Lying on the hammock in the garden I can look right up at my patio umbrella which is currently FESTOONED with these great patio lanterns from IKEA. I'm generally not a big box store kinda gal, but I have to admit, both this massive white PARASOL and these solar powered lanterns caught my eye. They are made of nylon so they will last outdoors and they make the garden so pretty during the day and create a lovely soft glow at night.
Sweet Mamma has made a remarkable recovery and is scheduled to leave hospital tomorrow and Foster Dog is apparently well settled in his new home in Upstate New York. He's probably going to spend weekends in the Hamptons. We're off tomorrow to Florida where we are hosting some of the LONG LOST FAMILY. Next post from the Sunshine State.
