This post is bitter sweet.
You see…my 81 year old parents Bob & Joanne recently had to move back to NY, where we all are originally from. It’s kind of a long story, but basically what it came down to is that we couldn’t find them senior living apartments close to our house here in Michigan. There were long waiting lists and we didn’t have time for that. Meanwhile, my sister found the perfect senior apartments right around the corner from her house in Buffalo.
It was extremely difficult to say good bye because they have been by our side here in Michigan and Florida for almost 20 years. They are only 5 hours away now, but with our busy schedules it makes it difficult to just hop in the car and go. On a happy note, I am going to visit them this Summer, and again over the holidays.
So, why am I explaining all of this? The outdoor furniture was theirs. I bought it as a gift for them for their deck here. I inherited it when we realized they didn’t have a patio or balcony where they were going. So, although I love having this cute set on our deck, I would much rather have my parents sitting in it on theirs.
Summer Deck Style
The set I purchased for them was fairly inexpensive, and came with green cushions. The green clashed with some of our other outdoor furniture, so I am selling those in an upcoming garage sale on June 3 & 4. Want to come?
When it began to warm up, my girls and I ventured out to find cushions and pillows that would fit into our color schemes better.

The blue (almost periwinkle) cushions, octopus pillow, and striped lumbar pillows I found at Garden Ridge, which is actually now called “at Home”. The rug I found on line, but can’t remember where because it was a while ago.
I pulled together this “Get the look on line” list for you if you are interested…

While shooting, I had a little visitor. Time to get some wasp spray.
I can’t wat to sit out here later today!
