August 11, 2009Vintage Metal Porch Furniture
Ugh, I hate getting sick. And worse than me getting sick is when Tom is sick. Poor guy. He got a nasty cold that has been going around and has been home sick for two days. Which is good because he needs to recover, but is also bad because he is messing up my social life! 🙂
Just kidding, Hubs.
Sara from AZ, who is on a fantastic road trip to get some vintage pink kitchen cabinets, was in Michigan on Monday and was going to stop by for a Mid-Century Menu luncheon. Unfortunately, we had to scrap that plan because Hubs was home from work, and I didn’t want Sara and her mom to get sick for their trip home. But I still had a great time giving Sara a quick tour of the house, and I hope she and her husband come back soon for another, longer visit!
I also had to scrap plans for craft club tomorrow night. Even though Tom will probably go into work, I don’t want to risk it in case he doesn’t. Besides, there are a couple girls in the group who have little kids, and I didn’t want them to be exposed to more germs than they need to be.
So, Hubs and I are home today hanging out. Time to play some Yahtzee, watch some movies and have fun. I am going to make the Mid-Century Menu tonight, and then probably some chocolate chip cookies as a treat for my sicky.
Oh, and the pictures are of the new red metal chairs we got recently from our friend, Karen. Karen is possibly the greatest real estate agent ever, and we have become friends even after the purchase of our house was all said and done. Since Karen and her husband are selling their lake home to downsize, she has been trying to pack up some stuff and get rid of other stuff. When I went to a get together at her house the other weekend, she had these two great metal chairs downstairs on her porch. I, of course, squealed and asked her where she got them. She said she had purchased them a few years ago from a rummage sale for $5 each, and painted them with this great red paint.
It turned out that Karen didn’t want to have to move the chairs, which are very heavy, so she gave them to me! Pretty nice, huh? I was really excited. Thanks again, Karen!
Well, I am off to make some tea for Hubs! Come back tomorrow for a great Mid-Century Menu!
