A New Table and a Dancing Lady

The other day we decided we needed a new lanai table.  We took our old one and left it at the Disappearing Shelf.  No matter what we put out there, it disappears in a couple hours.  Sure enough, the table was gone in a couple hours.  Goody.  Now someone has our happy green table on their lanai.

So, we went to Pier 1 and lo and behold there was the cutest sunflower table.  So we bought it and 2 matching chairs and toted them home.  What a disaster. The nuts were all a hair too small to fit on the bolts and the nuts to cap off the bolts were way too short and the bolts were too long.  So today we took it back.    Tempting fate, we merely exchanged it for a new one.

I fortified myself with lunch then decided to put it together.  Hooray!  It all fit and we have a new table and chairs.  Ipo decided to check it out and she approves.  Isn't it cool that our bright yellow cushions fit the new chairs perfectly?:D

Then I got out my wire and made this fun little dancing elf.

Love that happy bright sunflower table! Good that second time around everything went together perfectly! Looks like Ipo found a new place to relax.

Your dancing elf is adorable!

I really dislike it when the hardware doesn't fit. However, the table you exchanged is sooooo pretty!!!.

Thanks, friends! It IS a great place to sit. We have a lovely view of our grounds and pool/Ipo is out there as we speak, watching the world go by. :D
