Someone (can't remember which blog friend) had noticed the pillow the tray was propped up against last week. I bought it for $3.00 at the Mission Thrift Store a few weeks ago, it is perfect for adding some "cream color" to that chair.
The blue wing back chair was purchased for another formal living room in another color scheme in the late 1990s... it is awaiting placement on the priority list to have it recovered. I think it will be waiting a long time. :)
However, the $3.00 pillow helps it blend in a little more to the deep greens and browns of this living room. It also makes me smile and my husband doesn't hate it.
I was able to pot everything for the deck on Saturday. Hubby built the two wood beds for the garden on our driveway yesterday afternoon. He will build a third later and have it ready for next spring.
We ended up using southern yellow pine on a recommendation from his best friend in Holland (Michigan). It is much less expensive than what we were originally looking at and he says it will hold up for years and years.
Today I must plant the Sweet Annie in the ground near the house, one of the few places it will receive lots of sunshine. I love Sweet Annie, the fragrance reminds me of the many times we traveled to The Feast of the Hunter's Moon and the shuttle bus ride back to the parking area was filled with the aroma of the Sweet Annie I would purchase... along with Bittersweet and a few other dried flowers.
I hope to get the book and film list completed today, working on it between outdoor chores. It's fun putting it together (slow going but very interesting) and I plan to keep a link to it permanently on the sidebar as well as asking for more ideas later.
Now, I must put my computer on sleep mode... lots to do and miles to go before I sleep. :)
