~The Roundabout Bench~

On the pathway down the hill is this little roundabout. We put the bench there for those long walks back down from the hill above. The birds like to hang out in the trees and scuffle on the ground for food. It is a good spot to sit and just listen. Dig the dirt and…

~The Pine Throne~

Another place to pull up a seat for the fairies and gnomes. It is too sticky for humans but it will work just fine. We had to cut a pine down *sigh*. It was just in the wrong place for the electricity and the winds were due to blow it down. It was also to…

~The Bench At Hummingbird Oak~

This is one of the original built in benches on this property. There are a couple of spots like this under some of the Oaks to just sit and take in the shade. The hummingbirds like this particular tree I guess because it is secured and they know I feed them. I have to stand…

~A Freshening Up~

This little table set was ready to either throw or go into the spray paint waiting line. I am glad it ended up in line. From chipped black to off white it changed in just a day and was ready to pull up a seat and relax. You may have guessed by now we have…

~Side Yard Retreat~

The most interesting Doxie in the world decided to have some time with me out there also, so he pulled up his seat and settled in just to stare at me while I ate. Go Figure. Dig The Dirt & Stay Healthy. Til Next Time, Mrs. Shecky #Pull Up a Seat #24

~Aunt Jacquies Hands~

A Life’s Work. I have a pair of my Great Grandmother Chamberlain chairs that I do use and pull up a seat in all of the time. They were in her home and I remember them as a kid visiting her. My Great Aunt Jacquie who was physically challenged and lived her whole life with…

~ A New Look~

Today a couple of wooden chairs got a makeover for this year.  It was time.  So now I can pull up a seat in a refreshed new color and soon enough, fresh new cushions for them. Another Pull Up A Seat has been accomplished in the yard.  I like this challenge of finding spots to…

~Whatever Works~

I spent the last couple of days prepping for sipping and sitting in the back side patio, which I lovingly call the “bowling alley”. It is very long and probably one of the hardest spaces I have had to decorate to get comfortable. It is the only place that has concrete and that is not…
