Perspective is Everything...


See this wonderfully chippy green chair?


My husband and I found it this past weekend, and I instantly fell in love!

I thought to myself, this will look so lovely out on the deck...it's just the perfect shade of green, with just the right amount of chippiness.

I thought..."wouldn't it be soooooo comfortable to just lounge outside during the lazy Summer days, with a tall lemonade...



 and a copy of Flea Market Style Magazine to peruse..."


So we bought it!
The chair, that is.

And yep, it would be so wonderful to just laze about in this divine chippy chair, were it not for the fact that it's only


Eight


Inches


Tall

Gotcha!

My wee little green chair fits in perfectly with the HOLIDAY at hand, and is a perfect lead-in to my next bit of news.

My husband and I met exactly 4 years ago on St. Patrick's Day, so tomorrow serves as an anniversary of sorts for us! We had a marathon first date that day which lasted 13 hours and covered the entire city of San Antonio, so it'll be hard to top that, at least activity wise! We'll likely just sleep in and finish getting me ready for Warrenton next week. 


Thanks honey, for a wonderful four years!

Have a wonderful Wednesday and go drink yourself some GREEN beer!

Oh Sweetie, You are so stinkin cute. You had me going there with the chair. I was thinking you lucky ducky. What a wonderful way to relax in a comfortable old chair like that. Looks like your dolly will be relaxing instead.

Congratulations and Happy Anniversary to you and DH. My DH and I celebrated our 35th in January. We still love to think back to when we met, the things we did, the things we said. Love is so wonderful, and sweetie, it gets better with age. Believe Me...

Have a beautiful Anniversary. I will be thinking of you two. Country hugs and so much love...Sherry

I love the tiny green chair! What a cute thing to find. Happy Anniversary! My Honey and I met 2 yrs ago on April 1st! Our first date was 13 hours long also, only we were in Atlanta! It must mean love if your first date is 13 hrs long!

Debra@Common Ground said...

Love that green chair!!! I was totally fooled. Only thing was that it didn't have the seat that's molded to the backside! But the lemonade looks delish. Were you guys on a pub crawl in SA 4 year ago? That's what I would call a great first date. 13 hours of drinking, whew!
Shrimp was really good, but he couldn't find his "kitten" coozy!
love ya,
Deb

Ha! You funny girl! What a lovely wee little chair it is. And happy sort of anniversary to you too. Love the Riverwalk of San Antonio. Might make my way back there again this year. When I was there a couple of years ago, Renee took me to Guerne (sp?) and there's another little German town she would like to visit this time around. We'll see what I can work out. I wish I coulda had some green beer! Cheers! Tammy
