Big Bloggy Hugs....and a Deal Alert

First of all, let me say thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who left me thoughts of love, support, and comfort on the post about my precious Noah. Your lovely comments had me in tears.....the good kind. You'll never know how much it meant to me. It was such a wonderful experience to be able to share that piece of my heart with you and I am so grateful!



Now, on to not so serious matters! I absolutely must share my killer deal of the week with you, in the hopes that you too can have gorgeous patio furniture at a small fraction of the original cost. Tuesday night my husband and I went out to dinner and to Target. While looking through the remains of the outdoor furniture clearance, the manger came up to us and said if we saw anything we liked to let him know. He wanted to make us a deal and get rid of it. Ummmmmmm, hello? What store are we at? We proceeded to pick out the most gorgeous patio furniture on the planet. Stuff that I would NEVER even look at otherwise. Even with the discount, I didn't think we'd be able to afford it. But just for fun, we asked him what kind of a deal he could give us. He gave us $200 off the clearanced price....$1500 worth of furniture for $580. I just about died and went to heaven.Smith and Hawken's Windsor Collection

Comfortable deep seating that is plush and oh so very chic!





The table has the look of stone, but is very light weight......gorgeous!





And to top it all off, the chairs have this caning detail that mimics my absolute favorite pattern right now......quatrefoil.

We have spent the last two days hard at work in our yard getting our new patio set put together. And trying to make our poor neglected yard, not so ghetto! It is definitely a work in progress, but we are making some headway. I think I could possibly invite people over and not be completely humiliated to have them come in the backyard.....maybe! We still have more work to do outside, so I have to run. It sure was nice to come inside and take a break from the excruciating heat and humidity.....thank you little blog, thank you!

What a deal!!! Fabulous! I was quite proud that I found the set I've spent 2 years trying to find second hand at a garage sale this summer - for a whopping $100. :) It totally needs a coat of teal paint and then it will be to.die.for.
