Is it June yet?

Well Well Well...here I am again. May has been a month for the record books... and not in a good way. Without getting into any personal details, this month has easily beat out any other month in the history of my memory as far as family/friend epic catastrophes that test me and the people around me (who I love! Hang in there everyone.) Here are some roses that should bring the smiles.

Further investigating into this matter (aka bitching and moaning) has brought me to the conclusion that May 2009 was NOT a good month. So. That makes me feel better somehow. We are not alone. So if you would like to commiserate please leave a comment. If you are having a wonderful month, please don't. JUST KIDDING. Love you all, and I hope this is a good month, year, life, for everyone!

In other news, our garden is cranking out some delicious salads. We have been eating the spinach, arugula, lettuce, and endive regularly. I look forward to the carrots, onions, radishes, beans, and more!

Hope everyone is having a good week! (Seriously :) )

If I told you, you wouldn't believe me...

So...we'll just skip all the nonsense and I say I was ABSURDLY BUSY for the last week. But I miss my blog friends! I haven't left you all - I am coming back! I'm here! And its VINTAGE THINGIE THURSDAY! My favorite day of the week! Make sure to swing on by Coloradolady's (Suzanne's) blog and see everyone's wonderful "Vintage Thingies!"

So for my grand return here is just a small bit of what I've been up to. I found this great little bistro set with matching laminate table. I knew it had some potential... but it was quite dirty and a little rusty in spots.

A fresh coat of paint and WOW! So Cute! It also must be said that I spent A LOT of time cleaning those cute little yellow seat cushions. Lets put it this way...they were brown/green when I got my hands on them. What a difference!

The perfect place to sit and waste away the summer days with a nice pitcher of lemonade... or lemonade and vodka if you were me :)
