 4' tall, and will sit in the center of a circular area in the middle of the meadow.
We're still working on the basics of the meadow, and will decide on a fountain later.
Even though I was ready to get going on that part of the project first, before anything else is done.
I wanted to load that first urn right into the back of the car, and head home with it.
Some other people around here (you know who you are!) have different ideas.
Some other people believe you should do things step by step, and follow a plan...
So, no urn for a fountain yet, darn it!!
Other important projects got completed, though!
Step by step, I sewed replacement cushions for the deck dining chairs.
You can see how badly replacements were needed.
Here's what the new ones look like.
They're colorful and very comfy, an ideal combination in my opinion.
This is one of my favorite spots to sit in the late afternoon when I read the daily mail.
Also this is a great place to have breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
Which we do whenever the weather permits.
This weekend, I did some of this too.
I was sanding so fast the paparazzi didn't get a clear shot of me!
I was working on this shelf, which you've seen before.
It got primer and a coat of white paint.
It still needs one more coat before it's done, though.
Then we'll move it into the house, and I can get the books off the floor,
out of the baskets,
and out from under tables.
Oh, and before I let another day go by, let me tell you about my PRIZES!!
I won a $50 gift card to Home Goods from our favorite tablescaper, Susan,
AND, lucky me, this lovely apron came in the mail from my sweet new friend Yoli, at Apron Senorita.
I was the lucky winner in her giveaway.
If you can read backwards you can see it's a PEACE and LOVE apron.
I love wearing it, it makes me feel tres chic!
There you have it, the weekend in review!
