The third comment on my about the columns would be Mother. Mother just let me know where you would like your gift certificate from. Thanks everyone for commenting and thanks Bo for drawing the winning number.
By the way the column is going to stay brown. Mostly because Bo doesn't want to paint it again. We'll see how long that last.

All of this came out of our garden tonight and there is plenty more where they came from.

If I had three wishes and I couldn't have 3 more wishes they would be:
1. A cure for ALS
2. A free lifetime pass to Disney World
3. A paid for beach house at Panama City Beach.
If I couldn't get these three wishes I would be satisfied with just the first one.
So what would your three wishes be?

Doesn't a motorcycle helmet and a boxing glove go together?

This is how my cedar chest started out. This was Maw's cedar chest and I think it used to live in her basement, then it lived in storage for a while, and then my old apartment. Needless to say it has been around for a while, but the top has seen its better days. Bo and I use it hold blankets. This is going to sound odd but one night I had a dream on how I was going to make this chest look better by covering a board with foam, batting and fabric. The next morning I told Bo about my dream and he was okay with the idea. Bo was even kind of enough to help me. It actually took him longer to put together his new work bench than it took us making the new cushion. Now go back up to the big reveal.

I had numerous projects planned for this weekend. Sad to say none had anything to do with sewing. The first project I tackled was our patio furniture. This was my Maw's patio furniture. It sat on her breezeway and then her screened in porch for many years. It had been well loved. When Maw moved it end up on my brother's back porch for 3 years without anyone even sitting in it. I got it when my brother decided to get rid of this set. Needless to say they had rust on them and not the best shape. Bo and I took them apart , sanded them down and repainted them.
This is how they look today. I LOVE the color, and these two rockers are super comfortable.
My mom bought me an umbrella, but I won't be able to use it in the table because there is no umbrella hole in the table. I'm going to try an umbrella stand beside the table and see if that works.
