Fairy Garden and Bistro Table-Show and Tell Friday!


Welcome to “Show and Tell Friday!” Do you have something special to share with us? It could be a trinket from grade school, a piece of jewelry, or a treasured collection. Look around your home for something to share; dig through those boxes in your closet if you have to! Share photos and the story that goes with your special item.

Bistro table
Happy Friday! Today, I am sharing a new addition to our patio. I fell in love with this mini bistro table set from Hobby Lobby, and I especially liked the 50% off price tag! I was originally going to put it in my secret garden on the side of the house, but it gets more use here.

Chair
It is wrought iron and has that white shabby look.

Table
Grace has a potted pink vinca on the table and there is a view of our water garden.

Pond
Our lily pads are slowly coming up and will turn bright green soon.

Fairy garden
Speaking of tables...the fairies in our garden have been enjoying their patio table as well.

Just like us, they've been busy gardening...

Oh My Gosh, Kelli! Everything looks so pretty. You have been working hard! We finally got some great weather here and Bob and I have been outside the last two afternoons working away.....but there is still so much to be done. Your pictures inspire me to hang in there and make our yard a wonderful place to visit.

Thanks for sharing. Love, Debbi

Mrs. Wright said...

I adore your blog! Your bistro table was so cute I ran to Hobby Lobby to get a set but my 13 year old son said " be orginal mother". I told him next time he stays home!We did pick up flowers and hostas for planting. Thank you for the inspiration.

Jackie said...

Jerelene said...

I absolutely love the table & chairs!! What a perfect place for coffee or tea. A romantic little getaway! I hope you post more pics of your lovely pond too!!

Jane said...

Kelli,

I like the table and chairs and am glad you got a good deal on them. Do you think the chairs would look good with some cushions you make out of colorful fabric for outdoor use? They would also be much more comfortable to sit on with a cup of tea and devotions. Thank you for sharing. I have not contributed but my explanation of what's happening is on my blog.
