thrift and gift

Last night we moved the little table out to the back sitting area of our yard.  
The table was purchased several years ago at auction.
My husband recently replaced the top with some old barn siding.
The four chairs were garage sale purchases.  
See the "deer" in the background? 
It is rebar, cut, bent and welded. 
This morning, we're enjoying a refreshing shower.
It washes a metal chair (yard sale)
and the huge, black bell (a gift from my brother and sister-in-law).
The blue bowling ball was purchased
at my favorite thrift store...


  1. I see a glass of iced tea on that table, a book on the chair arm. I hope it stops raining soon so you can complete the picture!

  2. I'm picturing myself sitting right there right now!! Beside the deer!

  3. Mmm yard sale season. My daughter just walked out the door to go with her grandpa and grandma. I can't go today, but I'm going to a used curriculum sale tomorrow and as tradition dictates we will sale our way over!

    A couple of adirondack chairs like yours would definitely make my day.

    Blessings, Debbie

  4. Great "finds" and gifts. . .love adirondack and the old-fashioned metal chairs. You've made a lovely relaxing space!

  6. The chairs were a nice find, Rebecca. Oh, boy, tomorrow is yard sale morning! Hurray! Susan

    And the furniture was a fantastic find, dear.

  8. I've painted a bowling ball before and sat in in my flower bed as a substitute for those BREAKABLE gazing balls.


Hope to return your visit soon! Thanks for leaving a message...
