I'm hoping for a long weekend...

As May opens up I have to admit it's my favorite time of year. For the record, I like October too. It's May that signals summer's on! It's about to begin...
I spend time outside everyday and love to sleep in the yard. Strange, I know. My patio furniture has been bugging me now for a couple of summers. This is the set that you purchase once and never again. Why? Because you can't lay down on a love seat. Hard lesson to learn as I lust after new patio furniture so I can nap.

For the record here, have you seen the prices for quality outdoor furniture? I never thought about it until I really started looking. And looking, and looking, and looking. 

One day while I was scrolling around on Craigslist.....it happened. And you know the rest! Sounding familiar because you know how this goes? Email back and forth. Drive to see it. Approve, and agree. Rent Uhaul cargo van, and pray that everything fits. The nicest couple posted this set for a screaming deal. I feel like I won the lottery! It's the Palmetto collection from Pottery Barn. I'm talking four chairs, table, massive umbrella, coffee table, and you guessed it. Sofa. The piece that started it all. Come to Mama. This is love! I couldn't be happier....

On a side note, this is the fourth major CL score coming out of a very small town South of Santa Barbara. Montecito. My Baker bed, Hendredon cabinet, chandelier, and now outdoor furniture. Of all the postings and areas that I check, this is where it all goes down for me. Kind of strange.

As soon as the Santa Ana winds stop, I'll be posting some photos of
my newest CL finds in my patio.

Sweet dreams...
