That table setting with the lamp is so pretty. The wheelbarrow suggestion made me really laugh, if you could see our wheelbarrow, you would know why!

Pam, at times like this...I really wish I could just pop over and pour vodka into that milkshake. I have a feeling you would join me :)

Pam...what GREAT ideas! So fresh and so inviting! I love the idea of the lamp on the outdoor table setting. (We live in windy Kansas...and things blow off of our deck and patio! But if it was nice enough to entertain outside, I guess it would stay put! Ha!)

I LOVE your blog...and you are such a classy lady!

Love, Linda @ Truthful Tidbits
