Thanks Chari for hosting this event. It's a nice easy one for Sundays : ))
Please go see what all the participant have re-posted of their favorites this week at "Happy To Design". http://happytodesign.blogspot.com/
I decided to re-post this one as a sort of farewell to summer. Although this was in the Spring, this photo really has the feeling of summer for me. I had just gotten the table and chairs out of the garage. Heaven knows I used them a lot in tablescaping this summer since I STILL don't have a dinning room set!!

Everything smells so fresh and is that wonderful
spring green. I don't use the picnic table much except to sit down a few minutes at. Since my husband died, I don't get much company for meals. Actually my dog Rocky thinks it's a great vantage point as he stands on top of the table. The ice cream set we got a long time ago when we had an antique shop. I don't remember if I got it at an auction or an estate sale but it's a winner! I gave it to my parents as a gift one Christmas for their screened in porch. I was just thinking back about having suppers out there at their house years ago on this table and chairs. When they passed away, I got the set back. I do use it quite a bit even if it's just me having a cup of coffee in the summer. My husband's best friend, Steve, built the low deck for us. I've got to buy some new cushions this year for a couple other outside chairs I have. They've really gone up in price this year. They are about $30. each even at Walmart!
