I really had in mind to do this on a budget and I think I achieved my goal. The little table, just large enough for two, came from World Market. It was the last one on the floor so they gave me a 20% discount. I just managed to squeeze it into my car.
I had bought the cushions at the end of last year in an attempt to prolong the life of the chairs. So, I didn't feel the great necessity to buy new chairs. I just removed the other two, one of which is really not useable any more.
It was breakfast for one this morning in the absence of the hunter gatherer. With me were my new little orange marmalade pot ( 99c at Goodwill). It is missing the little handle on the top but I am sure I can come up with something for that. With it my grandma's silver jam spoon. The hand-spun, hand-dyed, hand-knitted tea cozy I bought in England last year. One of my favorite English porcelain mugs. I even dug out the toast rack! And, because one or the other of us needs another garden project, Handmade Garden Projects.
What could be more perfect. The trickle of water, the cool of the morning. Ah! I think I'll stay here a little longer.
But then again I'd better get out there and do some gardening.
